The coworking industry is currently growing as more people search for a place where they can work—without being at home, in a coffee shop, or shelling out rent on an office space. It has been gaining so much popularity, that currently there are around 8.000 coworking spaces around the world.
Coworking space is also a great solution to stay connected and creative. Normally put in practice by either freelancers, startup team, solo entrepreneurs or remote workers for companies.
In general, coworking spaces have numerous benefits for members such as a lack of household distractions, improved productivity, socialization, networking, flexibility, amenities (like fast internet and coffee) and much more. These benefits, among others, make the idea of using a coworking space tempting.
Before explaining the benefits and perks of been part of the Bcombinator Community, first you should know: what is Bcombinator? More than a coworking space is an innovation and business hub to help startups and companies accelerate and consolidate their business (We Help Startup Grow!), and to expand internationally.
Well, here are 10 of Bcombinator´s perks and benefits :
- Cost Effective: advantage of freebies
If you rent your own office, you have to pay for utilities, office supplies, and any additional amenities. With a shared office space, utilities such as water, gas, electricity, and internet are taken care of in your contract. The office is setup with desks, chairs, conference rooms and more amenities that will be explained later.
Signing up to use Bcombinator space means that all the things that would have prevented you from starting right away have already been taken care of. You can get straight to work! All of the office setups have already been done.

Bcombinator is a collaborative workspace filled with hard-working, intelligent, and innovative people. And also gives you access to be part of an international network of entrepreneurs and to the club of entrepreneurs, investors, mentors and business executives.
