Cowork spaces are becoming a trademark in Lisbon, following the popularity of the concept in Europe and in the US, incorporating all the innovations you can expect.
You can almost find them in every corner and Nomad is out there to find the best in town and tell you all about it. While some are already established as references in the city, others are still the new kid in the block. Nevertheless, there’s one thing uniting them: they all have the potential to accommodate the 21st century entrepreneur.
