Brave New Coworking World
FAST COMPANY | Coworking has evolved beyond spaces to socialize and collaborate into mini networks where entrepreneurs circulate through different work environments depending on the phase and needs of the projects, Fast Company explains. One of the most prominent examples of this is the 5M project in San Francisco and its three inaugural tenants: Hub SoMa (a communal workspace for social entrepreneurs), TechShop (a DIY workshop), and Intersection for the Arts (a not-for-profit arts incubator). "It's not creating a Starbucks," says Alexa Arena of Forest City Development, the lead firm on the project. "It's creating a center of gravity that's constantly going."
