Features That a Startup Office Must Have

By Iqra Aslam Memon

Every entrepreneur wants their office to define them and their startup because setting up an office is a big step for their business as it signifies the growth of entrepreneurial career and their desire to flourish. Nonetheless, selecting and setting up an office for the first time is an exciting and challenging task for an entrepreneur with a limited budget.
Being startup owner, he/she may have an idea about how their workplace should be. However, having a tight budget can lead them to compromise on one thing or another. He/she may sign a rent or lease agreement for their office which, might turn out to be more expansive than he/she has calculated. The recent emerging concept of shared space seems to be a suitable option for them as the rent of co-working space is affordable and will contain all the features that a startup must have.
A startup founder’s office should represent the creativity and the ambition of its owner. It should be a source of success and not a cluttered mess. This blog will discuss some of the things regarding how a startup office should be.

Noise Free

No doubt location matter for a business but it should not be in a place where the outside noise disturbs the productivity of the employees who are trying to concentrate on their work. The office should be sound proof so that it did not affect an employee’s work.

Bright and Airing

An office should motivate its employees to be there first thing in the morning. A dim-lighted, packed and poorly ventilated office will not encourage employees to be there and work till late. Thus, a workplace with access to natural light and proper ventilation will not only make the place bright with sufficient air circulation but will also increase the employee productivity, as they will like to be present at the work every day.

Attractive Décor

A workspace décor can impress or discourage your clients so an entrepreneur must consider it before moving in. The monochromatic color scheme will represent dull and boring startup. On the contrary, bold color with an attractive interior that compliments the company’s logo and personality will emphasis the startup identity and increase brand awareness.

Openness and Flexibility

Most startups prefer open space rather than traditional cubicles because open office encourages more interaction and collaboration than employees crammed up in their cubicles. It also initiates openness among personnel. Due to open space members have the flexibility to sit and work with anyone. Moreover, it also cost less than the cubicles.

Personal Space

Working non-stop on a project can be tiresome for personnel so there should be a personal space where they can relax or interacts with their colleagues. It is the spot where employees go to if he/she is under stress and wants a break. It can have comfortable sofas to make them feel at home.

Networking

Startup grows with collaboration and in doing so create their network. A network can help you to land more clients and be more productive. An office at the right place can help you in networking. Co-working can be a way to build your network as you are new in an industry and co-workers can help you move ahead in your business.
A workplace tells clients who they are going to work with and it encourages employees to come daily to work for their employer so shared spaces like PopCorn Studio, LaunchBox, Cowork24.pk, Workstance, DIY Space, Venture Drive, Kickstart Gulberg are some of the ideal places to set up your startup at an affordable rent.
