We had a damn good time building a coworking space that meant the world to us. We'll teach you how to do the same.

New Work City was Manhattan's first (and most beloved) coworking space from 2008 to 2015. Since then, we've helped thousands of people start and grow their spaces all over the world.

We want lots of people to build thriving, amazing community spaces everywhere. If you're building a coworking space, this site is here to help you.

Coworking Business Planning & Fundraising Workshop

Figuring out your space's business model doesn't have to be hard. The Coworking Business Planning & Fundraising Workshop will help you identify the sustainable coworking model that works for you. Even more, it will help you come up with a plan to raise the funds you'll need to get your doors open.

Hi, I'm Tony Bacigalupo.

I've been in the coworking world since I first discovered it happening in a loft apartment in 2007. That inspired me to lead the charge to open Manhattan's first coworking space, New Work City, in 2008.

Since then, I've been writing, consulting, and speaking about coworking all over the world, working with thousands of people building spaces everywhere.

I also help run the nonprofit that powers the free resources at coworking.org.

I'm taking what I've learned and sharing it with people who are building not just workspaces but places that aspire to be impactful local institutions. If you want to build a space like that in your city, I want to see you succeed!
