A company based in Australia is offering virtual memberships to entrepreneurs and startups to its co-working office hub. Fishburners has actual co-working offices in Sydney, Brisbane and Shanghai. But for $29 a month, entrepreneurs can access a virtual programme. This lets them connect online with a co-working community, receive a newsletter, gain access to lectures and events, and (for premium members who pay $20 a month more) use Fishburners’ physical co-working spaces once a month.

The idea is to support startups in more remote areas by giving them access to a larger networking community. Of the 100 startups that purchased a virtual membership during a pilot programme, about half lived in suburbs and 35 percent were in rural communities.
