Office Types

A recent article, What’s the Right Office Type for Your Startup? by Hannah Dickins says that one of the biggest concerns for many startups is deciding what office type will be the best fit for them.

Here are five types of offices to choose from for your startup.

Home office

It’s the easiest and the cheapest of all options for many startups to go with until the business grow. However, you must choose a dedicated home office space where you can work with less distraction because you have to share your place with your family or friends.

Virtual offices

When you prefer to have a professional office, but you don’t want to physically go there every day, a virtual office is the best suit for you.  This plan may include a virtual receptionist to answer calls on behalf of your company, a prestigious mailing address, and access to the business center amenities.

Co-working spaces

Co-working spaces are shared offices with other freelancers and business owners from different fields and industries. You can rent office space by the hour, use common meeting spaces to meet with potential clients/ investors, be surrounded with dynamic individuals, etc.

Rental offices

Renting your own workplace involves a higher price tag, but offers you greater flexibility.  It allows you to choose how big of a space you need, whether that space should be open office space with cubes or individual offices, if you need other facilities like meeting space and parking.

Leased offices

Leased offices can come with fixed terms of six months, one year, or even five year contracts with a landlord, so it is something that you should consider—of course you don’t want to get locked into a long term lease that’s not right for your startup. Breach of contract can be costly.
