GUIDE: HOW TO CHOOSE A COWORKING SPACE

group 25(1)

So you’ve decided that you want to change it up, and you’re looking for a new workspace, because after all, working remotely doesn’t always mean working from home.

Choosing the right coworking space is a crucial decision for entrepreneurs and creatives looking for a productive and collaborative work environment. In this blog post, we will explore key factors to consider when selecting a coworking space that aligns with your business needs. 

Your Working Style & How the Workspace Fits Your Needs

Before diving into the selection process, it’s essential to identify your specific business requirements. Consider factors such as the size of your team, the nature of your work, and any specialized amenities or services you may need. Once you understand how your workspace needs fit into your working style, you’ll be able to quickly identify what coworking space will cater best to your needs.

Location, Location, Location 

The location of your coworking space can significantly impact your daily routine. Do you take a lot of client meetings in a certain part of town? Or do you live near a coworking space that cuts down your commute time? It’s important that you choose a space that is easily accessible for you and your team, taking into account proximity to public transportation, parking facilities, and nearby amenities. 

Ampersand Studios has coworking spaces in Miami and Nashville, both located in prime areas, offering convenient member access to its building and proximity to popular nearby restaurants and happenings.

Amenities, Facilities & Networking Opportunities

The majority of coworking spaces provide amenities such as high-speed internet, meeting rooms, phone booths, printing services, and a well-equipped kitchen. Additionally, one of the key advantages of coworking spaces is the opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals. When you’re making your decision on what kind of workspace fits your needs the best, it’s important to consider the different uses you can get out of a space, the people who work in it, and the community aspect of the space – events, networking sessions, and collaborative initiatives.

Work Environment & Flexibility

Choosing the right coworking space is a bit like dating. It’s important that you go on a couple dates before committing to a partner. Different businesses have different needs, and a good coworking space should offer flexibility in membership plans. We encourage visitors to work from our Member’s Lounge and experience the Ampersand Studios space to get a feel for space, community and amenities before committing to a membership. Depending on your working style and business needs, you’ll be able to determine if a Resident Membership, Content Creator Membership or Private Office will best suit your needs. 

Choosing the right coworking space is a strategic decision that can significantly impact your business’s success. By carefully considering factors such as location, amenities, community, and budget, you can find a space that aligns with your professional goals. 

Speaking of flexibility, Ampersand Studios partners with booking platforms like Deskpass, Peerspace, and ONDA Life* to help connect people to our workspace through a variety of booking options including day passes and conference room bookings that will help you get a taste of the Ampersand Studios experience.
