Do any NYC co-work/incubator spaces offer back-office support?

Hi All,

My founders and I are on the lookout for a place in NYC to call home, and one of the criteria we're seeking out is a space that has some sort of back-office support. This would entail simple things as mail delivery/services but could also includes more complex services such as accounting support.

If you have any suggestions, we'd greatly appreciate the help!

Cheers,
Matt

Matt, Mail delivery, yes. Accounting etc not that I know of...though WeWork has service providers in the community who are often really conducive to a startup's budget. Hope that helps-- Best, Cynthia

Matt,

I've been to almost every coworking space in NY. Almost all of them offer mail and phone type services. Most don't offer accounting services and I would suggest that you don't tie the two together. There are a number of companies that will take care of backoffice services, like accounting and HR type things for you. As you grow, your space needs will change and you want to make sure you can move without anything holding you back or having to transfer to a new provider.

Check out https://www.backops.co/ and then pick a space that is has the flexibility you want and location/cost that works best. Let me know if you want a run down of the different spaces. I'd be happy to suggest a few based on your needs.

Hi Matt:

I'm working on starting a new coworking space on the upper west side and am definitely considering offering backoffice support, if it makes business/economic sense. I'm working on the financials and funding details now.

If you want to be kept in the loop about our space (if the location might work for you) then you can join my "upper west side coworking meetup" or just add yourself to the mailing list for the space at helixnyc.com.

If I hear of anything else in my travels, I'll let you know!
