A List of Successful Startups, Thanks To Coworking

As a business owner, one of the first lessons to learn is that success does not happen overnight. Owners of successful startups will attest that it requires countless hours of effort.

As you search for the best place to work from, you want to make sure you're getting the best possible return on your investment. Coworking not only solves an immediate problem while you get your business off the ground. It also helps you create a successful network of peers, mentors, & even investors. 

Coworking spaces that host weekly events are outstanding locations for networking and meeting new friends. The entrepreneurial atmosphere coworking provides will help you build successful startups much faster than cafes or working remotely from home.

The following businesses are recent proof. They moved into a coworking space not too long ago. Of course, the talented teams behind these successful startups are the reason why they've reached greater heights. However, they also got a little bit of help from the extraordinary coworking spaces they call home. 

Here's our list of successful startups, thanks to coworking:

Code Technology

Healthcare is defined in outcomes and cost. While there have been a number of advances and innovations in monitoring and controlling cost, relatively little has been done to track and improve outcomes.

Collecting patient-reported outcome (PRO) data is extremely challenging and expensive to do internally. Code Technology collects PRO data as a service. Collecting data entirely outside of the clinic, they provide a cost-effective solution to building a private registry and quantify the value of a practice.

At Code Technology, their vision is to enable physicians and organizations to quantitatively measure the outcomes of every single procedure or intervention they provide. That way, they can help the healthcare community provide the best possible care for patients.

BeMate 

There are several online platforms where you can find holiday apartments, but on BeMate they can promise that your booking gives you much more than a simple stay. They have designed a comprehensive offering to ensure that you not only have a place to stay but a place that you won't want to leave.

Before you even start planning your travel, they have already started working for you: they handpick the best apartments in the best parts of the city to make sure that whatever you choose, the high quality of your accommodation is not a maybe, but is guaranteed.

They ensure that all your wishes are fulfilled, from the moment you request a booking to the time you arrive back home. Regardless of the contact method you pick, Whatsapp, email, telephone, or in person through City Mate, tell BeMate what you need to enjoy your trip to the fullest, and they'll do their best to fulfill your wish.

They offer a full range of on-demand services designed to make your stay easier, avoid inconveniences and maximise your enjoyment: transfer service to take you to your flight, food delivered to cure your "empty fridge syndrome", cleaning service to keep the apartment as clean and tidy during your stay as it was on arrival, and more.

They combine the freedom of an apartment with that extra touch of comfort that you get from a hotel. You'll even have guest status in a hotel near the apartment: just enter the hotel facilities (or call the concierge) and enjoy all its services as if you were staying in one of its rooms. All this is summed up in the basic principle that defines the BeMate difference: unique apartments with all your wishes fulfilled.

They employ appropriate technology for the sake of your business. Ackman & Dickenson use tech to your advantage, building onto your current platforms and systems where appropriate. And building from scratch where that is appropriate too.
