Ten years ago this month, coworking was born in San Francisco when Brad Neuberg set up some card tables and invited people to work alongside him. There are now over 3,000 coworking spaces worldwide.
Countless people have helped coworking become a global movement. Shareable reached out to some of these visionaries to find out what they’ve learned in the past 10 years, what the future of coworking will bring, and what challenges the movement faces. Weighing in on the conversation are Alex Hillman, cofounder of Indy Hall; Ronald van den Hoff, cofounder of Seats2meet; Liz Elam, Executive Producer of the Global Coworking Unconference Conference (GCUC); Tara Hunt, cofounder of Citizen Space; Ashley Proctor, Executive Producer of GCUC Canada; Tony Bacigalupo, cofounder of New Work City, Lori Kane, founder of in-home coworking space Collective Self; Jacob Sayles, cofounder of Office Nomads; and Jeremy Neuner, cofounder of NextSpace.
