Some people do not want to settle with an 8 to 12-hour desk-bound job, just facing their laptops or computers all day.
But with the rise of ‘digital nomad’, people are increasingly doing their work remotely at home, cafés, or at co-working spaces.
But given that rental is usually a cost many startups try to avoid in their early days, they tend to utilise these public spaces before slowly moving to a private office space.
Here are some of the best co-working spaces around the Metro that have great ambience, comfort, and office perks:
Founded by four individuals, Acceler8 is designed to emulate a professional setting where members can maximise productivity and network with one another.
This co-working space has a common area and mini-office spaces for rent to those who want to have their own private space. It also hosts different fun activities weekly so you can bond and socialise with other co-workers in the office.
Members also get to access their other V-Office Centres around the Metro. Not only that, they will get a privilege card that gives you offers and discounts from different restaurants, hotels, bars, and more.

Like Acceler8, it also hosts weekly events like “Mission Mondays,” which feature lectures and seminars geared towards startups and entrepreneurs.
