There’s no reason why starting a business has to be a big, scary venture any more. Co-working office spaces with meeting rooms, servicing, and plenty of à la carte options can provide cheap office space, and therefore cut overheads and responsibilities.
Work life has changed dramatically over the years and you no longer have to face the major costs of full-time staff with bums on seats, and huge office expenses. In this economy, it’s even more important to be saving costs when running your business.
Whether you’re a one-man band or a small startup, or you have headquarters in other countries but need to do business in Singapore, there are plenty of options that can keep your costs down. They’ll also give you flexibility and the opportunity to meet like-minded people.

Located out of the city centre in Yio Chu Kang, this is an all-round venue; it has everything from meeting rooms to a clubhouse and a restaurant – even a sky garden to relax in when you have some downtime from your work. It’s also fantastic value; all utilities and Wi-Fi costs are included, so there are no hidden extras at the end of the month. Being further away from town means there’s no ERP and lower parking fees, too.
From as little as $28 a month you have a virtual office, an address for your company registration, plus the use of all the available business services and leisure facilities, and high-tech 24-hour security. And, when you’re a bit further along in your business, there are co-working spaces as well as fitted offices that can be rented on a flexible basis.

Launched in February this year, Club Co is focused on people who need to host meetings, events and networking lunches as a part of their business. What’s more, there’s a restaurant, Club Meatballs, at the front of the building where the shared offices are located, making this a great option for those who like good food!
One of the reasons for the popularity of co-working is the option it presents for engagement with likeminded people. Shared offices provide an instant community with opportunities to share ideas, collaborate and make connections. Club Co is also open to the public, so members have an external and internal community. It’s about fun, communication and networking.
As well as offering flexibility (there are four membership options, some with no strings attached), there’s additional value for members through monthly events including social nights – wine tasting, for example – and business events that focus on the issues startups want to know about, such as business coaching and mentoring.
How can I work at Club Co?
Choose from four packages ranging from $50 a day for drop-ins, to a collaborative space for $500 a month, or up to $1,500 a month for a dedicated work station with locker, Wi-Fi and full access to the meeting pod and boardroom. All membership fees are credit to spend on food and beverage purchases at Club Meatballs and the Club Co Café, which makes the office space, effectively, free.
