When your home isn’t conducive to concentration and cafés are too loud and crowded, where is the freelance professional supposed to work? Productive workspaces are vital to conducting your business. The digital economy More and more Danes are turning to freelance employment. The digital economy is here to stay and many enjoy the benefits of being ‘free birds’, who can decide when, where, how long and for whom they work. These workers are in search of productive spaces to work from and conduct business. One major solution to this growing problem is co-working spaces – communal offices that are shared by new businesses, digital companies, freelancers and entrepreneurs. Increase in Copenhagen While co-working has been on the rise for a few years now, it looks as if 2016 may be the year that co-working will become mainstream. The number of small and large co-working spaces in Copenhagen is continuing to grow. It is only a little more than a year ago that Rainmaking Loft –Denmark’s largest co-working space – opened its doors to 350 people working mostly in scalable digital start-ups. The space was recently awarded the Best Office Space Award at the Nordic Startup Awards. Just a week ago they announced a partnership with Tryg regarding the opening of a large new space in Ballerup called The Camp.
