Coworking Spaces in Colombo

This list covers a bunch of co-working spaces around Colombo.

This list is dedicated to all you freelancers, start-ups and entrepreneurs who have stranded themselves at coffee shops and libraries because you have too much sense not to keep an entire building as an office, but still aren't aware of the concept of coworking spaces. 

To those of you who don't know what coworking spaces are, it literally means a place which has the necessary facilities of an everyday office, which people can rent out (be it a day, month or even year) and get your work done.
