You’re independent but you don’t have to be alone. In the past few years, the coworking movement has resulted in community-minded spaces for independent workers around the world. These are not stiff and stifling “business incubator” or “office condo” spaces. They are spaces where independent workers come together for collaboration and camaraderie.
If you are in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area, we invite you to join us at The Workantile Exchange - a coworking space in the heart of downtown. The location is outstanding, the community is vibrant and the benefits of membership are vast.
If you are not local to Ann Arbor, we encourage you to find not an employees around you. You can check the Coworking Wiki to see if there is an existing space near you, or you might consider starting your own ad hoc group. Most coworking spaces start out humbly, as groups of like-minded people getting together regularly at coffee shops or in other public spaces. Community comes first.
