The Ultimate Guide to Co-Working Spaces in Singapore

For freelancers and independent professionals, working from the cozy confines of home, while inspiring creativity, does tend to cripple productivity. Though one can cafe-hop, it can only remain as a short-term solution — those cups of coffee and all-day breakfasts don’t come cheap.

Enter co-working spaces — the ideal working environment that allows remote workers to retain their autonomy, yet give them a form of structure in order to keep productivity levels high. They are inexpensive office spaces available for rent, with spaces ranging from hot desks (a seat at shared desks), dedicated desks (a personal desk set aside for you), and even private office suites to accommodate growing startups.

There are plenty of pros when it comes to co-working spaces. But the question then becomes — which do I choose?

We have taken the liberty to provide our readers with this extensive guide to the array of co-working spaces available in Singapore, the spaces arranged according to location (central, central east, central south, city, south). Though most spaces only offer monthly membership packages, the first few from each category are perfect for workers with irregular working patterns, offering walk-in prices on a day to day basis.

Other Perks 

Striving to be melting pots of ideas and ingenuity, most co-working spaces hold community events that bring together their members,  giving members a platform to socialise and build their networks. Often, guest speakers from high-profile companies are invited to give talks as well, lending members expert advice and motivation.

Virtual offices are something that most co-working spaces offers as well, equipping entrepreneurs with a shared fax number, small parcel handling, and local mail forwarding services.

If you’re still unsure about which office is the best one for you, take a free trial. Most of these spaces do offer free one-day trials or tours, simply contact them via their website.
