The Ultimate List of Philadelphia CoWorking Spaces for Entrepreneurs

space-desk-office-workspace.jpg

More and more entrepreneurs and freelancers are utilizing co-working/shared office spaces and it’s becoming a thing of the norm.

Co-working spaces are great for collaboration, professionalism and sharing resources – both mentally and physically.

They are great places to meet clients, work on projects, utilizes resources such as printers, copiers and fax machine, and some even provide you with an office street address.

We have worked hard to compile the ultimate list of co-working spaces in Philadelphia.  Since pricing, amenities and info changes all the time, we felt it was best to give a list with a photo, a description of the space and a photo.  We tried our best to capture them all, but if we missed a few, leave them in the comments, email us or tweet us and we’ll add them in when we update the list. These are in no particular order, so go ahead and check out the list.
