Whether you are a startup trying to gain a foothold or an established business looking to expand your operations, having an ideal office space is paramount. Your ideal office space should cater to your unique needs and also make financial sense. Traditionally, the best alternative would have been to build your own offices or to enter into an extended lease contract. However, the rising costs of having such spaces coupled with advancements in technology have led to new, better alternatives – shared office space and shared Coworking space. Although these two concepts share the same ideology, they differ in application.
Coworking space is a service typically offered to small businesses, as well as individuals, to simultaneously have access to office facilities as a better alternative to working from home or coffee shops. In general, Coworking spaces have an open plan layout and not tied to a particular location. These spaces are ideal for freelancers and startups that are just starting out and trying to get their name out there. They offer entrepreneurs an affordable avenue to network and collaborate with like-minded people as well as a professional environment that spurs productivity.
Shared office space, on the other hand, is a service typically offered to established businesses to access office facilities under a flexible and affordable plan that does not tie them down to extended contracts. Unlike Coworking spaces, shared office spaces are generally housed in serviced business centres. In addition to getting flexible and affordable office space, these businesses also get access to other business solutions such as photocopying services, internet connection, coffee machine, break rooms, office receptionists, private and virtual offices as well as other additional services at an extra cost.
For most businesses, these two alternatives are a flexible means of having an ideal working environment with an option to upgrade at any time or hire facilities such as meeting rooms and board rooms on a need basis. Although the way coworking office spaces are currently operating makes them ideal for startups, while shared office spaces are currently ideal for established businesses, nothing can stop any business from using either alternative.
If you have never considered the advantages of shared office space, you may be surprised by how much this arrangement can benefit your business. Companies of all sizes and stages of development can benefit from having access to a brick-and-mortar space, even if the bulk of your business activity is completed online.

Low Overhead : The process of finding, leasing, furnishing, Renovating & improving your own space as well as selecting & buying the necessary technology is not easy. It requires a significant investment of both time and money. You want to keep costs low yet maintain the focus on durability, functionality, and aesthetics.
