Larger Coworking Operators in Como See coworking companies with multiple locations in Como
The 4th most visited city in Lombardy after Brescia, Bergamo and Milan, Como sits at the southern end of Lake Como in northern Italy. A beautiful town known for its Gothic Como Cathedral, waterfront promenade and a scenic funicular railway, its iconic media picture is that of the lakeside palatial Villa Olmo. Snuggled beneath the snow-covered Rhaetian Alps and enclosed by steep wooded hills, its lake's shorelines are peppered with mind-blowing villas and quaint ancient villages. Famous for its historical silk industry, Como is now showing a different face with coworking venues opening their doors onto its cobblestoned alleys.
Italians have a creative culture in their blood, from food to fashion, design to wine and there are plenty of innovative tech savvy souls lingering over espressos. Major tech players such as IBM and Apple are opening up new tech hubs alluding to the fact that there is loads of potential in the Italian market. The government is instigating new initiatives to make it easier for startups to "start up" in light of the fact that it has always had a reputation for being bureaucracy-heavy.
Como may not be a tech hub per se as with Turin, Milan or Rome, but it does have its locals who have no desire to move to a congested big city, plus there are the meandering globetrotters with laptops in their backpacks that linger longer than they should in this stunning area. Coworking venues are giving them the space to mingle, to connect and to collaborate in one of the most stunning Italian cities.
