The days of struggling to rent, build or own traditional offices before starting a business are dying fast. Indeed, availability of co-working spaces has made it possible for many small and medium businesses to kick off and run efficiently.
Asides the workspace offered, other basic needs such as electricity and internet are often inclusive of their payment packages. Needless to say, the benefits of co-working spaces cannot be over-emphasised. This could be a pointer to why most incubation hubs in Nigeria also offer co-working spaces as part of their incubation plans.
