With the boom of small businesses and startups all around Australia, it's no wonder that co-working spaces are more popular than ever.

Newcastle is blessed with a wide choice of co-working hubs which offer small businesses an affordable office space and the invaluable experience of meeting likeminded people.

Here are three co-working spaces making a difference in Newcastle.

The Roost Creative

152-160 Hunter Street

Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2020, The Roost is Newcastle's oldest co-working space – and also its most affordable. Catering primarily to creatives, The Roost helps Newcastle creatives and startups grow their businesses in a supportive, social work environment.

As part of its commitment to launching Newcastle talent, The Roost runs an annual scholarship program to help one burgeoning local creative turn their passion into a sustainable business.

Crown Street Studio

4 Crown Street

Opening in 2018, Crown Street Studio is one of the city's newer co-working spaces.

Unlike many other co-working offices which cultivate high membership volumes, Crown Street Studio is a boutique space with a limit of 10 members. This selectivity creates a more focused working environment with minimal distractions and background noise.

I2N Hub

376 Hunter Street

Started by The University of Newcastle (although no affiliation is needed to become a member), I2N Hub wants to help take innovation to the next level.

Beyond providing a co-working space, I2N runs regular programs and courses to help develop businesses and ideas. No matter what stage a startup is at, I2N has programs and connections to help advance its journey.
