Keep up to date about the coworking movement
Coworking spaces offer space, furniture and resources so that coworkers can work, but also include Internet access, electricity, cleaning, heating or air conditioning and other running costs. They also organise professional meetups, courses, breakfast get-togethers or talks that promote synergies and the growth of the professionals that work there. To this end, a coworking space is much more than renting a desk or rendering a service. That's why it is difficult to regulate coworking because it encompasses several types of business activity that do not have their own regulation.
In recent years, **the coworking movement has broadened**; there are more and more spaces, which reach an increasingly wider community and have attracted investments of around $1bn in the last year. This has undoubtedly helped the concept be progressively more "in trend" and the number of medium-sized and large companies interested in the ins and outs of the model is on the rise. As a result, there are also more events and training programmes aimed at promoting collaboration in professional working environments.

In this article, we have the collaboration of [Jaime Aranda](http://www.jaimearanda.com/ "") who is the cofounder of workINcompany, the first coworking space in Andalusia (Spain). Running more than four years of a coworking space, Aranda offers his insights on the signals that may show whether your coworking space is working well, or if you should reconsider some features of your coworking space.
