Syndey’s best coworking spaces: In the high tech world of today’s startups, owners basically have three choices when it comes to workspace in Sydney: They can work from home, out of a cluttered home office full of distractions, they can hire and expensive office space that must be serviced periodically and cleaned constantly, or they can go with a much more sensible option, the coworking space. A coworking space gives companies all the benefits of an open office space, with none of the responsibility. They simply decide how many desks they need and how long they will need them, agree to a payment plan, and they’ve got their space.
