We’ve all heard about humble beginnings of big companies. There are numerous inspirational stories of a visionary founder who started his company from a basement or a garage, then found a business partner and with sheer effort and luck went on to conquer the world.
All these stories are hugely motivating; however, one needs to understand that it is alright to run a business from a small place like a basement or a garage in the initial days. But at some point, every business needs to change its place of operation from small to a bigger one. It is not possible to always meet the clients at the coffee shop or restaurants. Working from home also comes with its own set of distractions like family, TV etc.
Coworking office spaces provide an answer to these and offer a lot more. They are particularly advantageous for startups. Why do we say that? Read further and you too would agree with us.
Money is one of the biggest concerns for a startup. Coworking spaces are ideal for such cases as they provide flexible membership options. Depending on the usage, a startup can have the space, starting from per hour to monthly basis. Rather than buying or renting a space at exorbitant rates, most startups prefer opting for coworking spaces to improve productivity as well as provide umpteen business opportunities at a very affordable price.
- Establish relationships
Most startups work in lean teams and hire freelancers. A typical coworking space would have freelancers that can help a startup in with web design, accounting, digital marketing etc. This built-in networking helps in building contacts and making a network of relationships that can become employees and members of the company as it grows and evolves.
- Client servicing
Before the clients invest their faith and money on a startup, they might want to meet the team and company. Many times, a new startup can miss on exciting opportunities owing to lack of office space or meeting at a not-so-professional space like a coffee shop. With coworking spaces, an entrepreneur need not miss a client because of any such reason. They can meet and show the client what they have to offer in the most professional manner.
- No fret over facilities and amenities
Any business – big or small need to invest in infrastructure and amenities on their own. This becomes slightly difficult for the startup. However, a good coworking space provides you relief here with their predefined amenities and facilities in a shared environment. A new entrepreneur need not to worry about the internet connectivity, cafeteria or conference room and its setting. He/she can focus on the business, thanks to coworking spaces.
Cutting to the chase, a good coworking space is a new destination for startups. So, if you are an entrepreneur with a dream to make it big, invest in a good coworking space. We, at workings, have designed our spaces to make the shared office a new home for your startup without burdening you financially and mentally.
