The Next Generation of Office Space

A New Generation of Office Space in Naples.

Office Space has radically changed over the past 5 years and will continue to evolve every day. The days of working in an executive center or traditional office space are slowly dying off and people are moving into the new collaborative workspaces called, “coworking”. As the economy adjust’s, more people are finding that corporations are not everything they hoped for. The average person in today’s economy will have over 10 jobs before they retire.

What does this have to do with “The Next Generation of Office Space”?

Good question. The answer is simple. If people don’t keep their jobs long term, and corporate jobs are no longer “awesome”, then people will begin to create their own jobs. Entrepreneurship is on the rise and it’s not slowing down. With the economy in a recession, people are not able to find jobs; so what do they do? They create them! This is exactly why coworking facilities and the new generation of office spaces exist.

Out with the old. In with the new.

Executive Centers traditionally require the tenants first and last month rent, with nothing included. You then pay for furniture, your phone and get charged for every single thing possible. In Naples, Florida, rent on average begins around $1,000/month, making a startup cost nearly $3,000 ($1,000 for first month + $1,000 for last month + furniture). Even companies that can afford it are starting to find it invaluable. In the new generation of office space, like Venture X in Naples, Florida, people pay by the day or month, with little to no risk. Furniture is supplied, no leases, and no isolation. Full time memberships start at $350. If your budget can’t afford it the next month, then you don’t have to sign up for it. Memberships are flexible, so every type of company can customize their own plan, and only pay for what they need.

Working alone sucks.

Entrepreneurs and small businesses are slowly starting to figure this out; working alone sucks. As seen in Office Space, when Milton was placed downstairs, he was isolated an alone. This is how executive centers are built. Introverts or Extroverts, people are social by nature. It has been proven that people who work in a cowork facility improve not only their social life, but their business as well.

Join the movement.

Don’t be left behind. It’s time to join the movement. Whether you work from home, a coffee shop or an Executive Center, it’s time to leave the past where it belongs…in the past. According to the Harvard Business Review, the rise of  coworking facilities are just beginning and they will increase by 40% in 2012.
