We live, love and breathe co-working at CreativeCubes.Co, it’s in our blood. It’s still a relatively new concept in Australia though, so we’re going to define it for you.
Co-working is what you make it, and at CreativeCubes.Co, we make it pretty damn awesome.
In this guide to co-working, we’ll cover;
- What co-working is
- The benefits of co-working
- Co-working for corporates and smaller businesses
- How to choose a co-working space
- Co-working statistics
What is ‘co-working’?
Co-working is simple. It’s a balance between the independence and autonomy of freelancing, and the structure and community of being in an office, all rolled into a big happy communal space.
It is also flexible, so whether you’re a fin-tech giant who needs a boardroom for a big day of numbers and strong conversations, or a start-up looking to spread your wings and move out of the lounge room, co-working is flexible enough to do both.
If you’re a social butterfly or a creative type that feeds off the energy in the room, you’ll be right at home with hot-desk or a roaming membership to soak up the good vibes and the buzzing atmosphere.
If you prefer to knuckle down in the zone for three hours and then breakout in a communal space over lunch, you’ll be able to do both with a private office. That’s the best part about co-working at CreativeCubes.Co; you’ve got options, it’s flexible, and you’ve got the atmosphere you need when you need it.
What are the benefits of co-working?
Besides the benefit of flexibility, co-working is never dry & dull and you’ll never be lonely.
Setting up an office on your own can be an expensive exercise but walking into a CreativeCubes.Co is like walking into Christmas lunch every day without having to lift a finger. You’ll have to run your business of course, but we do the rest for you; the space, the cleaning, the electricity bills, sparkling water, fresh fruit, Internet, the front desk, the mail room… It’s all on tap, ready for you.
Great business-building opportunities are always present and when you’re surrounded by good people doing good things, the potential for collaboration and shared success – is big!
Does size matter?
Nope, not to us. CreativeCubes.Co might be a cost-effective option for start-ups, but it’s not just a concept for small businesses.
Large corporations and enterprises like Uber have co-working desks here, and we’re home to hundreds of different companies of all sizes (SMB / SME), from one lone ranger to private offices of 20.
It doesn’t matter what size your business is or how many desks you need, co-working for corporates and small businesses alike promotes innovation, growth and community as well as easily scaling up and down with the needs of your business seamlessly.
Is co-working right for me?
In the right co-working space, you’re surrounded by like-minded entrepreneurs, business owners, CEOs, creative geniuses and all-round awesomeness who celebrate each other’s success and share in the business-building journey.
If you’re open to opportunity, if you enjoy the occasional dog in the office, and if you’re ready to up-level your business game, CreativeCubes.Co is the best co-working space for you.
If you’ve got the drive to succeed, the passion, the power and the ideas, we’ve got the perfect space and a supportive community ready and waiting for you.
