What Are Coworking Spaces And Why Do They Work

logoOur real estate company office is located in a coworking space in the Mercato and we love the ambience and location.  VentureX is the first of its kind in Naples and is already expanding due to overwhelming demand.  We have a private office in the corner of a large open work space that houses many different types of businesses.  From our real estate company, to lawyers, web designers, advertising and many more, there is no end to the type of business that can benefit from this shared workspace.

What Are The Benefits Of Coworking?

  • Relatively inexpensive compared to renting a whole building for a small business.
  • Shared receptionist so someone is available from 9 to 5 weekdays.
  • Conference rooms that can be rented on an as needed basis.
  • Opportunity to meet other small business owners and learn new tricks.
  • Wifi and fax services.

The western regional vice president with flexible workspace provider Regus, Sande Golgart, puts it this way:

“It’s a natural evolution of technology.  It’s a blend of technology and people getting smarter about getting efficient use out of their space.  Nowadays people don’t necessarily need a landline all the time that’s plugged into a wall that they have to go to and sit in front of every single day.  Nowadays an office worker can be mobile and an on-the-go entrepreneur would simply be wasting money by paying for a full time office.”

He goes on to say, “From a basic economic standpoint, the largest pool of demand for office space is the small customer or small group.  You have a much larger pool looking for small office solutions than you do large groups looking for an entire building or an entire floor.”

The Future Of Coworking

We did not realize when we found VentureX and signed up for an office that we were on the cutting edge of the coworking wave.  The company had only been open for a couple of months when we joined at the beginning of November.  Now, they are already expanding and adding small private offices as these have proved the most popular.

Co-founder of another workspace provider Gangplank, Derek Neighbors states, “I think that this movement is teaching not only individual freelancers a lot but is teaching corporate America a lot about how people interact, what makes them effective at creation and is really defining the future of how companies interact with each other on a deeper level.”

Stop by any time and see our office at VentureX.  It is a beautiful, clean, very modern work environment and we are proud to call it the home of ToastyinNaples.com Realty!  Call first as I am one of those mobile entrepreneurs always on the road, 239-601-3174.

Remember, it is always toasty in Naples and you deserve your piece of Naples sunshine even in your workspace!
