Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen/heard various levels of government support being offered to coworking spaces, and the (often small) businesses behind them or growing within their walls or corridors.
We expect to see more and more local alliances, assemblies and other cooperative efforts become more vocal about what they’d need to not only survive the current crisis, but to be in the best position to spearhead local economic recovery efforts.
We’ll be tweeting about some of these local efforts as they launch, so be sure to follow @includedco for all the latest.
Working alongside, for, and with hundreds of entrepreneurial communities all around the world, we wanted to share 3 important reasons why every government should take a long-hard think about how best they can support these important businesses. Local businesses who have each individually made it their mission to play a part in enabling millions of local businesses, freelancers and economies.
Ofcourse, it should also be noted that a vast majority of coworking spaces are small or medium businesses themselves, creating jobs, training up staff and can often be seen re-investing into both, big cities and some of the worlds’ “forgotten” neighborhoods.
