Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, often an office, and independent activity. Unlike in a typical office environment, those coworking are usually not employed by the same organization.  Typically it is attractive to work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation.  Coworking is also the social gathering of a group of people who are still working independently, but who share values,  and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with like-minded talented people in the same space.   Coworking offers a solution to the problem of isolation that many freelancers experience while working at home, while at the same time letting them escape the distractions of home.   Coworking is not only about the physical space, but about establishing the coworking community first. Its benefits can already be experienced outside of its spaces, and it is recommended to start with building a coworking community first before considering opening a Coworking space.  However, some coworking spaces don’t build a community: they just get a part of an existing one by combining their opening with an event which attracts their target group.
