Questions About Opening or Scaling a Shared Workspace? Let Us Help 12 months ago


In 2009, Satellite Centers opened its first shared workspace in Felton, California. Since then, the company has grown to six profitable spaces around California. The Satellite team also created custom software to run its spaces and, in 2014, made Satellite Deskworks shared workspace software available to other space operators.

Long story short, the Satellite team helped pioneer the shared workspace industry and created a proven workspace software solution. For years, we’ve helped other operators run their spaces more effectively and efficiently. We’re pleased to now offer coworking space consulting services to help other space operators launch, scale or improve their shared workspace.

Our Consulting Services Bucket of Hours Package includes eight hours of consulting from various members of our team in a number of different areas, including business management, marketing, sales, operations, automation and workspace IT.
