In recent years, we have witnessed the pros and cons of working from home. However, in this article, we shift our focus to the advantages of co-working spaces, like the ones Start it Hubs Belgium's locations offer.

These shared workspaces offer an alternative to traditional offices and remote work setups, providing professionals with a range of benefits, in particular, fostering a dynamic community of networking and innovation. If you feel the need to explore and dive into the innovation community experience, join us at our Open Coworking Days in Antwerp on September 6th & 7th.

5 Benefits of coworking space

Enhanced Productivity

One of the primary benefits of co-working spaces is the conducive environment they provide for increased productivity. Research, including the Harvard study, has found that professionals working in co-working spaces tend to be more productive compared to those working from home or in traditional offices.
The dynamic atmosphere and presence of motivated individuals foster a sense of accountability and motivation, sparking creativity and problem-solving.


Coworking spaces offer flexibility in terms of workspace and payments. You can choose to rent a desk, a private office, or a meeting room whenever it suits you or your clients, depending on their needs. Co-working spaces are equipped with all modern amenities like high-speed internet, printing and scanning facilities, coffee machines, and more. Consider also that if you join a Start it X community hub, you will have access to 7 different locations, including workspaces in Brussels, Antwerp, Liege, and more.

Access to Specialized Resources

Co-working spaces often provide access to specialized resources that individuals may not have on their own. Theseresources can include mentorship programs, business support services, and in our community, the possibility to network in an innovators-only space. Leveraging these resources enhances skills, gains valuable insights, and overcomes common obstacles, offering a competitive advantage.

Cost-Effectiveness and Reduced Overhead

For startups, freelancers, and small businesses, co-working spaces offer a cost-effective alternative to leasing and maintaining a traditional office. The shared infrastructure and services significantly reduce overhead costs, allowing individuals and teams to allocate their resources more efficiently.

Work-Life Balance and Well-being

Coworking spaces prioritize work-life balance and well-being. With amenities such as relaxation areas, and community events, Hubs members can take care of their personal and professional well-being while being productive as part of a community. This holistic approach to work contributes to increased happiness, job satisfaction, and overall quality of life

Whether you're a freelancer, entrepreneur, or part of a small team looking to foster innovation, diving into a coworking space especially suited for innovation can remarkably expand your horizons, forge valuable connections, and ignite fresh waves of inspiration.
