15 Cool Co-working Spaces in Indonesia

As startups become a hot commodity and we hear more successful stories from young startup founders, the concept of generating ideas and working without limitation of space are becoming more common in Indonesia.

In big cities like Jakarta, Surabaya, Bali, the cost of renting an office space is relatively expensive for those who have just started a business or want to develop their business ideas while keep working as a freelancer. On the other hand, working from home is considered less professional and not dynamic enough – especially when trying to sell products or services to the market.

The number of office rent facilities that support this entrepreneurial spirit is increasing due to the rising demand. Over the past two years, co-working space has become a familiar term for many of us. Here are 15 co-working spaces that you can find in several big cities nationwide:

1. Kedasi

This co-working space is located within a strategic area near popular universities, such as Universitas Trisakti and Universitas Bina Nusantara a.k.a. Binus. Not just appealing for freelancers, this space is also inviting for student gatherings. They also offer private offices with extra facilities, i.e. a dedicated line, a desktop computer, printing, etc. You can book a meeting room, use the game room, outdoor lounge, and make yourself a cup of tea or coffee at the semi-outdoor pantry. The rate is starting from Rp 30,000 per hour to Rp 1.2 million per month.
