Despite recession, need for virtual office space continues to grow

It pays to have a virtual office space.

Starting a small business is exciting and challenging. It requires time, effort and most of all, money. Things like start up costs and overhead can sometimes overwhelm a new entrepreneur. Luckily, CoLab Orlando provides a great way to keep overhead and start up costs low with a virtual office.

A virtual office is simply a formal business address without the office; companies pay for the address and often the ability to get mail delivered but don’t have an actual office. With coworking, virtual office space becomes more than an address: coworkers get to use the conference rooms to meet with clients or can drop in and work for a day in addition to getting the office address.

Coworking is a rapidly growing alternative to executive suites and rented virtual addresses. Coworking is much less expensive and far more flexible. CoLab Orlando is one of the largest and highest rated coworking spaces in the country, according to

An official business address has become much more important for businesses. Having a downtown Orlando business address at CoLab Orlandogives your business an added sense of credibility as well as allowing clients to meet you in a professional setting and not just a coffee shop or home office. Online, business directories such as Google Places, give better ranking for businesses with a ‘real’ address over ones with a residential or home office address.

Virtual office space in Orlando also comes at a fraction of the cost of regular office space leases. CoLab offers those the ability to rent an office, a cubicle, or even just a desk — which ever fits your needs.

Being able to work remotely is a valuable money and time saving option. Renting a space at CoLab allows you to do that while still providing you with the amenities that regular office spaces have: a real conference room and not just your living room, a real downtown address and not just your house with kids toys strewn in the yard and of course, a ping pong table.

Need more than just the address and occasional use of confernece rooms? All coworking memberships come with free use of the conference rooms, free high speed internet, free printing and free coffee.

If you’re interested in moving your virtual office out of your dining room and into downtown, give us a call and take a tour. You won’t be sorry you did and we even offer free work passes to try our space out for a day.
