Reasons to Invest

Proven Traction: In the last 90 days we have opened 4 new locations across the San Francisco Bay Area, and have signed 6 new contracts going live by July 1st, 2021, partnering with top real estate providers including Westfield, Brookfield, Simon Group, JLL and Hyatt hotels.
Booming Market Demand: Remote work is here to stay. Covid has shaken up a multi-trillion dollar market and studies have predicted that this shift will give an unprecedented rise to the flexible workspace industry which is a 26billion dollar market today, growing at 15% annually pre-pandemic.
Unique, Scalable Model: ZenSpace revitalizes underutilized commercial spaces by profit-sharing with real estate providers, forging a revolutionary low CAPEX, low OPEX, hyper-scalable model, addressing a market share (SOM) of $4Bn+ worldwide.

"ZenSpace revolutionizes the flexible workspace industry by forging a highly scalable model that decentralizes workspaces by partnering with large real estate operators across different asset classes including retail, airports, coffee shops, hotels and more."

The Problem


With the rise of remote work, it’s more difficult than ever to find an ideal working environment

Source 1Source 2Source 3, Source 4 


Problem 1 - Employers desperately need remote work amenities: 


We believe the rise of remote work has broken the traditional office model leaving employers and remote workers demanding flexible, low-cost workspaces outside of home or office. Current options cannot fulfill the growing needs of remote-workers and have fundamentally broken unit economics.”

Remote Work on the Rise: From saving over an hour in daily commute time to having more flexibility and time with family - many remote workers are not eager to return to the office. In fact, the BBC conducted their Future Forum research and found that only 12% want to return to full-time office work, and 72% want a hybrid remote-office model moving forward1. As we’ve seen from the pandemic, working from home is not ideal for many people, who are seeking quiet, private, fully-equipped spaces. However, the current remote-work options for consumers are limited by high price points, lack of flexibility, and more. Moreover, the business models behind them have limited scalability. 


Employers Looking to Downsize: Meanwhile, employers who traditionally sign 2, 5, or 10-year leases are stuck paying expensive rent even while their offices remained largely empty throughout the pandemic. The pandemic has substantiated the theory that employees can be just as productive if not more when working remotely and that employers can save an average of $11,000 per year by letting employees telework (source 1,2). This has employers looking for flexible office solutions that meet their changing needs and meet their employees' demands for flexible, safe, remote workspaces.


Problem 2 - Commercial real estate providers are losing money with fast-increasing underutilized spaces


Today’s commercial real estate providers are seeing an exodus of retailers and are urgently looking to reinvent their underutilized spaces, generate revenue, and attract new visitors to the mall

Store Closings: Even before the pandemic dealt a heavy blow to the US economy, brick, and mortar retail stores were already suffering from consumers switching to online shopping. In the last 20 years, e-commerce retail sales have gone up more than 22x, according to the U.S. Census Bureau which has led to mass store closings.2  In turn, real estate providers are left with major vacancies and are desperately searching for innovative retail tenants who redefine the ‘shopping mall experience’ and introduce ‘hybrid models' for living, working, shopping, and more.

The Solution


Zenspace creates a mutually beneficial model:

We partner with the world’s top real estate to offer on-demand workplaces for remote workers and revitalize retail properties.

For Remote Workers & Employers: On demand workspace. Anytime, anyplace.

*While ZenSpace has deployed a fully-functioning app, we are still in the beta-testing and development of certain features. For this reason, some of our application screenshots are mockups generated for illustration purposes only.

  • Optimize Space: Transform underutilized space into revenue-generating remote-work amenities that can be booked by the hour or day

  • Generate Revenue: Generate a new, high-margin revenue stream that has the potential to scale over time

The Market


Flexible Real Estate is expected to grow by over 17%

Remote work:

  • Facebook, Apple, Google, and Twitter have indicated that work-from-home is here to stay.3

  • 74% of companies expect employees to continue working remotely after the pandemic, which has employees demanding safe and productive workspaces.4

  • The global market value of flexible workspaces is $26 billion and this number is only expected to rise, with a global average annual growth rate of 15%.4, 4.1 

  • The number of coworking facilities will reach 36,000 by 2025, from 18,000 in 2019. Of these 32,000 about half are coworking spaces, the rest are other types of flexible workspace solutions.44.1

  • The top three largest global players (IWG, WeWork, Servcorp) represent only 18% of the total flexible workspace market.4

Real Estate Market:


  • In the United States, vacancy rates across the retail sector hit an average of 20 percent in the second quarter of 2020. 

