Top 10 Coworking Space Directories

Top 10 Coworking Space Directories

With growing number of coworking spaces all over the world, coworking directories have become a necessity for anyone who is looking for a coworking space to work in. The potential clients looking for coworking are entrepreneurs, freelancers, travelers and anyone who wants to upgrade their work experience and is tired working from home. Coworking directories take different approaches in featuring spaces, some are showing maps focusing on the location of those spaces, others provide specific filters you can use to find your perfect space (e.g. suitable for pets, public transport accessibility and more). The filters and extra information are specifically relevant for coworking spaces as they are trying to differentiate themselves and cater for different niches. Coworking owners therefore would be wise to list themselves on as many directories as possible to make sure they receive maximum visibility to potential clients.

We sifted through a long list of coworking directories to bring you some of the best ones. All the directories are free to list on, but some of them might charge a premium for advertising your space and additional coworking space management tools.
