Home might be where the heart is, but you might need a more professional environment to host meetings or hone your business plans. Or you might just want a change of surroundings and the chance to meet new people.

From the Southside to Downtown, Pittsburgh has a variety of coworking options for remote employees or founders who need a space to get things done.

Many are locally owned. Some have a concentration on community, some on building a business, others on creation of goods. There are also a handful of desk and office options run by large umbrella companies, which come with reciprocal membership around the globe.

Check them out on this map, then scroll down for a summary of amenities and pricing.
