The age old saying, ‘new year, new you’ rings true as entrepreneurs are more likely to start a business in January more than any other month. With increased numbers expected to register their new business ideas in the new year, entrepreneurs continue to make ‘building a business’ their new year’s resolution.
As the job market continues to be increasingly fragmented and start-ups and small businesses boom, many workers are now escaping the commitments of working for an established company altogether and opting for starting up their own business.
If you’re thinking of starting a business or want to change your work pattern and enter the world of flexible co-working, then look no further than Allia Future Business Centres.
Here we explain how you can keep your start-up costs down and how we can support you in the early days:
A virtual office – keeping your start-up costs low
Thanks to digital you really can work from anywhere with smart phones, laptops and free Wi-Fi, but there is still value to be added by maintaining a professional base, and that’s where a virtual office can help. A virtual office is a good place to build a start-up.
Cost efficiency – Nothing beats having a virtual office when it comes to cost efficiency, (well, nothing except starting in your garden shed or home office of course!). It bridges the gap between home-based working and professional premises, bringing the best of both worlds with minimal cost. Another benefit is that you don’t have to worry about investing in furniture or other equipment!
Professional business address – image is everything in today’s competitive market. There are hundreds of start-ups established every day, so staying ahead of the competition requires more than just a good product or service offering, maintaining a strong professional image is so important.
Additional services – As well as a prestigious business address, virtual offices come with a whole host of additional services including professional mail handling and phone answering and free use of meeting rooms, giving you the opportunity to meet clients in a professional, stylish environment.
Along with the standard benefits you’d expect from a virtual office, by becoming an Allia Future Business virtual tenant, you join a community of like-minded people – working amongst businesses committed to making change.
Enjoy the flexibility of co-working
To help keep start-up costs low, our centres offer shared workspace for entrepreneurs, start-ups, and small businesses where you can just plug in and work. Co-working is a working trend that is here to stay with numbers of co-working spaces continuing to grow worldwide. It offers immense flexibility, productivity and reduced costs compared to taking on a permanent office.
Here at our Future Business Centres, we place an emphasis on the importance of community. Perhaps this is why our members tend to stick around! We attract a unique network of businesses, and because of our not-for-profit status and foundation of impact businesses, our members care about similar issues, which creates a community of like-minded people who enjoy being around each other.
Our co-working packages are flexible and affordable – so you can work the way that suits you and your business best.
From 1 day a week to a dedicated desk 24/7, whatever package you choose, you will be surrounded by like-minded individuals all focused on building their businesses and creating impact. Within our dynamic business centres, you will get the opportunity to meet and network with the wider community of tenants and partners – to share ideas, advice and contacts.
Flexible workspace that helps your start-up grow
Wanting something more permanent than co-working? We offer a range of different types of spaces available on easy in, easy out terms with workspace that can accommodate growing teams.
If you’re thinking of setting up on your own or looking for a new way of working then look no further than Allia Future Business Centre who will give you the flexibility and support you need for your start-up to grow and thrive.
