Leases, licences and the growth of space on demand

The market for on demand space, such as hot desks, is growing. Start-ups, especially technology-driven businesses tend to start small and need very little space while they incubate. After that initial phase, if they succeed they tend to grow explosively and need lots of space quickly. These two contrasting needs mean that these businesses require great flexibility. This need for flexibility is fuelling the growth of the on demand space market.

In an increasingly digital economy, certain businesses – especially fledgling or smaller businesses – can be run from a single laptop. This could be anywhere from a coffee shop to the entrepreneur’s kitchen table.
