Home alone, sweating over a hot computer with a poor internet connection is hardly conducive to efficient productivity. Well, fortunately, there is help, as the nature of the work landscape is rapidly changing with an increasing trend for freelancers and small business owners to unite in one venue and share not only space, but advice and resources.
The variety of such locations is growing too from designated areas in shopping malls and some progressive hotels, to a mix of dedicated centers for those who seek collective inspiration, networking opportunities, and yes, a reliable internet service.
Here are just some of the leading providers in what is already a competitive sector:
