So what does co-working actually mean?
London has quickly caught on to the concept of co-working spaces. Co-working combines the flexibility of running a business from home with the benefits of working in the office. The idea originally stemmed from the US, where independent professionals needed a place where they could do their work, but were not in a financial position to take on a lease. Co-working spaces are ideal for start-up businesses, freelancers and small enterprises who wish to have the atmosphere of working in an office, but don’t want to be tied into a long lease. It’s also great to have a professional space you can bring clients to for meetings, rather than entertaining clients and giving pitches in your local coffee shop!
At idea space, we provide a creative and dynamic co-working space. We aim to create a community of like-minded individuals, who can accelerate and achieve their business goals together. A short distance from Clapham Junction, we are ideally located for professionals based in South West London, who don’t want to waste their time commuting to central, when it can be better spent focussed on growing their business.
So, what are the other benefits of working in a co-working space?
Dr. Ainural Rosli, a Team Coach and Senior Lecturer at the University of Westminster, highlights the importance of collaborating, networking and using each other’s knowledge and ideas. Rosli reflects on the necessity of being open-minded, flexible and adaptable in the business world. Studies also show that employees are more ambitious and productive when surrounded by other innovative professionals from different businesses. At idea space, we not only provide the right atmosphere to develop your ideas, but allow you to network and help your business grow by organising networking events that allow you to share, collaborate and achieve with others.
At idea space we recognise the increasing needs for flexible work spaces.
We combine hot-desks for individuals, small and large meeting rooms, conference rooms and even boast a private cinema room. We offer fixed spaces which are available for those who would prefer a permanent spot for their business. Not to forget the all inclusive fuel (tea, coffee, sweets and treats) required to help you keep those ideas flowing.
