April 2019 – A coworking office is a collaborative workspace which is ideal for any entrepreneur when you start looking for your first formal office. These types of shared workspaces are becoming more popular in South Africa with business centres such as The Business Exchange, opening up these coworking office spaces in Johannesburg and surrounding areas.
Coworking workspaces offer open plan office layouts which can be rented on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and which are a cost-effective alternative to traditional commercial office space.
Coworking offices are uniquely designed to attract entrepreneurs and offer them a full work-life balance. To this end, you will find them equipped with facilities such as private meeting rooms, events spaces, onsite restaurants, coffee shops and even gyms.
South Africa’s Entrepreneurship is Growing
According to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor’s 2017/2018 report for South Africa, the country’s entrepreneurial activity is the highest it has been since 2013, with a significant increase since 2016.
In light of this, The Business Exchange is expanding its coworking office spaces from prestigious locations in Sandton, Rosebank and Morningside in Gauteng to Durban in Kwa-Zulu Natal. It has recently opened offices in Mauritius and will soon be extending its brand into Ghana, north-east Africa.

All office spaces offered by The Business Exchange also provide tenants with virtual workspace, if they are not yet ready to take the step from a home-based business to a formal office, but yet still require a formal business address and professional reception services.
