Why Startups Are Moving to Coworking Spaces

Some of the best characters in literature and film have a tremendous origin story – something they have in common with great startups: Most of us have heard the (somewhat accurate) story about how Apple, for example, humbly began in a garage, or how “The Facebook” concept began in the dorms of Harvard University. Now, coworking spaces have become the preferred home base for startups like Uber, Instagram, and a variety of other fledgling and successful small businesses – not bad company! If you’re a startup in search of office space or are looking into the kind of office rental space that startup companies thrive in, Venture X Charlotte-The Refinery might just be the place for you.

We’re proud to be part of the origin story for startups and entrepreneurs across an array of industries, including freelancers, small businesses, individual professionals, and even remote teams and corporations. 

 What Makes Our Coworking Office Space for Startups Stand Out in Charlotte

So, why do coworking office spaces so often become the office rental startups choose to make their home base?

●      Flexible terms and leases: With Venture X, there are never long-term leases or tricky terms, and this flexibility means you’ll be able to nimbly add team members and grow into a larger space when needed without breaking existing terms. And with our anywhere memberships, you can reach out for temporary space and local connections when you travel elsewhere for work.

●      Simplicity: With a Venture X coworking space, you can book a tour or even simply show up, select the membership solution that fits your needs – a shared desk, a private office, even a meeting room or event space – and complete some simple paperwork. As long as you have a device or a laptop with you, you can reasonably be ready to get to work in your new space within a few minutes. Everything you need is included from the start – the space, the desk, the chair, even a cup of coffee – and there’s no utilities or network/WiFi to research, schedule, set up, or wait for.

●      Shared space expertise: Quality coworking spaces are created for the purpose of helping others get their work done. Our hospitality-trained on-site staff is always available to help you decide on a configuration that will meet your current and future needs, along with tech support and much more. Our location has been thoughtfully designed with options that include dedicated work zones, dedicated communal areas (like the lobby, lounge, or cafe), and an overall professional environment that you’ll be proud to work in and show off to prospects, clients, and others.

●      Networking in our offices: One of the most valuable elements of a high-quality coworking space is the ability to collaborate and network in real time and meet other like-minded professionals pursuing their dreams and growing their business. We’re thrilled that an ancillary and legitimate benefit can be leads and referrals, and with a Venture X coworking space membership, we also offer monthly member-only community programming that includes all sorts of continuing education, wellness, and other great topics.

●      Amenities and cleaning: Coworking office spaces provide a range of amenities – ours include 24/7 secure access, high-tech meeting rooms, high-speed internet, even podcast studios – and all Venture X locations have a dedicated on-site friendly support team staff that ensure people get the most out of their memberships. Our cafes offer unlimited water and coffee every day, we have expert janitorial services with stringent standards, and we even provide mail and package services. And for anyone just looking for the basics, our locations offer a Class A designated business mailing address to legitimize your location for marketing purposes.

At Venture X Charlotte-The Refinery, we welcome business professionals and startups from all industries to join us in our upscale, modern environment that is designed for the business of work.
