The present chapter explores the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the several typologies of coworking spaces considering the existing business models (profit and non-profit making); besides a discussion is developed about whether and how the “nature” of these working spaces has been undermined by the pandemic, and which measures have been undertaken by the coworking managers to confront the during and after the pandemic situations. The paper reports the description of three webinar interviews with coworking managers and policy makers and argues the possibilities of re-thinking the during- and post-pandemic coworking spaces. In addition, future trends for the coworking business model and its location dynamics are discussed, and policy implications aiming to face the rise of remote working are put forward.
