When Campbell McKellar decided to leave her established career in real estate development for self-employment, she started searching for her own office, but was shocked at how hard it was to find shared workspaces. So she founded Loosecubes.
This new website connects extra office space with people who want to work in it ? think Craigslist but with more style and regulation. Anyone can list (at monthly, weekly, or daily rates) a spare room or desk in anything from an industrial loft to home office.
Amenities like Wi-Fi and printer access are standard, but some postings also boast cool perks like coworker brainstorming sessions and full-time receptionists.
And since Loosecubes doesn't take a cut or set the deals' terms, rental amounts are delightfully reasonable. A few spaces, in fact, are priced as entirely free.
There are currently listings in more than 100 cities worldwide, but even if your hometown isn't represented, don't feel tied to your local Starbucks. Instead, check back soon (the website's offerings are rapidly expanding) ? or submit your own Loosecube.
