YES! Coworking can be Profitable, Showing how Since 2001
It’s the right time to invest in the flex office and coworking industry
Advantages to the commercial landlord:
Not sure if the flex office industry is the right move for you? Consider these points:
"I have high vacancy! I need a revenue-generating option that’s not retail."
Vacancy rate for commercial space is at an all-time high. Flex office and coworking may be your best bet, delivering above-market rents compared to traditional office or retail.
We build the financial model to understand profit opportunities.
“I don’t know a thing about running and operating a coworking business!”
Thankfully, you don’t need to recreate the wheel. Many landlords and developers are jumping into this industry with success without prior experience. You bring the investment, we’ll do the work.
We build the Business, so your Operation runs smoothly.
“If I do a build-out, I need a solid, realistic plan to know if I can open on time."
Time is money and the longer construction takes, the more money lost. You need the truth about construction timelines and cost.
We give you numbers with integrity.
"Am I going to lose money? Will this be a poor investment?”
We get it – you don’t want to lose your investment! We know exactly how to avoid that and instead generate higher revenue per square foot than current market rates and show profit..
We protect your investment.
Financial Model FAQs
Why should I get a financial model from a coworking and flex office expert? Why can’t I have my CFO make it?
There are specific products beyond space rental that go into creating a successful coworking and flex office model that may be overlooked by your team. It’s not just about space, furniture and coffee!
What’s so special about your financial model? Why can’t I just download an online template?
We deliver a customized model with a realistic timeline to reach cash flow positive status based on your specific market and conditions. In addition, we meet with you weekly to share progress and findings. We are committed to getting to the right decision with you on the highest and best use scenario. One-size-fits-all models actually fit none.
What kind of experience do you have? Why should I trust your model with my investment?
Because we know how to optimize your stack! Since 2001 we have designed over 120 models across North America. We understand current trends and best practices to deliver a profitable business. Additionally, we have actually successfully operated profitable spaces– we’re not just giving second-hand opinions!
What else is included in the financial model besides the spreadsheet?
In addition to the spreadsheet, we include an optimal test fit of the space. During our weekly calls, we educate you on the importance of the data that we use in our research and deliver in the model. Additionally, we offer a separate strategic plan of how we will implement the model with you.
What should be included in a coworking/flex office financial model that typical models don’t include?
A good model should include a realistic timeline to reach profitability, including anticipated seasonality and variability of occupancy. Our financial model also includes a detailed outline of construction costs and operating expenses.
Who does your financial model work best for?
Our financial model works best for those who are looking to develop a profit-generating business. Typically, that means the space needs to be at least 12,000 square feet and have a floor plan based on office space, not primarily open coworking.
I’m interested in moving forward, how long will it take to deliver our customized financial model?
Typically, it takes between 4 and 6 weeks to deliver the final model into your hands. It all starts with a discovery session to set mutual expectations. Once we engage, we’ll set up the weekly call schedule where we share progress and our research methodology.
