The first co-working space in Shanghai now has more than 20 spaces around China and is focusing on segmentation to meet its member’s specialized needs. People Squared are planning to launch co-working spaces for musicians, food startups, and content creators.

Last week, we looked at seven co-working spaces in Shanghai, mostly born in 2015 along with the boom of co-working spaces in China. With its first space in 2010, People Squared became home for Shanghai’s startup accelerator Chinaccelerator and maker space Xinchejian (新车间). While other co-working spaces are busy building their next spot in notoriously high-priced Shanghai, People Squared is moving towards vertical segmentation in music, content, and food.

In Beijing, People Squared M (M for music and movie) will be created in a joint effort with Baidu Yinyue and Taihe Music Group, China’s largest music group. The space dedicated for musicians will have a live house and recording room, and the equipment that they require. This is only the start of what People Squared has in mind for their future expansion.
