From starting with just a few spaces in 2005 to over 800 in 2016, co-working spaces are becoming increasingly popular.

Co-working spaces help foster collaborative and innovative work environments.
In addition to co-working spaces, incubators and accelerators are options for small business and startups to help grow their companies early on.
