What is Coworking/Coworking Space?
Coworking is an arrangement in which workers of different companies share an office space, allowing cost savings and convenience through the use of common infrastructure, such as equipment, utilities, and receptionist and custodial services, and in some cases refreshments and parcel acceptance services.
Coworking is not only about providing a physical place, but also about establishing a community. Coworking space is basically a type of workplace where we share the same work environment, thus making a community in the same area.
A major differentiator between this and a traditional office is flexibility, since you don’t need to sign a long-term lease in a coworking space.
Facilities majorly found in Cowork spaces include but not limited to:
- Beautiful workstations
- Internet access
- Steady Power
- Printing Services
- Board/Meeting rooms
- Equipped Training Halls
- Shared kitchens, bathrooms and lounges etc.
Why a Co-work Space ?
Community – working alone or from home can be very lonely and creates a sense of isolation. Coworking spaces surround you with professionals and other like minded people. You are able to surround yourself with people and even if you have a private space, you still have that sense of belonging while being able to socialize at your convenience. We have a vast variation of communities at Vatebra Tech Hub. There’s the developers community, robotics, real estate, agriculture, finance amongst others and we offer different meetups and events to bring everyone together so we grow together.
Cost efficient / Flexibility – getting a workspace is very affordable and you have options to fit your budget. You can opt for shared rooms, private offices, daily plans, special plans etc. As your team grows, you can also have them working from spaces to reduce cost. Also you know you are not incurring any extra costs on amenities like light, internet etc.
You don’t have to worry about the generator getting faulty and slow internet speed/ and general office maintenance. All you have to do is to focus on your work.
Vatebra Tech Hub also offers plans like Virtual plan where you get to use the office address as your office address and travelers plan for people who move around a lot but need space to work once in a while. There are daily and hourly plans for your meetings and training too so you get to choose the right fit for you. (Remote workers as a result of the pandemic).
Networking Opportunities – using a coworking space lets you surround yourself with goal-oriented and high-achieving professionals. You are able to connect with others in that community to grow your business. Being around people who are very professionally minded means there will be endless networking opportunities and you never can tell who you will meet to help you grow your business. You have access to different advice and referrals. We try to connect people to companies and opportunities as much as we can because we believe strongly that your growth is our growth.
Increased Productivity – It’s easy to want to sleep/rest more if you are working from home and this reduces productivity. A cowork space encourages consistent work structures that allow you separate your personal space from your professional life while still being comfortable. All the distractions that would have come up at home like watching TV or sleeping or laundry is all gone. The added presence of other professionals will help motivate you to work more thereby increasing your productivity.

You’re able to interact with people in different or same fields and increase your knowledge on what you do or learn something new entirely. If you hit a roadblock, you can always find assistance.
