Coworking Business Model Template

Hard to believe as it may be, the coworking industry is growing fast without there being a lot of commonly accepted business models for it.

On its own, coworking actually doesn’t work all that well as a business, unless you approach it in one of a handful of ways that have proven to be effective.

wIf you rush into building a space without planning out how the model will be sustainable, you’ll hit some serious challenges down the road–whether by way of burnout, or competition, or rent hikes.

I’m here to do whatever I can to help ensure you avoid that.

Which takes us to business models.

I’ve adadpted the projections we used at New Work City, which actually ended up being scarily accurate over the course of 5 years, so you don’t have to start from scratch.
