“This goes beyond renting a desk, it’s all about creating and engaging a community of like-minded professionals, I like to think of it as a physical professional network. It creates this serendipitous opportunity for other people who want to connect and join a community, not just a desk.”
YES. I was thinking a while ago that Airbnb would be perfect for this and then SOMEONE TOTALLY STOLE MY IDEA OUT OF MY HEAD. Oh well, at least there are some spots in Chicago already.
Another great resource for finding Chicago coworking spaces is DeskTime. It’s more a filterable directory, though it had a good head start on ShareDesk so there are quite a few more listings.
