News of the 31/05/2018

Born in the early 2000s in the United States, the coworking concept has developed strongly in Europe since 2010. Today, there are more than 600 such spaces throughout France ; the market has even grown by 80% between 2016 and 2017 and half of the one million daily coworkers are located in the Paris region. In just a few years, this new form of collaborative office rental has given rise to hybrid premises capable of shaking up professional habits and practices. BURO Club explains everything about the coworking trend !

The principle

Originally, coworking was created so that self-employed workers could work outside the home. The spaces have therefore been designed in a practical and functional manner. Also, sharing office space made it possible on average to save between 30% and 50% compared to a traditional rental. Over time, these places have become trendy and their offers have diversified. The coworkers' profile has also broadened to bring together freelancers, startupers and even employees from large groups. All the world' countries have now integrated this principle and Paris is even among the most coworking cities with New York, Barcelona and London.

The BURO Club coworking offer

To adapt its offer and meet the strong demand in Paris and throughout the country, the BURO Club business centres have been equipped with collaborative coworking areas so that each member can benefit from varied but equally flexible services. The sedentary clientele meets nomad entrepreneurs who come to enjoy fully equipped collective offices by the hour, by the day or by the month. In addition to its coworking offer in Paris, BURO Club offers them reliable addresses to locate their company, other complementary reception and secretarial services. By expanding its offer, BURO Club keeps abreast of changes affecting the sector in order to participate in the emergence of new professional perspectives.

The new challenges of coworking

Sharing and kindness are coworking's watchwords. Beyond the practical aspect, renting a shared workspace does serve to feed your network, accelerate its growth and why not encourage new collective projects. It is in any case these reasons which push each year number of d’entrepreneur∙s towards these alternatives. In the long run, this dynamic has succeeded in creating a community and an ecosystem that we hope will be sustainable and prosperous.
