It was announced today that Glandore has opened a new co-working space at Arthur House in Belfast following a €1m investment. The Irish provider of flexible workspace has a total of more than 2,500 desks between eight office locations in Belfast and Dublin.
The new Belfast co-working space will provide desk space for up to 70 members and is aimed at startup entrepreneurs, small businesses and FDI companies taking their first steps into Northern Ireland.
International companies who started their Irish operations in Glandore workspace include Worldpay, Rapid 7, Facebook, Twitter and Dropbox, while overseas investors such as Tullet Prebon, Cayan, Bamboo Rose and Bazaarvoice are among the current or former members of its offices in Belfast.
Speaking this week, Founder of Glandore, Michael Kelly said, "Glandore has operated in Dublin since 2001 and in Belfast since 2006. As companies north and south prepare contingency plans for Brexit, Glandore provides a readymade solution. New office set up in Dublin or Belfast can be arranged by the Glandore team within hours rather than days."
He added, "The co-working industry is rapidly expanding and the demand for more of this sort of flexible space in Belfast is increasing. By opening this fantastic new space, we are now able to offer the full spectrum of office accommodation to our members, from one part time desk right through to offices for 70 people."
