With the world slowly returning to normal, here are 5 coworking brands for startups and SMEs to consider.

At the height of the pandemic, with worldwide lockdowns rampant, the near future looked quite bleak for companies operating in the coworking sector. 

Fast-forward to mid-2021, the business world is now much more accustomed to the “next normal,” especially given the wide-scale vaccination campaigns currently ongoing, and these companies are breathing a sigh of relief.

Here are 5 noteworthy coworking spaces in Abu Dhabi that you should consider for your business. 

1. WeWork

A list of coworking spaces wouldn’t be complete without a mention of WeWork, one of the top innovators in the industry.

WeWork launched in the UAE in February of 2020, partnering with Hub71 in Abu Dhabi. It offers collaborative and flexible workspaces, including over 1,200 desks and light-filled lounges. 

Given its strategic location at Hub71, a thriving tech ecosystem in the emirate, WeWork’s offices allow tenants to be present at the heart of Abu Dhabi’s tech innovation drive, opening up networking opportunities with entrepreneurs, startups and other business professionals.

Amenities provided include high-speed Wi-Fi, enhanced cleaning services, enhanced HVAC standards, professional and social events, and more.

  • AED 25 per person for a daily pass

Moving away from international firms for a moment, our next company is WitWork, a UAE-headquartered coworking brand founded in 2018. 

Equipped with knowledge of the local and regional markets, WitWork operates a bit differently than the previous 2 entries. WitWork collaborates with existing outlets - restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, and pubs - reviving overlooked areas that don’t receive much footfall. This lean business model makes it easy for WitWork to expand to newer venues at a faster pace. 

Amenities for WitWork members include plenty of seats and power plugs to stay connected, fast, reliable and secure high speed Wi-Fi, free coffee & discounts on F&B, discounts on meeting room bookings, various community events and networking opportunities, and more.
