‘No more noisy coffee shops’
The number of people choosing enterprise over paid for employment is increasing rapidly, as more and more people see that the barriers to starting a business are now very small. With technology enabling this, all you need now is an internet connection and a good idea. Before you needed staff, offices, equipment and the cost was usually prohibitive. However, the missing ingredient for start-ups has been the workspace options, as the current offerings require a lengthy and full-time commitment.
Therefore, most start-ups have chosen the home office and using coffee shops as a base between meetings when in town. However, for anyone who has used the coffee shop option regularly, you will know that they are less than ideal. Noisy, busy and if you need the toilet, you have to take the laptop with you and risk coming out to no seat. Alternatively you could take a serviced office, but they can be a cost you don’t need or can’t afford initially.
The other issue with home working, coffee shops and a ‘box off a corridor’ in a business centre, is that you become cut off from the buzz and interaction with like-minded business people. You miss out on valuable conversations with peers and this tends to make you feel isolated.
Now there is a choice and one that not only provides a real alternative to noisy coffee shops, but gives you access to a business community of other like-minded entrepreneurs and business people. Growing in popularity these workspace hubs provide an environment where you can work, hold meetings, share, network, collaborate and thrive.
We have just opened our first @Work Hubs location at Euston, designed specifically to cater for entrepreneurs, start-ups, SME’s, mobile workers and business people. The space offers desk space, private offices, meeting room, lounge, kitchen, lockers and collaborative space. Uniquely, as well as monthly memberships, the hub can be used and paid for by the hour as when you want and to suit your business needs.
From the hub we will be encouraging businesses to newtork and we will be hosting and offering the space as a venue for networking.
Come and see the future of workspace for yourself and enjoy our great coffee and the first hour for free.
