In this episode on the theme of scaling your coworking business, we catch Tajinder from the Lonon based charity Bathtub 2 Boardroom. She tells us about a journey which began with “falling into coworking” in 2012 and now involves running three spaces — with further expansion plans.
Give it a listen to hear about serendipity that made market research redundant, the unexpected idiosyncrasies of basing your coworking space in a college, and how to build a good reputation to help you as you grow.
We also hear about
the way in which scaling aids adaptability
the risks and negatives of scaling
maintaining a culture across multiple floors and spaces
how to manage a growing community when things go wrong
what to consider when looking at a new location
a potentially positive outcome of Brexit…
… and Tajinder’s top tip if you’re wanting to open another coworking space!
