Starting any business is not without its share of growing pains. In the past, an office consisted of phones, desks, a copier, and with any luck a fax machine. In more modern times internet capable computers would also be on the list. Let’s not forget the long hours stuck plugging away, trying to make it happen. Well, now there is better, more exciting solution.
What kind of company are you running? What are your goals? What do you think helps in productivity? Some companies thrive on that close-knit environment. That’s all well and good. This allows the boss to have a great amount of control over their business, how it’s run, and they can steer the course of their companies destiny. If they are starting off with plenty of capital, this is great. But what happens if you are not in the best position to do that? A new company being cash strapped is not unheard of.
That new and exciting solution mentioned earlier is called coworking spaces. What’s this all about? First off it’s a great way for a business to save money. What do coworking spaces have to offer? Plenty.
Instead of putting money towards renting an entire office space, rent out some desks. Instead of constantly getting office supplies and coffee, it’s all in the rental fee. Not to mention by using a coworking space, all of the maintenance will be taken care of. This is also a great way to inject some energy into your workplace. For those companies that don’t mind sharing space, they may even generate some great dynamic energy with other companies. The possibilities are endless. Can you even imagine the great creative collaborations two companies could have together?
One such coworking space is called Workville, they’re based in New York City. It’s in a luxury office building, and being in that type of environment is sure to help productivity levels soar. There’s great views, fast internet, daily cleaning, and 24-hour access to the office space. All of this for the cost of renting the space your company needs, in whichever configuration works best, sounds great.
