How to find your space?
There are many sites where you can find a coworking space. The best known is Bureaus A Partager (BAP). The latter brings together different spaces: independent offices, offices shared by companies, coworking spaces, incubators or meeting rooms.
On average, it takes less than 15 days to find and sign for the rental of a workspace. This is a clear advantage for freelancers and startups who really need flexibility.
On the contract side, there is also a variety of contracts available: rental, sublease, service provision, precarious or 3/6/9 year lease.
On the site, the search is done in three clicks: you choose the desired city, the size of the team and the monthly budget. And presto, voila, the results are displayed and can be filtered according to different criteria (surface, configuration of space, neighboring transport, etc.).
The right solution to find a space for your convenience is also to use your contacts. The network works just as well to find a job, a nice restaurant or an interesting workspace. Because nuggets are not always found on the Internet but also in “real live”.
Someone who knows someone who knows someone can surely give you the keys to happiness … Or those of your future office, your choice! 😉
Finally more than a simple office, coworking, beyond being a trend in clear progression for the companies, turns into a new space of opening, construction and therefore of development.
