Tony Bacigalupo of New Work City on the Disruptive Rise of Coworking

The model of salaried employees working in offices is slowly shifting, says Tony Bacigalupo. And he’s accelerating that shift as mayor of New Work City, a coworking space in (you guessed it) New York City.

When he’s not coworking, Bacigalupo is out and about in the NYC tech scene helping organize meetups, Barcamps, TEDx, and Girl Develop It: low-cost technical classes for women.

Bacigalupo stopped by our SXSW #StartupLife Celebration last weekend. Below, he describes the beauty of coworking, a third alternative between corporate jobs and entrepreneurship, and boldness. Watch the video featuring Tony Bacigalupo.
