Office Business Centers and Their Role in Networking



Love it or hate it, networking is a valuable tool worth investing in and startup companies in particular have an urgent need to network for business and fundraising opportunities.

An article by business consultant, Chris Garrett, highlights five reasons why networking is worth investing in: Friendship Benefits, Opportunities, Advice, Assistance, and Positive Influence.

While everyone may agree that there are benefits to networking, the actual process and avenues to participate may not be as clear. For occupants in Preferred Office Network’s business centers, there are existing programs already in place that make networking a pleasant experience.

Typically, these events are organized by the Center Manager and can include birthday gatherings, Happy Hours, Lunch and Learns, contests, Meet and Greets, noteworthy speakers, and more. These events allow the occupants of the centers to mingle, discuss business opportunities, talk strategy, and even get assistance from other businesses in a casual and fun setting. Networking can be a crucial element to marketing your business and services, and most of these events are free.

Preferred Office Network is comprised of 350+ business centers in North America that provide furnished office space, meeting space, networking opportunities, phone answering, reception, and cleaning services. To search for office space, visit www.preferredofficenetwork.com/location-map.
