Kofisi, provider of flexible office work space across Africa, have opened a new office site in Karen
This will serve the growing market that has been witnessed in Karen while at the same time positioning itself for new clientele to meet rising demand
“As a result of population growth, and infrastructure development, affluent suburbs like Karen are evolving and a need for flexible office work space is growing.” said Kofisi CEO Michael Aldridge.
We are currently in six countries, our vision is to open in 25 cities, representing a market size of 11 million users. Wherever we are, we continue to set new standards by combining high end collaborative African design with global know how and state of the art integrated technology.’’
According to the Finance Manager Cadbury Kenya Ltd, Joseck Angote the new offices will help meet the growing demand businesses have for greater agility.
“We value Kofisi’s knowledge of how to support businesses to operate successfully in the local market. Their focus on providing a sophisticated space, integrated technology and leading service, allows us to be more agile, and to concentrate on the core of our business,” said Angote
Client needs in Africa
Across the Continent, Kofisi’s clients are choosing the option of flexible workspace because it benefits them at all stages of their journey. Clients who are entering, expanding or entrenching can be flexible about the number of desks they rent, they can take on more, or reduce, desks as required. This makes the Kofisi business model in Africa both sector and cycle-agnostic.
This trend is supported by Knight Frank’s report, “Kenya Market Update 1st Half 2019” which highlights a trend that is happening around the world, where the increasing popularity of choosing a flexible workplace has overtaken the more traditional office rental.
This model has particularly struck a chord with SME’s, maturing start-ups and multinationals, where flexibility and cost effectiveness – not only in the number of desks, but also in the length of lease – is highly attractive.
