StartUp Office Space

How do I find office space for my startup?

Entrepreneurship, as a concept, has changed considerably over the past 20 years. Up to the early 2000s, an entrepreneur was, generally, a local business person or a rarefied inventor and/or leader of a vast business empire.

Since then we have had increased awareness of many successful high-profile entrepreneurs due to the success stories of Google, Facebook, Uber, Airbnb, and countless others in Silicon Valley, Silicon Alley, Silicon Glen, Fen, and all the other hubs.

These success stories, combined with an increasing level of uncertainty in the conventional job market have led to more and more people opting to make entrepreneurship their career.

The support infrastructure has improved massively also, sure there were always business books, autobiographies and maybe the occasional documentary to support an entrepreneur but there wasn’t the ecosystem that we have in place today.

There were, of course, business management courses but these tended to guide students within a business rather than help them start one up, and courses that did focus on entrepreneurship were very few and far between. Twenty years ago many people were actively discouraged from enrolling on a BA or MBA course that focused on entrepreneurship due to the belief that one cannot ‘be taught entrepreneurship’, however, what these courses did, and now do in their thousands, was provide and hone the tools and skills needed to start up a business whether those are understanding accounting and legal regulations, pitching skills, marketing methodology, human resource management, time management, strategy, navigating through various rounds of funding and so on.

What resources are available for startups?

Further to the educational resources available to entrepreneurs and startups today, we have incubators and accelerator programs such as StartupGrind, Techstars and Virgin StartUp, there are funding platforms for creative projects such as Kickstarter, crowdfunding sources for other types of projects including Indiegogo, Crowdfunder and Seedrs.

There are gig-economy platforms such as UpWork and Fiverr for freelancers, there are massive online startup communities in places including Instagram, Facebook, and resources such as Foundr and Entrepreneur magazine.

We understand entrepreneurship and the startup process – whether you are a tech or a creative startup, a service-lead collaboration, a new law partnership, a non-profit, or any other type of startup, we speak your language and understand your flexible office and workspace requirements.
