Winston-Salem has a new place for entrepreneurs and freelancers to work. It's called Flywheel. WFDD contributor Justin Catanoso writes about the concept of collaborative work spaces like Flywheel in his column this week in the Triad Business Journal.

According to a recent Gallup survey, about one-third of the U.S. employees operate outside the traditional confines of office towers, cubicles or factories. In other words, one in three American workers don’t have a traditional place to work.

“Collaborative work spaces like Flywheel are wide open. You can rent by the hour, you can rent by the day, you can rent by the month, but there is no commitment, so this is really the difference between the kind of space in traditional office space that we have for freelancers and these new collaborative work spaces,” says Catanoso.
