Millennials no longer topdog in coworking environments, age demographic shifting

Coworking spaces are no longer a young person’s game. Peter Mayne, a 70-year-old serial entrepreneur and founder of Mayne Capital, is now running his $1.5 million company from the comfort of a shared workspace in Sydney.

“I just like the whole ambience of this establishment. You can basically walk in the door, open your briefcase and start straight away,” Mayne says.

Mayne has a history of office management and is taking advantage of how accessible shared work spaces are compared to offices of yesteryear.
