A co-working space is an office or a place where businesspeople, generally those from start-ups, share office space and facilities such as rooms for various activities such as meetings and seminars. Co-working spaces have become popular due to their lower cost and opportunities for networking.

The upcoming space is said to have facilities such as computers, internet connection, a printer and scanner.
