What should I be looking for in the office for my business? This question is a very important question that you as the founder of a business needs to be very careful answering the question.
The short answer is actually a question “What are you looking for?”. I know that you are not expecting an answer and not rephrased question. Still I would urge you to answer what are you looking for from any office. If you are able to answer this then, I am very sure that you will be able to answer the question on what to look for from a office space.
You may want to checkout this checklist that we put together on what should one look for from an office space. This office space could be that bedroom in your home, or a small rental office or a coworking space.
The “BIG” difference between a coworking space and a business center is the opportunity to network with other tenants of the space to look for opportunities to collaborate and the events that the coworking space hosts that may be of use to you.
Yes, coworking spaces look flashier than your traditional office. Yes, some of them would offer free unlimited coffee. Yes, some of them would have recreational facilities for you to relax. The question to ask is that do you need these or are you at a stage where you would spend every single rupee that you have into the business than on these frills.
For those reading this post. Please let me know by commenting with a “yes” if you found the checklist useful. If you want to add something more to the checklist please comment too.
