Entrepreneurs and remote workers are driving the need for co-working spaces where you can rent a desk, or a few, for a growing business.

In the Milwaukee area, a handful of new co-working spaces have opened in the past year dedicated to entrepreneurs, women business owners and water technology. The number of co-working spaces worldwide has more than doubled in the past three years, according to an Emergent Research report. The small business research firm predicts the number of co-working spaces worldwide will double again by 2022. Whether you’re turning a side hustle into a full-time gig or you’re a digital nomad who needs to get out of the house, here are some co-working spaces around Milwaukee.
