As complicated and stressful as working in Lagos is, there are some people and organisations who are doing their best to change the perspective and narrative of everyday work-life. One of such people are those who run co-working spaces. Don’t know what a co-working space is? Well, they are those beautiful work offices where different people can use for their work meetings and work while cutting out some necessary business bills like rent, electricity and internet bills. All a business owner or entrepreneur needs to do is register with one of such co-working spaces and voila! you have an office complete with an office address to work from. Here are some of such co-working spaces in the different parts of Lagos for you to take advantage of.
