Location Matters: An Inexpensive Office Lease is Crucial to a Startup

Posted by Robert Blaker on Feb 24, 2015 7:00:00 AM



The physical location of a company can do many things for a business. A company’s address can hold much more value than one might think. Along with countless other benefits, the right location can: allow for opportunities to network, provide a sense of stability and credibility, and increase a company’s visibility and presence within an industry. These factors can be important to the success of any company, but for a startup, an inexpensive office lease in the right location may be the crucial difference between success and failure.

There are many factors that people associate with a company’s location or address. If you are fortunate enough to find an inexpensive office lease in a great location, your startup will already have a huge advantage over other companies with no physical presence. Some locations come with reputations of prestige and professionalism, while others may be industrial, trendy, or any other multitude of associations that people make with a certain areas or addresses.

Due to the value of a new company’s location, many startups are looking into inexpensive office lease setups in desirable locations that are more flexible than traditional long-term leasing arrangements. Most startups are simply not financially equipped for the traditional long-term leases and huge overhead costs associated with outfitting an empty commercial rental space. Now, more than ever, there are many options to find an arrangement that fits the needs of a startup company.

Many people involved in entrepreneurial ventures think that getting a desirable office location is beyond their grasp, but this is usually not the case. You can find inexpensive office lease arrangements for fully furnished offices with furniture and reception staff or simple meeting rooms. There are also communal work environments that offer shared break rooms and networking opportunities that may suit your needs.

The ability to meet a client or peer in person in your own office setting can be incredibly valuable. The security and professional demeanor that a workspace in the right location can provide can make an inexpensive office lease a smart and affordable investment in your company’s future.
