Why startups & coworking must stick together

According to StartupBlink’s 2020 report on the world’s Startup Rankings, Australia ranks seventh among the top ten most startup-friendly countries in the world. While this indicates an expanding startup ecosystem in the country, it also entails a growing demand for space to foster innovation.

In an era where innovation, scalability and productivity are cornerstones of business success, startups need more than just a growth bed. Acting as a launchpad for the likes of Instagram, Spotify, and Uber, coworking has a proven track record of nurturing businesses from their inception to becoming multinational conglomerates.

A hub for innovation & productivity

At the heart of any startup lies innovation, a premise on which coworking spaces are also built.. Open office plans defined by strategically-positioned hot desks and breakout areas in coworking offices facilitate not only collaboration with peers, but also connection and co-innovation with professionals from various industries who may offer insights into growth areas.

Startups can quench their thirst for innovation with a plethora of professional development workshops, social events and partnership programmes. This means more avenues to network with practitioners, exchange ideas and collaborate with both breadth and depth.

The result: incomparable lead generation opportunities.

Top it off with a suite of business services that enable startups to streamline operations and focus on business goals.

The option to scale up affordably is integral to startups, so being tied down to long-term leases and expensive fit-out projects is counterintuitive togrowth. Premium coworking spaces like JustCo cater perfectly to the dynamic needs of growing startups.
