A recent study conducted by Regus, the leading global provider of flexible workplace solutions, found that 72% of U.S. respondents lack confidence in a business without professional space. Clearly, working from the local coffee shop or in the park just won’t do for start-ups and small business owners trying to attract investments and grow their business.
Regus wants to help by awarding one lucky business a year of fully-furnished office space at any of its more than 400 locations across the U.S. All you have to do is “Show Us Your Office” for a chance to win a brand new one. In addition to the grand prize, nine runners-up will receive a Virtual Office Plus package, which provides contestants with five days of private office time at any Regus business centre in the U.S., a prestigious business address, and professional phone handling services.
From “offices” in airport lounges to broom closets, businesses nationwide can simply “show us your office” (or what’s passing for it) at www.showusyouroffice.com by submitting a photo or video entry highlighting the challenges of their current working situation and a description of how a Regus office would improve their business. Entries will be accepted until October 31, 2010 – only one week left to enter! – and a winner will be announced in November, 2010. Don’t need an office? You can still participate by voting for your favourite entries, helping to advance the 10 entries with the highest votes to a final judging round.
