The infrastructure of Yerevan coworking spaces has grown significantly over the past 2-3 years, and now the variety of Yerevan coworking spaces has only a positive effect on the life and work efficiency of freelancers and remote workers, whose number, by the way, is growing in parallel with the growth of technology and innovation companies in Armenia.
When did the first coworking appear?
First applied in 2005 in the United States, coworking is a shared working space with all the necessary equipment for multiple people to work simultaneously. Ten years later, the model was adopted in Armenia, gaining more popularity day by day. Our observations showed that the first coworking in Yerevan was the place called Aeon. First, it was located in Teryan street, now it’s moved to Bayron street.
Who are the customers of coworking spaces?
Today, the main driving force of coworking popularity is the rising number of IT professionals, freelancers, and remote workers. The remote model started going viral after the global pandemic when we were all locked up at home. After the pandemic, many companies kept a remote-first working model advising the teams to work from home or in coworking spaces. Thousands of professionals started looking for a suitable place to work, chill, and socialize. Long story short, the demand determined supply, and now we have close to 100 coworking spaces.

Why do we love coworking spaces?
Of course, you can always run into a random cafe with your laptop, put on your headphones, and work for a couple of hours, but you may be distracted by other guests and waiters running back and forth. You can also stay at home and work from the comfort of your home, but there is a good chance you will be distracted even more with kids (if there are such) and pets (if there are such).
If you don’t have kids or pets, you will definitely be distracted by regular visits to the fridge to check how it is going and what you can have for a quick snack. Believe me, I was in lockdown for three months, and I know how it feels like working from home. While a coworking space has an ideal balance, it is not an office with strict rules and is not your house. Coworking is perfect for meetings, calls, working comfortably, and even procrastinating.
