Co-working spaces have been popping up like mushrooms these days. Antwerp-based ZapFloorHQ capitalises on the trend with a digital platform that not only takes over the entire administration of office buildings that host multiple businesses but also helps transform them into genuine communities. The startup has now raised €1 million to further revolutionise the way offices are managed in Europe and the rest of the world.
The number of co-working spaces worldwide has grown with an annual average of 15 percent since 2013. According to Instant Offices, today there are more than 32.000 co-working offices worldwide. The same goes for Belgium where new co-working spaces open their doors on a regular basis around the country. They are the ideal home base for freelancers and budding businesses that are not yet able or willing to invest in their own office. However, co-working spaces are also starting to attract larger, more established companies seeking to set up a satellite office. And corporates, inspired by the popularity of co-working spaces, are also starting to organise their own work floors according to the same principles.
