Low costs and high returns: co-working has many advantages over a traditional office – especially in Bremen. Co-working is based on the idea of an office community where people share their work space. This brings down rental costs considerably, and many shared offices also have secretarial services for receiving mail and calls, and taking care of security and organisation.
But what is much more important to the co-workers is the community: being able to work with like-minded people in the same place, discussing projects, jointly developing new ideas, or simply getting a second opinion. Just the thing for freelancers, small start-ups, and self-employed members of the creative economy. Often, communal events are set in motion as a result of discussions around the office coffee machine.
There are many types of co-working spaces in Bremen, ranging from open-plan offices, where desks must be cleared every night, to fixed, individual offices. The rental period also varies hugely: while many offices rent out their spaces on a daily or weekly basis, others prefer a longer business relationship and seek out tenants who will move in for several months.
