With all the negative things being said about millenials, there’s one thing that I believe we are doing well i.e Changing the future of work. Glassdoor ranks the top workplaces with the happiest workers and it is no surprise that Google and Facebook come in the top 5. One thing the companies have in common is a nice workspace. There’s nothing like working in a space that fosters and inspires creativity. If you cant afford to rent a space of your own, you’re i’m luck as there are now a lot of co-working spaces popping up in Lagos. Here are the 5 that have caught our attention.
Capital Square is first up on our list not just because they are the host for our Lagos classes or that their logo is yellow like ours at least part of ours. Their space, I find is appealing. The little pops of yellow will send Monday blues away don’t you think… They have 2 locations, one in Ikoyi and the other in Lekki. Their prices range from a daily NGN2000 and monthly NGN35,000 for hot desking to a dedicated private office from NGN100,000 monthly.
P.s: Hot Desk simply put is a millenial term for temporary desk.
VENIA BUSINESS HUB
This Lekki Phase 1 office space is a 9-5er’s dream come true. It somewhat feels like a playground for creatives and the business savvy alike. The break out areas in Venia Business Hub are probably my favorite spaces in this office and are what millenial offices are made of. Nothing like a corner to go off to to relax or to do even more work because there’s only so many hours that a millenial can remain behind a desk for.
Cranium one is a winner for me in Aesthetics. This Victoria Island workspace looks very cosmpolitan and chic. The wood elements and the exposed brick give a downtown New york vibe.
Nothing like working somewhere that has motivational posts on almost every wall. It may seem a bit much but the truth is even though you’re used to seeing these posts, one day you look up from your desk tired and almost quitting and that “It always seems impossible until it’s done” inscription will get you through that day. V8 charges from 45k for hot desking to 75k for dedicated office space. Its also a favorite for me because of the outdoor space, nothing like a little sunshine and fresh breath of air for a break out session in the middle of the day.
If an open floor plan works for you then the Cre8 space in Cafe Neo may just be it! I believe this is best for people looking to network as Cafe Neo is fast becoming a hub for people who like to work and hang out at the same time… If that doesn’t say millenial then i don’t know what does.
Hope you enjoyed our list, pls share in the comment section if you have any addition you feel will make for a great shared workspace in Lagos!
