The world is changing and so are the places in which we work
The next generation of workers are used to working in small open spaces like coffee shops and lounges. To an extent it is free but does come with its own problems of the noise and upsetting the premises owner that you are using it all day for the price of a coffee. So, as your business grows and you require more space and facilities, where do you go from there?
Co-working sites are popping up all around us. These can range from renting a small office in a traditional way through to just walking in and finding a desk in an open area. However, some are setting up boutique style spaces where more and more of today’s needs are being met, including a collaborative approach to mixing with other businesses, accessing business services and utilising onsite facilities to save time and money. The cost can be a simple ‘pay as you play’ approach with access available for single day use.
All in all, these places are creating very happy people who are finding their businesses are growing in ways they never thought, or as quickly.
WELCOME TO AGORA
The name Agora comes from the Greeks who met in a square to discuss the local needs, to carry out business and to socialise. It was like a marketplace and it was called Agora.
AGORA's flagship site opened on the outskirts of Southampton in 2019 with a very forward-thinking approach to the space and the businesses that use it.
A very warm welcome awaits you on arrival with happy faces and great coffee. All of our sites have been designed to create healthy, fresh environments using natural lighting, mechanical fresh air ventilation and of course lots of planting! Comfort is key, so a variety of workstations and seating areas have been created along with clean and modern bathroom, shower rooms and kitchen facilities.
Regular engagement with the Agora Engage team helps businesses interact and engage for support through to collaboration opportunities. Associated partner companies are waiting to assist your business with all of its daily needs - especially helpful for start ups and small businesses who cannot afford to include in their company structure.
