By Suvi Hoikka

There’s an increasing number of freelancers and startups choosing coworking spaces over congested coffee shops and diners with free wifi. We’ve already discussed in a previous post about why this shift is occurring, but the simple reason is that these spaces promote collaboration and productivity.
