As a freelancer, startup founder, or digital nomad, you should consider the advantages of coworking when you pick your work environment. Working at home or taking your laptop to a coffee shop might sound like a dream, but can also be challenging and frustrating. The other solution would be renting a long-term office space which results in high costs and lack of flexibility. That’s where coworking comes in! A “coworking space” is a place where you can go on a daily basis, sit down at a random table, and enjoy a good internet connection, coffee, a kitchen, and the company of like-minded people. Altogether, it supplies you with an office environment without the necessity of everyone working on the same project, to each his/her own, but together. Those spaces are now becoming common and considered a lifesaver.

The East End renaissance is here! 1.5 miles from the revitalization of East Liberty and the complexes of Bakery Square, Wilkinsburg is in the path of progress and an up & coming area to live and work.
