5 Ways a Coworking Space Will Fuel Your Startup's Growth
Starting a new business can be hard work. There’s so much to consider: if and when to hire, marketing plans, office space. The list seems endless. It’s difficult to know how to make your often limited budget stretch to all the things you need.
It’s no wonder then that around half of small businesses in the US are based from home. At least that sorts out the question of office space, right?
Except that most homes aren’t really geared up to replace an office environment. Sitting on the sofa might seem cool at first, but after a week or two, it’s terrible news for your back.
If you’re lucky enough to have separate office space inside your home with decent furniture, it still doesn’t remove the inevitable distractions from family members and pets. Plus, it’s still lonely.
Luckily, there’s a great solution in the form of coworking spaces. They’re the perfect blend of flexibility and cost-effectiveness for any startup.
Here are our top 5 ways a coworking space can not only meet your office space needs, but also fuel your growth.
Coworking Spaces Provide Effortless Networking Opportunities
Networking. It’s something all entrepreneurs and busy professionals know they should do, but it can be a nerve-wracking and time-consuming experience if you’re not a social butterfly by nature.
Coworking spaces are full of other busy professionals, so they’re the perfect place to network. You never know who might become your next client or customer, or who might have some expertise that you need.
The communal break areas are the perfect place to strike up conversation naturally, no awkward ‘elevator pitch’ introduction needed!
Coworking Spaces are the Ideal 'Plug-and-Play' Business Environment
Compared to coffee shops or your home, working from a coworking space is incredibly easy. You just turn up, turn on your laptop and you’re ready to go!
With most coworking spaces you get complimentary Wi-Fi and shared printers and photocopiers. There’s also usually staff on hand to help you get setup and productive.
It’s way easier than trying to find a free power socket at the local coffee shop or trying to think above the chatter of casual coffee shop users.
Coworking Spaces Allow You To Grow Organically
When it’s time for your startup to grow and your team builds, coworking spaces are flexible enough that you can all work from the same one. Want something more private than a hot desk? Most coworking spaces also offer private office space if you feel like your startup needs it. It’s still flexible and very cost-effective compared to leasing traditional office space. Plus, you don’t need to commit to a long-term lease.
Your workforce can ebb and flow as your business grows, and with a coworking space, you can increase or decrease the space you need very easily. It is workspace-as-a-service.
Coworking Spaces Have All the Extras of An Office Without the Price Tag
Coworking spaces have all the conveniences of an office. They have modern office furniture, reception, printers, beverages, meeting rooms and more. Everything you could possibly need, all under one roof.
Yet you don’t have to worry about taking on an expensive inflexible lease, hiring a cleaner, fixing a printer jam, worrying about milk for your coffee, or any of the other tasks associated with leasing traditional office space.
