With a rising amount of jobs you can do remotely, the trend of location independent workers is becoming very popular. The fast-growing group of digital nomads usually gathers in co-working spaces designed to provide a solid environment with all essentials for getting the work done.
Lately, nomadism is upgrading to a new level. Nomads are recently demanding more than just a shared office, they also want to live together. Recent months brought up plenty of new-opened co-living spaces where like-minded people co-exist together as coworkers and housemates.
Actually, the co-living concept isn’t a brand new idea. It became popular in 2013 at inexpensive locations. Aspiring nomads aimed to cut the expenses of living together in shared houses.
Nowadays, entrepreneurs don’t share houses to save a few bucks, but they prefer to be surrounded by an inspiring community of other remote workers.
