CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

Coworking spaces are considered as a new form of work organisation without hierarchical relations and a priori without common objectives between members. However, in these third places, many occasional and informal but also organized social interactions are developing. In addition, the openness, socialization and knowledge-sharing characteristics of this type of place could be conducive to creativity. This article proposes to study how coworking spaces promote coworkers' creativity. Based on a unique case study, La Cordée, the results highlight three components that support creativity in a coworking space: the work environment, events and tools, and the members’ mindset.JEL Codes: L20, M13, O31
