Coworking (or co-working) is working in an office with other people that are not members of one’s own business or team. Indeed, a large proportion of those that use coworking space are the only member of their organisation! Facilities such as meeting rooms, office equipment and furniture, and even internet access are shared to enable efficiencies of cost for their users.
Check out our Coworking Space page for more information.
Of course, it’s not actually virtual, it’s our physical address. The ‘virtual’ refers to the fact that you use it as your business address even though you aren’t actually based there. There are four main reasons why you would want to do this:
- To give your business a professional veneer by appearing to have a city-centre office when in reality you might work from your kitchen table!
- To keep your family’s address private.
- To have us handle your mail for you. (We can scan and send or even handle it. For example, we can add bills to your accounting software, pay in cheques or save other documents in your chosen cloud-storage solution such as Drop-Box.
- Give your business a ‘presence’ in a second location. For example, if you’re based in Cambridge but want to target the Norwich market you can use our address to be closer to your target clients. (Right now we only have our Norwich office but hope soon to have many more locations.)
