Need Office Space? Try Co-Working For Free


The new trend of co-working allows entrepreneurs to build community in shared work spaces that are inexpensive and professional. Co-working space provider OfficeLinks hopes to grow the market for this service and lure lonesome work-at-homers out into their ready-to-use offices and meeting rooms with Free Fridays.

Workers in Chicago and New York can try the Co-Working Offices – office spaces with enterprise-grade technology and workplace infrastructure – for free on Fridays. The offices are fully-furnished and staffed. They can be accessed on a transactional basis – as needed. The Co-Working program includes access to modern workstations, free WIFI, as well as refreshments and snacks to fuel the brain.

Interested professionals may register by calling (646) 512 – 5700. Each Friday starting on August 28th there will be ten no-charge spaces available.

“The current economic climate has created a new category of mobile professionals who are demanding affordable, business-ready places to work, on-demand,” stated Harsh Mehta, chief operating officer and executive vice president of OfficeLinks.

“We launched OfficeLinks Co-Working product based on strong customer demand. We also recognize that people who are not familiar with this leading-edge workplace concept may want to take a test drive first. As such we are offering Co-Working Fridays free through the summer so that they may try our next-generation workspace and experience whether Co-Working is right for them. We are confident they will enjoy the ability to access our professional workspace with the same ease they would a coffee shop or hotel.”

I’m sure we’d all be curious to hear from anyone who takes advantage of Free Fridays.
