FAQ

What is coworking?
Coworking is an open style of workspace and a style of work. As a workplace, it is often an office space with an open floor plan providing a shared workspace for people to work independently but also allows them the option to collaborate with like-minded people. Coworkers include work-at-home professionals, independent consultants or contractors, traveling workers of multi-campus businesses or of national/global companies, small business owners and employees, startup teams and budding entrepreneurs across all industries. Other terms for this concept include shared workspace, collaborative workspace, hot desking, hoteling, and rent-a-desk but can also be found in executive suites, virtual offices, business centers or incubators/accelerators. Other terms for likely users include mobile/nomad worker, solopreneur, freelancers and independent worker. Coworking locations offer all the basic necessities of a traditional office with conference rooms and private areas in addition to its open floor plan, but also offer camaraderie and sometimes business support and networking opportunities.

What is a virtual office?

A virtual office can almost be taken literally, it has the address of an office, the telephone numbers of an office and the receptionist service of an office except for one key factor, you are not actually based in the office. You are not based in our office daily but have access to meet with clients and conduct meetings in our furnished offices and conference rooms any . You have a personal and professional touch without having to have your office down the hall.

Who typically uses a virtual office?
Smaller or start up companies use virtual office space as a starting ground to help their future growth. Frequent users also include budding entrepreneurs and consultants of various industries. Larger companies and corporations can utilize virtual offices by being able to extend local appeal with regional offices that get them 'closer' to customers. Solo or small law firms can save on overhead and find camaraderie with our large network of attorneys.
