Previously we reviewed several co-workings in Geneva. This time SUISSEPIC had a talk with young entrepreneurs from Zurich to discover the best places to have a desk or arrange a part-time office in a business capital of Switzerland.
We counted around 20 co-workings Zurich. Most of them are located close to the Lake or to the train station to provide mobility to the residents. There are spaces run by private owners and corporations like Regus Group. And of course you will find famous ImpactHub, which provides the chance to meet international entrepreneurial spirit in the historical part of Zurich.
Some of private co-workings have really creative names such as “Thank God, it is Monday”. The others target their audience. For example we found a women’s co-working space called Birdhaus.
Prices for a shared workplace start from CHF 5 per hour, CHF 25 per day, and CHF 360 per month.
ImpactHub is known is a worldwide community of social entrepreneurs. They count around 13,000 members and more than 800 in Zurich. In Zurich they offer six different spaces for various needs of community members and other clients. All of them are located in the heart of Zurich what makes a special atmosphere around. There are loft-style coworkings at Kratwek, Colab, Garage and Viadukt, which was the first one to be opened in Zurich. Photobastei is an art and photogallery. This inspiring place offers 1 sprint room, 1 salon and 1 event space. Best coffee you will find at Café Auer&Co at the Colab space.
