Coworking is arriving at a new stage. The stand alone coworking space model will keep growing. However, new players are implementing the coworking model in new context and for new kinds of purposes. Universities, city development agencies, incubators, hotels and more are taking coworking as a operational tool to generate new collaborations and connections. This is just the beginning.
The presentation has been given by Jean-Yves Huwart, at the Global Coworking Conference Unconference of Austin, Texas.
