Abstract: With the growth of the sharing economy, coworking became a phenomenon of global interest. As the number of coworking spaces are increasing in world’s leading metropoles, the new smart look of cities also reflects on the changing image of working practices. Acknowledging the concurrently trending literature about the topic, the aim of this research is twofold: first, to classify the related themes and theories that explore the contingencies of coworking spaces and coworking through a systematic literature review and second, to propose a research agenda about the subject in order to highlight directions for future research. The methodology covers a bibliometric literature analysis of 51 existing articles from academic journals. This process is performed on the extracted data of contingencies, underpinning theories, and methodological details between the constructs from the collected articles based on coworking and entrepreneurship. The research contributes to the literature by developing a model that includes the adoption of basic theories from field of entrepreneurship, after establishing a comprehensive review of dominant analogies suggested so far. The findings of this research provide an agenda for future studies in terms of methodology, context and theoretical framework. Practical implications obtained from this study will help to build connections to reframe alternative transitions from sharing economy and to tackle the disruptive social and economic dimensions of this crisis, with an optimistic entrepreneurial focus.
