Coworking Spaces

What is coworking?

Coworking office spaces are made to encourage members to work collaboratively and share success. Different business owners and employees from a variety of companies share the space and bring their backgrounds together in a melting pot of skills and personalities. Co-Working spaces are suited to any style of work. There are bustling incubation areas to encourage the transfer of ideas, and there are also quiet areas and private rooms for those who find they work better in silence.

Why coworking?

Coworking office spaces are ideal places for cooperation between industries and the creation of great things together instead of in isolation. Coworking spaces offer mentorship from industry veterans, support from business owners having the same despairs and successes, encouragement from positive people, and even buyers when you launch your product or service. Co-working office spaces are the best ground zero an idea could possibly have!

In today’s day and age, businesses need to remain flexible in the face of economic development and change. Collaborative workspaces allow for small businesses to specialize in their area of strength while outsourcing their weaknesses to other small businesses in their vicinity. This way, multiple players win at the same time.

Is coworking right for me?

In short: Yes! Coworking is for anybody. A common misconception of coworking spaces is that they are always bustling, but, as long as the space you’re a member of contains quiet communal areas and private offices, you can still work the way you like. Furthermore, traditional commercial office spaces guarantee privacy but also isolation, with no added benefit of being able to step outside and network at your own leisure. Coworking offers the best of both worlds for any personality type.

In addition, starting up a small business comes with high costs and many fixed overheads. If you’re looking for office space too, setting up phone and internet, furnishing, beautifying and then maintaining the office can rack up a pretty penny. Coworking spaces take care of some costs by providing fully serviced spaces where every amenity a small business needs are already set up, leaving less work and less cost to you!

Roll’d Australia has grown to almost 70 stores nation-wide in just 5 years, bringing delicious, fresh and healthy food inspired by the streets of Vietnam right to our doorstep. Finding a vibrant and exciting environment for this rapidly growing business saw them moving out of their own headquarters and into Waterman Chadstone. Bao Hoang, co-Founder and CEO, shares the benefits his company sees everyday by being a part of our coworking community.

Ven Creative

In just 6 months, Steve and Andy from Ven Creative upgraded from part-time Hot Deskers, to full-time Dedicated Deskers and now have upgraded to their own private office in Waterman Chadstone. Working from home for 2 years meant it was hard for them to meet clients, collaborate with other businesses and find people to call friends. Now they believe that being a part of a Waterman centre has changed not only their business but their personal life for the better.
