Launched in late 2015, Kowrk.com is already present in 25 cities across 10 countries. They have revamped the ecosystem of professional work space by matching seekers and providers of shared office spaces. Head quartered in Hong Kong, Kowrk is expanding its foot print in India. They have opened their second office in Mumbai.
Kowrk has now launched Shared offices in India – ‘It’s like an AirBnB for office space’. Companies using commercial office spaces can rent their spare desks and meeting rooms via Kowrk. Prospective tenants – which includes startups, freelancers, digital nomad, and small & medium companies can rent professional spaces at affordable rates and flexible terms.
‘Shared Offices model will enrich the coworking trend that is being seen across the countries,” says Kowrk’s founder Honey J Kathuria, who previously managed offline operations in APAC for Hotels.com. “One one hand, there is a high demand for more affordable shared work spaces that coworking spaces and business centers are unable to fulfill. On the other side, many companies have unused space that they can monetize by renting it to others. Matching them, is a win-win for everyone.”
For professional companies looking to share their office space, Kowrk offers services to create the most attractive offer, market it and help with legal agreements. They provide consulting services to assist companies select suitable tenants without investing a lot of time. There is also an option to list the space for free.
Kowrk has launched an incentive program for people to list spare desks in their offices. Both referrer and referee get discounts and gift vouchers when a space is added at Kowrk.com.
After maturing the model in India, Kowrk plans to launch it in other countries.
Future of work is here, truly!
