When you’re starting a business venture then there are a multitude of things to think about. One of the main components of getting a new business infrastructure in place is to decide on where you’re going to work.
If you’ve got an idea for your venture that doesn’t really require business premises as such, then working from home is always a good way to go. However, not all of us are able to do this as there can often be distractions. Some of us simply need to go out the front door to work in the morning.
Having a business workplace to go to can therefore work really well if you look at renting some office space, either for yourself or other employees in your new start-up venture. This can be a little bit daunting to undertake if you’re new to the office space rental game, but there’s a handy way of making the process quick and easy.

Go compare

Comparison websites can be found that tell you ways of saving money and getting the best deals for just about every kind of product, from food to clothes and from cars to broadband.
Now there’s an office space rental comparison website that does the same kind of job. Head along to Office Genie and you’ll be able to search and find all manner of vacant office space up for grabs. It allows you to search all of the currently available office space throughout the UK.
This is a wonderfully efficient way of pinpointing office space that matches your needs exactly, along with providing the cheapest and best deals too. Choose from traditional leased offices, serviced offices, shared offices or simply rent a desk in an office block. The service is free to use and provides you with a one-stop-shop for new start-up needs when it comes to office requirements.

What kind of venture?

The great thing about using an office space comparison site like this is that it works for any kind of start-up venture. So it can be an excellent idea no matter if you’re a developer looking to go solo or a web designer who needs to branch out into ‘proper’ office space. There’s an office out there somewhere for you and this is the ideal way to find it.
Shared office space is great because it usually comes with the likes of broadband, utilities and security already in place. This is generally covered by a monthly flat fee, although hot desk schemes also allow you to simply pay for what you use. Shared offices offer flexibility and short term contracts too.

Serviced office schemes are also a good idea if you’re expanding by the day. These are ‘bells and whistles’ affairs, often with receptionists, post rooms and everything else that is needed when a fledgling business is on the up. It also gives your new start-up a presentable ‘face’ that will not only look good when people want to visit, but also possibly tempt new clients too.

  1. Blimey Bob. I’m surprised you let such blatant advertising on here. Although it’s a nice looking site, they don’t offer anything different to the many other UK office listing sites.

    It’s marketing, I’ll give you that. But Rob made a point of contacting me, disclosed fully who he was and why he wanted to do a guest post, and the topic is germain for UK-based startups.
