As if we already had less reasons to love co-working spaces, that virtual offices now have just made us to love them more. Co-working spaces have been a huge hit across the globe in with Freelancers and work from home professional attempting to find sense of belonging and self-realization.
These spaces gave certain types of workers, such as freelancers, the opportunity to go to work at an actual office in a building, instead of from working from home, and share that space with others. It allows them to leverage the assets, that doesn’t totally belong to them and still utilize them to the max benefits.
But Virtual Offices, takes the coworking resources to all new different level. In a simple word by Craig Holland, The pioneer of the Virtual space services, “A virtual office is an address that you sign up to that is separate from your home address,”
A simple way to utilize virtual spaces is to simply take a desk at Co-working spaces and use it as official address for business documentation purposes. It also provides the opportunity to use meeting rooms in the co-working office building and attend networking events. In a country like India, where 85% young graduates prefer self-employment or business over tradition jobs, most people will do that at home. Sometimes they will come into co-working spaces to understand the depth of troubled waters. So having a business address that feels like a home but provides all the needed services and prevents expensive coffee shop meetings with no fixed agenda is a priority for every business owner. And at the top of that, it provides the ability to have a central location as your business address and that’s where you’re registered, that’s where people perceive the business is operating from, it gives that professional underline to your business.

“After working at home for several years, I had troubles in setting up everything. It was difficult to have client meetings at home, Clients were limited and most of the work was dependent on the recommendation by other clients.”
“Most of my decisions were dictated by previous clients as well as my willingness to work.” He said.
“Also most of my work involve travelling for days, in such situation business documentation was unattended.”
He said co-working spaces allowed him to “serendipitously make a new connection by sharing a space with someone”.
