In today’s article we’re looking at the success story of one of the fastest-growing coworking hubs in the United States. Serendipity Labs is a relatively fresh company which managed to stand out from the crowd of similar businesses by providing an upscale workplace to freelancers, entrepreneurs and small businesses.
A brief history of Serendipity Labs
Serendipity Labs was founded in 2011 and is based in Rye, New York. The membership-based premium coworking center has witnessed incredible prosperity over the past seven years and currently has nearly 200 employees. The brand continuously works to honor it mission statement by providing top-notch services at all its locations.
Vision and mission
The continuously expanding Serendipity Labs aims at providing an upscale and fully functional workplace on a membership basis. By proclaiming that the company’s not in the office rental business, but rather in the hospitality business, their goal of providing the finest work-time experience to corporate workers and freelancing individuals alike is quite evident. The corporation’s declared desire is to build a nationwide network of well-equipped, inspirational offices with the intention of offering a more balanced work-life experience to members.
By becoming a member, you get access to Serendipity Labs’ coworking rooms, private offices and conference rooms. Through a sleek and modern design, they aim at providing not only quiet working rooms to ignite productivity, but also fun social rooms where networking is highly encouraged. The hospitable staff are at your disposal, willing to meet your every demand. The coworking hub’s locations are carefully chosen so you can cut down on your commute time and enjoy a productive working day not too far away from home. The enterprise-grade technology that Serendipity Labs offers to its members is another great asset of the company, and features a unique cloud-based platform, secure high-speed Internet, network access control and complimentary phone service.
Locations and future expansions
After only 7 years of activity, Serendipity Labs has established itself as one of the key players in the U.S. coworking sector. In such a relatively short amount of time, the corporation managed to open a total of 28 coworking offices in 17 different states.
Although the company already enjoys considerable success nationwide, it shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. As a matter of fact, there are over 125 Serendipity Labs coworking hubs currently under development across the country, so don’t be surprised if you’ll see one popping up in your hometown soon.
The rapid expansion of Serendipity Labs locations is partly due to its clever strategy. They have two different types of franchise. The first is when a hotel operator is looking to run a coworking hub in their building. The second instance is when a landlord is eager to have a Serendipity Labs location in their building, but doesn’t actually want to run it, so they run it for him as he participates merely in the economics side of the partnership.
Serendipity Labs offers a wide range of membership packages to meet the needs and demands of all the individuals and companies interested in working from their office spaces. Private offices are aimed at individuals or small teams of up to 10 members who are in search of some peace and quiet in which they can tackle their daily projects. They can take advantage of the guest reception and concierge services of the coworking hub, have full-time access to high-speed internet, snacks and coffee and can use the conference rooms with prior agreement.
The coworking and mobility office plan targets individuals who are interested in working from an open office. These freelancers and solopreneurs enjoy the same complimentary services as the people taking advantage of the previously mentioned membership package. As an added bonus, members can also opt for extended weekend and 24/7 access, ideal for creatives who are more productive outside the traditional 9-to-5 work schedule.
Those looking to impress their clients or investors can hire conference rooms. Whether you are putting together a small meeting with only a handful of people, would like to host an evening meet-up, or plan on doing something more unconventional and special, Serendipity Labs definitely has some options for accommodating and even catering your event.
Enterprise membership plans are for local businesses that can opt for resident, flexible or swing spaces, the last-named offering completely custom-built features in line with your operations and staff requirements. This package offers a wide range of benefits to companies as well as employees and can be a more cost-effective option than renting an expensive space for your business elsewhere.
