In Acceler8, we believe in the saying “The more, the merrier!” This is why we are opening another center to help us expand the Acceler8 family! That’s right! In addition to our centers in 111 Paseo, and in Finman Center, we’re opening a new coworking space here in Makati!
Acceler8, together with PHINMA Properties, a local real estate developer, will be opening our very first coworking space in Rockwell, Makati. The coworking industry in the Philippines is still a developing one, and to have such a space in one of the epicenters of business in the Philippines is certainly a huge step in expanding the industry and introducing people to it.
Mikko Barranda, CEO and co-founder of Acceler8 expressed his excitement with the partnership, “Coworking as a concept is relatively new to Asia, but we have been one of the first companies to hinge on the fast-growing business of flexible office spaces. We provide business solutions such as serviced office suites, coworking seats, virtual office plans, meeting rooms, spaces to hold events, and much more. We are excited to work and learn form one of the top developers in the country Phinma Properties and see how we can grow the industry together.”
The coworking industry is still young and it is still slowly developing and evolving to cater to the needs of a fast-paced work industry. According to the president of PHINMA properties, Julian Concepcion,“We understand that employees need spaces and connections to empower them to collaborate and innovate. We believe that flexible office spaces are a response to the changes in market demand around shifts of how people live and work.”
This is not the first time that Acceler8 has partnered with a well-respected conglomerate in the country. In 2017, Ayala Land Offices partnered with Acceler8 in their first venture in the coworking industry, Clock In, Ayala’s first coworking facility. This partnership was very much groundbreaking because it is the first time that a corporation has worked with a coworking brand. Even better, this partnership was a stunning success for both companies. In just two months, Acceler8 has managed to reach 100% occupancy in Clock In’s coworking facilities, closing both coworking deals and private office suites.
The new Acceler8 coworking space will be located at the 5th floor of PHINMA Plaza along Hidalgo Drive in Rockwell Center, Makati. Stay tuned for more updates on the new center! Who knows, maybe we’ll give you a peek of what we have in store in Rockwell.
