Think online shopping today, you think about fashion, electronics...well anything under the sun that you can imagine. This includes cleaning products which have increased over the past few years as consumers start to crave convenience (thanks Amazon Prime) - more so in 2020 with the COVID-19 pandemic causing us to reach for the nearest antibacterial spray (in bulk for some). But there aren’t many direct dedicated platforms for cleaning products, even if there are, it’s more costly than the usual supermarket brands. What if there was a company that has convenience, affordability & quality all in one?
Within the first 100 days of 2020, our daily lives, the way we work and communicate has drastically changed. The spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) across the world has caused companies to completely readjust their operations in an effort to halt the spread and quite frankly, to stay in business during these challenging times.
The gig economy is propelling a whole new circle of entrepreneurs and freelancers into the workforce. More and more millennials are choosing a lifestyle that allows them to fix their working hours, as well as location. With the increase in logistics efficiency around the world decreasing shipping cost, small local brands can now sell their items internationally with low barriers. For retailers who prefer to have control over their packaging and distribute from where they operate, offices that have ample warehouse storage space are a gem to find as the price of commercial office space might be too high per sqft for inventory storage.
With the injection of $4.4 Billion into WeWork by Softbank last year, the growth of co-working space in South East Asia is about to explode. The expansion of JustCo, the service office arm of Just Co Group with $12m raised and a partnership with Shanghai's Naked Hub, is going to make the big boys scene more interesting. Everyone wants a piece of the this "new way of work", that includes Spaceship too.
Are you a budding entrepreneur that has a small-medium sized business that you run from home? Then this is a post for you. Icon Interior Design has generously shared some of the home office that they have customised for their clients new homes. Too little space at home for a home office? Get extra storage space with Spaceship.
Co-working spaces are getting all the hype these days bringing the entrepreneurial community closer together. When Spaceship Storage started out in 2014, we rented a hot desk at Paktor's office so that we could be surrounded by like-minded hustlers without having to worry constantly about the cost of rent every month.
