Best Female-Centric Coworking in the World

Has working from a female-dominated workspace ever crossed your mind? Here are the best places across the globe!

Fifty years ago, the concept of female entrepreneurs or women-led startups seemed ambitious. However, we've made incredible leaps forward in the last two decades, with the number of female entrepreneurs increasing by 114%.

We also need to recognise the needs of this market segment, starting with identifying ideal working environments for women with these remarkable statistics in mind. 

Coworking spaces have materialised worldwide in different shapes and forms. Still, some shared offices exhibit a "boy's club feel" with beer, ping pong and machoism that isn't to the taste of all of its members, nor does it match the unique needs of some professional women.

While a subject of intense debate, the growing success of women-focused shared offices shows there's a need for them in the business world, providing services, support and networking opportunities to women that typical coworking spaces might lack.

In honour of women's month, we're dropping our list of the very best coworking spaces centred around women. Take a look at our best female-focused coworking and virtual spaces that prioritise female-focused mentorship, connection and community.
