Shared office spaces, or coworking spaces seem to be popping up everywhere. From the suburbs of New York to remote beaches of Bali Indonesia and over 300 major cities around the globe, each new coworking space only seems to be more innovative than the last.
As of October 2017, in no particular order, here are the most innovative office spaces the coworking world has to offer…
1. Iceaddis in Ethiopia
This collaborative workspace in Ethiopa is made entirely out of repurposed shipping containers. The structure was originally designed to be an art gallery, but now serves as a coworking space environment for small startups and entrepreneurs to work on launching their big idea.
Aside from it’s remarkably innovative infrastructure, Iceaddis is also ahead of the curve in Ethiopa by providing internet to members – as less that 1% of the nation’s 85 million citizens are connected.

2. Agora Collective in Berlin, Germany
Nothing fits the Berlin style more perfectly than an edgy, artsy coworking space. Agora Collective is open 24/7 and is known for their countless events – like workshops, exhibitions, pop up dinners, concerts, films and much more.
The community managers have made it a priority to bring diversity into the workspace and grow a strong coworking community: the key factors for innovation.

3. Hubud in Bali, Indonesia
Hubud is located in one of the most naturally picturesque parts of central Bali – Ubud. This coworking space offers some of the fastest internet on the island and some delicious foodie innovation with an organic café featuring some amazing clean-eats options.
While the Hubud community is mostly digital nomads and vacationing remote workers, it doesn’t hinder the awesome sense of welcoming community.

4. Bridgeworks in Long Beach, New York (Shameless plug)
This beachy coworking space is located just outside the hustle and bustle of the big apple in Long Beach, Long Island. Bridgeworks was curated to maintain a healthy work-life balance for the commuting New Yorker – offering an ideal location just close enough to Manhattan, yet far enough to be able to relax (and also avoid the LIRR).
The office space in Nassau County also features flexible member packages, a ping pong table, state of the art conference rooms, a fully equipped kitchen, surfboard racks and a short walk to boardwalk and beach!
