With COVID, remote work has become the norm. This has provided us with the freedom of working from home. Companies like Microsoft is allowing its employees to work from home permanently. But working from home tends to become more and more challenging with productivity level dropping drastically due to distractions from kids, pets, unstable internet and unproductive environment.

This single experience has caused many to embark on the search for office space that can provide the necessary office amenities (eg: fast internet, silent booths, meeting rooms and a productive environment) at an affordable price and without the need for a long term commitment.

But looking at the current structure of co-working spaces and private offices, this is not the case as most office rentals are very expensive, requires long term rental agreement, meaning you will be stuck at the same office almost forever!

The Future of Workspace is “Flexibility”.

Flexibility in the workspace is all about giving people the freedom to chose where to work from without limitation on location and long term contract. It involves making it possible for people to find workspaces around them, be able to use them without paying too much for using different workspaces.

If there’s one thing the pandemic has revealed, it’s that people don’t want to be locked into rigid long-term contracts for office space when there are alternatives that are more conducive to the changing needs of their business and employees. People want the freedom to chose where to work from, at any time without committing to a long term contract and paying too much for it.

In these times of uncertainty, it is difficult to jump into a decision which will bind you to a long term commitment or contract. We understand this, that is why we give you the power of flexibility to adapt and decide as you go. No long term contract, no commitment, and you can cancel anytime. Saving you time so you can focus on what matters, which is to get your work done.

Sustainability in the Workspace Industry:

There are approximately over 35,000 flexible workspaces in the entire world, which represents 521 million square feet of flexible space, which brings us to the question: How can we effectively put into use the already existing workspaces?

At FlexTyo, we don’t intend to build new workspaces as there are already a lot of them in the market. Rather, we strive to achieve sustainability in the workspace industry by helping workspace providers put to effective use their already existing, but underutilized office spaces and infrastructure.

Kiuas F20 questions:

What was your childhood dream job?

I always wanted to be a doctor as a child. Because my mum is a nurse and I love to see her take care of patients and treat them. Watching her do her job made me want to follow her footsteps, even though I’m not a big fan of blood hehehe.

If you would get 1 billion euros right now, what would you do?

- Invest in FlexTyo so we can recruit more staffs and scale growth

- Build an acceleration/incubation hub for startups

- Invest in Fast growing Startups across the globe

Choose: A world without smartphones vs a world without food delivery. Why?

I can survive a world without food delivery for sure. I can’t remember when last I order for a food delivery, if I decide to eat out I love to go to the restaurants and feel the environment while eating.

But a world without a smartphone is unimaginable at this point.

If you had a dollar for every idea you have come up with, how much money would you have?

Maybe 100

Ideal date: drinks or coffee? Why?

Drink for sure, especially scotch. I’m not a coffee person, so I hardly drink coffee
