We have a great show today. We are meeting with Jason Anderson, President of the fastest growing coworking franchise, Venture X. Venture X strives to provide high quality, flexible, collaborative spaces to business professionals allowing their members to grow their companies and exceed their business goals. They hope to provide a unique set of amenities and benefits that support business growth and professional development. Their vision is to provide upscale, flexible workspaces in every major city in the US and in some overseas markets.
As the coworking space industry grows, a number of key trends are emerging. Owners and operators of coworking spaces likely find that attention to these trends will help them to attract and retain new business.
One important trend is the central role technology plays in the formation of a coworking space. Some coworking spaces owners who operate on their own invest only in the bare minimum when it comes to technology. As their business grows, they find it hard to keep up when they don’t have the infrastructure to support a larger number of clients. Venture X helps our franchisees start strong by guiding them as they create a technological infrastructure that can handle a large number of clients being “online” at any given time. We also help them to secure technology that will attract clients like “smart” conference rooms and high-end video conferencing equipment.
In Part Two, we play a clip from our popular Great Quotes in Franchising podcast.
