If you are a freelancer or entrepreneur looking for an office to buy or rent, we know that you are searching for a stress-free and cost-effective solution. And a coworking space may be the answer.

How does coworking work ?

The Hive, your coworking space in Montreal, tells you more about it.

What is a coworking space?

More and more popular, a coworking space is a shared office space where freelancers and entrepreneurs can lease a desk or a private office for the short or long term; or where they can simply come and work just for one day.

This solution offers more flexibility, reduces fixed expenses and is perfect for networking.

Moreover, coworking spaces are usually well located and very accessible for your customers, teammates and yourself.

It is just your desk for a day. This solution is perfect if you come occasionally.

Dedicated desk

It is your permanent desk but in an open space. This is the perfect membership if you do not necessarily need a private office but a place to come daily. Plus, you can easily connect with other businesses.

Private closed offices

It is a closed and private office that welcomes from 1-2 people to 6-8 people. It’s a better option for a team or for people who need more private spaces.

Everything you need to work

For example, The Hive offers secured and high-speed internet, printers, modern desks and ergonomics chairs, conference rooms and even an event space if you want to celebrate.
