Since its early beginnings in 2005 in San Francisco, the Coworking phenomenon has become one of the fastest growing markets in the world (Di Risio, Coworking Resources, 2019). The United States continue to have the highest concentration of spaces, however, the number of coworking spaces worldwide is predicted to reach 26,000 by 2022, which is an increase of 42% from 2019 (Hobson, Coworking Resources, 2019).

The success of these institutions can be explained by their response to changes in the working environment. Many professionals are choosing to branch out on their own or explore other avenues instead of working for global corporations. On the other side of this, many companies are allowing employees to work remotely from home, or even in another state to allow for better work-life balance.

Consumers are spoilt for choice when deciding on which coworking space best suits their needs, with many specializing in niche markets such as women, creatives, the tech savvy or the elderly. To see how broad the coworking industry is I have shared a few examples of new spaces who are serving niche markets.

Senior Planet: This non for-profit organization is a space where seniors can learn the skills they need to conquer the ever-changing technological environment. The New York based service offers free courses to the elderly in a safe and engaging environment to improve their quality of life and ensure they don’t get left behind. The organization has a busy events calendar across 6 locations throughout the US, allowing members build new connections and friendships. For those who cannot access the inhouse offerings, Senior Planet is also online! The publication shares articles such as ‘how to pay your bills online’, ‘understanding mindfulness apps and ‘how to identify scam calls’.

The Wing:  The Wing is a women-focused coworking space which was inspired by the women’s club movement formed in the 19th and 20th century. With roots in New York, The Wing has taken the world by storm with 8 locations in operation and plans for many more to come. Equipped with childcare facilities, pump & beauty rooms and a focus on pastel interiors, this coworking space knows how to appeal to their target market.
