Finding your niche could be the ticket to profitability for your coworking space

Finding your niche could be the ticket to profitability for your coworking space

Coworking spaces have proven to be the future of work with their massive growth but why are many still unprofitable? Battling the coworking giants WeWork and Regus is a frightening endeavor but doable. Niche coworking seems to be the recipe for success with shared workspaces after these corporate coworking leaders have emerged.

Your coworking space is not the Field of Dreams - if you build it, they may not come. You are not just selling desk space or a private room. Building your brand and community around a niche can be what makes you stand out from the crowd and intrigue the right people to join.

Phone, wallet, keys...check. Every morning we make sure we start our day not forgetting one.

Apple and Google are driven to eliminate the wallet with their payment platforms using the smartphone, and seem to be successful as adoption rises and wallets get smaller.

While smart locks have attempted to eliminate keys with the smartphone, our keychains have stayed the same which is why Nexkey created the Core. Instead of replacing the lock from the outside-in like traditional smart locks, the Nexkey Core reinvented the lock from the inside-out, making it the first smart access device that can turn any lock into a smart lock. The Nexkey Core can replace every one of our keys.

Future workspaces will be anywhere. Access anywhere with Nexkey.
