How Business Centers Help Small Businesses Grow in NYC

Posted by Robert Blaker on Apr 6, 2017 3:00:00 PM



Finding an affordable office in New York can seem like a daunting task for a startup or small business owner. The all-consuming process of setting up new office space might take time away from building the primary service of the company. Establishing an office that runs efficiently requires accurate calculations of the space needed and what is affordable. Most start-up companies must do this while estimating revenues and profit margins. Business centers can help small business owners by providing flexibility and taking the guesswork out of finding office space.

Finding the Right Fit

Paying too much for an office space can negatively impact profits, but paying a small amount for an inconvenient space that doesn't meet the company's needs is also a waste of money. Business centers exist to help companies meet their specific needs for both office space and the tools needed to do business. Investing the time to research various options will ensure a company finds a suitable location that is within their budget. This can be done without compromising on value or service.

Room for Growth

For many companies, choosing the right location is as crucial to success as completing the initial market research for their business. The company needs to be in a visible and convenient area for clients or customers. Additionally, the company should also think about long-term growth potential. When a company outgrows its space before the lease expires. Business centers provide furnished office spaces in prominent business districts for companies with flexible growth. While some locations have a high rental price, we provide locations that are reasonably priced such as our small office spaces.

Typically, most new companies require only a small office space during their initial phase of business operations. Anticipated growth does not translate well into a large office on opening day. A well-prepared small business owner will look for a convenient location that comes with growth potential. In a business center setting, a small business owner might rent a small office space for six months or longer. The building should include additional offices, meeting rooms and conference rooms that are accessible as needed. With flexible leasing terms, business centers can provide additional space as needed by the client.

Essential Amenities

Flexible small office options typically include other services that are essential to running a business. The monthly rental fee may include utilities, a receptionist, use of reception areas, IT support, and high-quality furnishings. Most business centers also offer access to meeting and conference rooms. Small businesses can save on the expenses of purchasing workstations and other furnishings. Business centers often come fully equipped with desks, chairs, and telephones.
