One of the first questions we receive when sharing the story of 143 CoWork in Waynesboro, VA is, “what exactly is coworking space?”. In the most simplest terms, whether in Crozet, Staunton, Charlottesville or San Francisco, a coworking space is a shared office space. In practice though, coworking is much more than just an amalgamation of different professionals working in the same building. Coworking spaces started in San Francisco in 2005, and today there are over 4,000 coworking spaces in the United States.. Presently, one in four workers currently have a job where they can perform all or some of their work from home or somewhere other than the traditional office environment. 45% of US workers hold a position that is compatible with teleworking, but 143 CoWork is available to anyone who can use the office space, or just wants to support our cause in giving back to the community.
