16 Examples of Business Communities

From Creative Community Co-ops to Community Design Websites

— October 31, 2014 — Social Good
Companies that champion social good know what they're doing when it comes to developing engaging, collaborative business communities.

These communities are specifically designed to promote entrepreneurship and interaction, both internally and externally. For instance, the Roco is a creative community co-op space that's so effective, it will no doubt be replacing typical offices in order to better encourage creativity, innovation and enthusiastic team building.

These business communities aren't limited to the physical realm, either. They can also exist, and have great benefit, online. 199Jobs, for example, is a task-outsourcing website that operates similar to Fiverr, except that it focuses on the quick and easy exchange of digital work and services. Developing tight-knit, focused business communities will soon become an integral part of any organization.
