An online marketplace called Occupyd has launched.
Occupyd connects businesses and individuals searching for workspace with companies looking to monetise their extra capacity
The brainchild of 29 year-old founder, Callum McPherson, Occupyd caters to a number of industries across the UK including hospitality, hairdressing and beauty salons, as well as workshops, photography studios and event spaces.
Callum comments: “A large number of organisations have been affected by the on-going pandemic, which has had a huge impact on their bottom-line. We’re driven to make life a little easier by facilitating relationships between businesses on the hunt for workspace, and those that have extra capacity, so they can help each other out and continue to grow.
“We talk about the ‘hidden market’ – something which is already there, but people are unaware of. Monetising after-hours capacity, which would otherwise be empty, or renting out supplementary workspace could be a goldmine for some companies. Many of us are sitting on something valuable – we just don’t know it.”
