Coworking is a form of shared space where you join many businesses in one office. The difference between coworking and our shared space service in NYC is that there is no host company that owns rights to the space. Instead, coworking companies like WeWork own the space but do not reside in it — leaving the floor plan open to a group of businesses who book space by the seat or office.
f you’re looking for networking opportunities in NYC or a sense of community, coworking could be a strong option. Request a free consultation and we’ll evaluate your office space needs and connect you with the right inventory (coworking or otherwise).

“At first, I thought I’d be fine with a desk in a pit. But eventually, we grew by a few more people and coworking just wasn’t the vibe I wanted. There’s high turnover in coworking spaces and it doesn’t feel like your own.
At the same time, I didn’t want to lose momentum by moving into an office by ourselves, we needed to feed off of the focus and organization of a more established corporation while staying inspired by the ‘hungry’ startups also sharing the space.
Additionally, the little things that come along with leasing an office, like ordering paper, stocking the pantry and dealing with utilities, are just too much for a young team. When you hire young, driven talent, you want them to be able to focus on growing the business, not calling the plumber.
Using PivotDesk to set up our temporary NYC office, we were able to identify great options and schedule tours in 15 minutes.
Now that we’re moved in, the real kicker is how much we learn from our host company. We’re still figuring out how to operate on two coasts, so, it’s invaluable to be able to work side by side with such a successful company in our own industry, and learn from how they operate on multiple continents.”
