What is the right space for you?

For entrepreneurs, time is one of the most important assets – it can’t be wasted or mismanaged and it often seems that everyone needs more of it.  Founders who are looking to grow their businesses and add team members might not have the time to find the right space to fit their needs. Or they might be debating the differences between a coworking space and a standalone office space, which both have their benefits and drawbacks.  

 

Finding the right office space can take significant time away from growing your business, although it shouldn’t.  We’re excited to have a new partnership with 1776 and collaborate with its members.  As the members take advantage of the resources and programs that 1776 offers, many of the startup founders continue to grow, scale and thrive – and in turn, they need more space.  That’s where we come in.

 

Our partnership will allow 1776 members to take advantage of our AI-enabled platform to find, tour and lease space right from their mobile devices or laptops.  Entrepreneurs can benefit from incubators and flexible work environments, like 1776, because they are surrounded by like-minded individuals who are striving for the similar goals of building and growing their businesses.  Entrepreneurs appreciate the personal attention given and sense of community, ability to engage with other startup founders, educational classes, and access to a dynamic network — all of the benefits 1776 members receive.  

Flexible work spaces also allow entrepreneurs to work in a welcoming, collaborative space without having the confines of a long lease.  These spaces are move-in ready, complete with office furniture and other amenities. For startups that are scaling rapidly and experiencing significant growth, they will likely need to hire new team members and design a flexible workspace that can grow with them.  Flexible workspaces make it easy to add additional offices or transition into a larger space.

For entrepreneurs and founders who are debating if more traditional office space or flexible space is the right fit, our platform allows you to compare the differences of each and see all the rental costs upfront.  We also save entrepreneurs time – they can find, tour and lease an office or flexible workspace in half the amount of time that is normally expected.  How does it really save that much time? The archaic way of finding commercial office space was by visiting each and every spot to tour it in person.  Fortunately, that’s changed and our platform removes that hurdle where you can compare your options all in one place. You can find and tour a space conveniently through our 3D tours, which you can take right from your laptop or mobile device.  We also have a chatbot named “Vera” who takes the entrepreneur through each step and shares the specs.

Ideally, entrepreneurs and startup founders should feel inspired when they look for the right space for their small business.  It shouldn’t be a chore and the process should be as seamless as possible – so the entrepreneurs can return to their priorities – growing their businesses.
