New York Coworking Space - Is Bigger Better?

As a startup business owner, have you ever asked yourself how your company can overcome a much larger funded competitor? You may be imagining your competitors using all their capital to hire developers, an aggressive sales team, building out a savvy Mad Men-level marketing department, and getting involved in the next three largest global markets. Can you go up against this Goliath?

Our big tip here: using the community and personal attention found at coworking spaces, you can compete with larger businesses by using resources available on-demand at arm's length from your hot desk.

Although you will need to choose one of these, it might be good to remember the old adage “always look before you leap” before making the move. Taking a realistic look at which stage your company is in, and what resources are needed to keep it afloat is a good beginning.
