In the past, when your company grows and unable to fit in a small space in your living room or your garage, it is time to move out into a real office. Yet, the price is not cheap for renting a comfortable place, set up everything from decoration to operation.
In 21st century, renting an office doesn’t sound so much trouble. Actually, I think it is a new perspective to look at real estate. In stead of renting out a free space, space owners can make it become something ready-to-use for companies from as small as a start-up of one person or big companies of several to hundreds of employee. If you don’t have financial constraint and look for a great place to settle your business, Regus could be a wise choice.
Some people find that working alone at home is unable to activate their creativity. Locking yourself in front of your laptop isn’t bring new ideas to mind. Then, the concept of co-working space emerges in the time of financial recession, approximately in 2007. Independent workers, freelancers and small start-up firms are the first pioneer. They could share an open work space with others, especially like-minded people. Although they can work on different projects, occasionally communication and social hangout among co-workers in shared space might be an innovation push for them. It is a kind of social-gathering, yet people are here to work not for networking.
When the wave comes, and brings in an abundance of fish, there shall be fishermen here to take the catch. I notice some giants offering a service of office sharing and coworking space, such as Regus and Sharedesk. When choosing the former one as your partner, you can access to 1500 office centers worldwide. All you need is at a finger tip, and the only thing you have to do is to book a place and then move in. About Sharedesk, they are far more advanced to Regus as you can search and book a place through your mobile app. They help office owners to completely make use of their work space. How to differentiate two of them? Think of Regus as a formal adviser for office renting, and you can work with them online or in person. They have a varied location of offices for your choice. On the other hand, Sharedesk is a match-maker; it means that they will connect the office owners with the tenants. It is a free platform for you to reach customers globally, and they only take a small fee for making a connection.
