Whether you’re freelancing, launching a startup, or running an existing business, Rio is a lively location to grow your venture. And one of the most effective ways to expand in the city is through collaboration.
Rich in culture and connection, Rio’s powerful economy supports new and established teams in everything from finance and trade to tourism and the arts—and coworking spaces are where all these professionals come together. Startups find new partners, existing teams source fresh talent, entrepreneurs land additional clients—all because they’re working together in one vibrant, thoughtfully designed shared workspace.
Collaboration aside, shared workspaces also provide flexibility for businesses to grow and expand according to their own needs. This happens without the commitment of long-term leases and traditional office space overhead costs.
WeWork is, by far, one of the most prominent providers of coworking space in Rio and consistently offers a range of amenities at all of their locations. Such amenities include onsite office staff, fully stocked kitchens, creative brainstorming conference rooms, bike storage space, and onsite refreshments. Many WeWork offices also include recreational facilities, professional development services, and more.
