Coworking Visa Participation Annouced

Office Divvy LLC. a Palm Coast (Flagler County), Florida based provider of Office and Coworking Space, announces participation in the Worldwide Co-Working Visa program, which allows the use of other participating coworking spaces during travel.

“Coworking” is expected to be major trend in the United States, Europe, and Latin America in 2010 with the growing number of people working from home and home-based business owners.
