Hotdesk is a shared office space platform connecting businesses that have extra office or desk space with solo entrepreneurs, start-ups, small businesses and consultancies that need access to affordable and flexible space, be it for hours, days, weeks or months. This not only frees up cash for everybody but helps to build a collaborative environment where people come together to network, share insights and help each other succeed. Hotdesk is a collaborative consumption platform based in Melbourne, Australia and focusing on the sharing of office and meeting space. Hotdesk was established in early 2013 when its founder, Steve Glaveski, identified a gap in the commercial office leasing market when searching for casual, flexible office space - particularly in the face of rapidly growing demand for flexible space by entrepreneurs, start-ups and small consultancies. We aim to increase working capital for both parties while providing users with the opportunity to use and pay for space as and when they need it. We see ourselves facilitating a shift towards a different collaborative way of working. Since launching our beta website in July 2013 we have successfully gained mainstream media attention in The Australian, The Financial Review, Startupsmart and Shoestring which helped secure seed funding in late 2013. Hotdesk helps businesses: Improve Cashflow - rent out their unused space or by paying only for flexible office space and avoiding longterm contracts Collaborate - work alongside industry peers, bouncing ideas off other people and networking Telework - provide a OH&S friendly way to work remotely while staying close to clients or close to home and maintaining an optimal work / life balance while saving money on transport and decreasing congestion on our roads Stay Flexible - whether on a business trip, visiting a client, running an important meeting or in need of some project space, work from where your business needs to be for only as long as it needs to be there Support the environment - the carbon footprint per person reduces per office building as the number of occupants increases Who Is Hotdesk?
