The idea of being a freelancer and working from home may sound like a dream come true to many, but sometimes it's not all it's cracked up to be. Finding motivation when working solo can be difficult and things can get a little lonely. Jumping on the collaborative consumption bandwagon, London-based startup Deskcamping is lending a helping hand by connecting freelancers looking for a temporary space in which to work with businesses that have desks to spare.
It's a win-win situation - solo freelancers get the chance to be around other like-minded creative souls while businesses have the opportunity to rent out extra space that isn't being used. Those offering the office space also benefit from the influx of talented people with fresh skill sets and quite often, new partnerships are formed between the two sides.
Deskcamping is more than just an online free-desk scheme, it's a community for freelancers to connect and find a working environment that suits them within the framework of mutual respect and generosity.
