Audiobooks are an immersive form of content that has exploded in popularity in recent years. Unlike e-books or physical books, you don’t have to find time to sit and read. Instead, you can listen to it and be entertained while you do chores, drive or commute. Authors also benefit from having their work turned into audiobooks, as this helps them find new audiences and creates another income stream.
The popularity of audiobooks is such that its market is poised to grow to USD 35.05 billion by 2030. Audiobook publishers are hard at work keeping up with demand, finding new authors to finance, developing and producing titles, and distributing audiobooks globally.
Our coworking space in South Bay provides audiobook publishers with the space and amenities they need to focus on many of the tasks involved in running their businesses. In addition, the collaborative environment of our Los Angeles shared office space fosters creativity, innovation and communication.

Q: What does a typical day look like for you at Cross Campus?
A: The location of Cross Campus is everything. There is so much around the building. Food, shopping and gyms. I typically start my morning at 24-hour Fitness across the street to do a full workout.

So during lunch, I take a little walk to stretch my legs. After lunch, I come back and finish up my day, then head home.
