professionals have opted to work in co-working spaces. This emerging office type appears to provide a
resourceful environment for this particular target group because it provides opportunities for social
support in addition to flexible business infrastructure. To date, only a few scientific investigations of coworking spaces have been conducted. The purpose of the study is to understand the concept of the coworking space and analyse the reason why people prefer and use co working space. The findings highlight
