Your under-utilised space – 4x options
1. TheWorkary Popup (Pilot)
Following a FREE evaluation / scoring of your under-utilised space, and a successful score of 7+ (out of 10), we work with you to set up a simple, risk-free 6x month Workary pilot, creating an affordable, local ‘pilot’ for startups & entrepreneurs. We keep the setup as simple as possible to reduce any risk + maximise the pilot’s chance of success.
2. TheWorkary (Your Town)
Following a successful pilot, we work closely with Council teams to maximise the value of the project for all – Members, local businesses + Economic & Regen Teams. Upon joining all Members are actively encouraged to contribute to / support each other, their local Workary + local Community – skill + knowledge sharing, events, networking + more #togetherwearestronger
3. TheWorkary+ (Your Asset Portfolio)
There are often spaces within a Council’s Estates Asset Portfolio that may not be suitable for a full Workary Pilot or Campus, however they MAY be currently under-utilised and & could provide the perfect grow on or grow up space for local high growth teams & startups. We help realise the value of these under-utilised spaces by promoting these spaces to our Network of local startups & entrepreneurs – we have successfully identified + transformed under-utilised space above retail units + even within Council offices.
4. Virtual Membership (Your Digital Skills Network)
Desk spaces are limited at each Workary & there are often local entrepreneurs who don’t yet need a space. They may however need support as they grow & develop their businesses – the right advice, at the right time, from the right people. We have developed our Virtual Membership to make it really easy for ANY local startup + entrepreneur to enjoy the benefits of ‘Connecting’ to our Network (events, benefits + more) – Virtual Membership is also open to all local businesses + third-sector organisations who can share their experiences + challenges + become part of an active, engaged, collaborative local network #togetherwearestronger
