Being amongst other forward-thinking people with an enterprising spirit can create a hotbed for new ideas.

While it might not always seem obvious, tough economic times can have a silver lining. That’s because it’s times of duress when both businesses and individuals are most likely to challenge the conventional way of doing things. And in doing so, new and more efficient ways of doing business are often discovered. One such example is Desk x Space, which has re-invented traditional office space to create a place where smart, entrepreneurial people can share and collaborate on business projects.

On the surface, Desk x Space ticks all the mandatory criteria any person might look for in a co-working space. For around $150 a week, tenants receive a desk in a vibrant and friendly environment complete with wi-fi, meeting rooms, and kitchen facilities.

However, one of the big points of difference with Desk x Space is the opportunity to collaborate with other people who also choose to work there. Being amongst other forward-thinking people with an enterprising spirit can create a hotbed for new ideas. And, according to the founder of Desk x Space, Steven Arthur, that leads to people teaming up on all sorts of projects.

Arthur says, "A range of different professionals use Desk x Space. We have everyone from designers, copywriters, tech teams, film producers, event managers, online businesses and more. With all these skills in the same office, you often see people teaming up on a job or directing new business towards each other."

"Yet another benefit of Desk x Space is that when you’re starting any kind of business, you often come across challenges that you haven’t necessarily faced before. They might be finance questions, internet questions, queries on marketing or something else entirely. At Desk x Space, there’s usually someone sitting right by you who can offer a solution."

Besides business, Desk x Space also offers its tenants a social aspect to their work environment. There are regular social drinks and lunches where everyone can relax and unwind with their co-workers.

Desk x Space is located in the creative district of Darlinghurst, close to cafes, restaurants and public transport. For more information, visit deskspace.com.au
