According to Kyle Pinto, "Coworking spaces are essentially shared workspaces. They offer affordable office space for those looking to escape the isolation of a home office or coffee shop. These shared workspaces offer a suite of office-like amenities such as hot-desks, private meeting rooms, kitchens, coffee and more. Often, they also offer a community. Occupants typically are freelancers, entrepreneurs, start-ups and small teams who want to take advantage of a flexible space." These spaces are highly sought after and have been so successful that major corporations have integrated them into their conventional spaces. Luis Estrada adds that "The benefits ... is that they afford start-ups with an opportunity to stay lean, an inexpensive avenue for community and collaboration, as well as a lively and dynamic atmosphere that inspires productivity."