  • Physical retail locations, such as shopping malls and free-standing stores, suffered a particularly heavy blow from the COVID-19 pandemic.6 

  • Coresight Research estimates 25% of America’s roughly 1,000 malls will close over the next three to five years. 

  • According to data pulled by Moody’s Analytics REIS, an apartment development in the U.S. is expected to be down 15.6% in the post-Covid-19 world. Office development is set to drop 10%, it said, while retail falls 15.7%.

Our Traction


Partnerships with Vegas Convention Centers and spaces in LA, SF, & NYC

In the last 90 days ZenSpace has:

  • Contracts: Opened 4 new locations, and have signed 6 new contracts with top real estate providers including Westfield, Brookfield, Simon Group, JLL, and Hyatt hotels for upcoming locations.  Launched alpha site in partnership with Westfield in San Jose and began monetizing immediately due to high demand.

  • Optimization: Reduced CapEx by 50% through re-engineered proprietary SmartPod and supply chain. 

  • Technology: Full software backend and front-end built and deployed with new IOT and data platform

  • Partnerships: Secured partnerships with Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield,  JLL, Brookfield Properties, representing the US /Europe’s largest real estate operators and 1000s of Class A retail and commercial properties.

  • Revenue: To date, our lifetime revenue stands at $470k.

What We Do


Provide remote workers and real-estate providers with revenue-generating remote-work amenities

  1. Low CAPEX Infrastructure: We partner and profit-share with real-estate providers to transform underutilized spaces into fast, flexible workspaces that generate a revenue with tech-enabled automated reservations and secure entry.

Technology: We provide a data platform for real estate providers to list, manage and operate spaces remotely while offering remote workers a mobile application to rent spaces by the hour or day, anytime and anyplace.

*While ZenSpace has deployed a fully-functioning app, we are still in the beta-testing and development of certain features. For this reason, some of our application screenshots are mockups generated for illustration purposes only.


2. Customer Acquisition: We sell pre-paid subscription plans at an average cost of $5 per seat per hour for remote-workers, while offering employers up to an additional 40% off when buying in bulk. We are hyper geo-targeted marketing campaigns in the areas surrounding our ZenSpace locations with a combination of high-touch lead generation for enterprises, and social media ads for remote workers.

More information here: www.Zenspace.io/remoteworkers

The Business Model


We believe that ZenSpace has a “Blue Ocean” strategy that combines low-overhead with an extremely novel business model which will allow us to gain market share and increase the total size of the pie.


An asset-light and efficient model that flips the economics of coworking:


  • Low Capex: Profit-sharing allows us to tap into Class A retail space at no fixed cost to Zenspace. Proprietary pods result in an 80%+ reduction in CapEx to open a Zenspace compared to traditional co-working ($33/ sq ft for Zenspace vs. ~$200/ sq ft. for coworking).1

  • Low Opex: $20K annual Opex with 60%+ gross margins at scale due to fully automated spaces, removing the need for staffing. 

  • Strong Projected Financials: $70K upfront investment and $20K annual Opex may yield a projected $1Mn in 5 years consolidated revenue with over $250K returned to the real estate partner and $500k+ cash flow positive.

  • Fast Scalability: Our real-estate partners allow us to scale quickly as they have 5+ properties within a market resulting in instant density.

  • Customer Acquisition: Highly efficient customer acquisition due to organic retail footfall and bottom-up network effects within businesses. We sell prepaid subscription plans at an average cost of $5 per seat per hour to remote workers with an additional 40% off for employers when buying in bulk.

How We Are Different


Source 

Decentralized Franchise: ZenSpace empowers any real estate owner to open their own remote work amenity, at a fraction of the traditional cost. Much like how car-sharing created a tectonic shift within the transport industry.

Low CAPEX & Highly-Scalable Supply: We offer revenue-generating solutions to real estate partners allowing us to tap into Class A retail space and scale supply extremely quickly and at low cost.


Use of 3rd Spaces: We offer remote work amenities exclusively in 3rd spaces - mixed-use spaces in between the home and office, such as malls, airports, and more.

Built For Flexible, Distributed workforce: WeWork, Industrious, and IWG are pivoting from flexible models to provide long-term outsourced offices to improve profitability. We do the very opposite.

Unique, Inexpensive Product: We offer employers and remote workers unique, flexible, and customized remote work solutions and packages to fit every customer need. 

*Comparison data computed based on user experience.

Our Team


We are an award-winning, ambitious team with a proven track record for delivering results.

  • Expansion: We plan to expand over 40 cities across the US in the next 3 years - with each city which is poised to represent a $20 million dollar market or $1 Billion market across the US with similar growth potential in the UK. Our goal is to expand to over 120 cities globally by the end of 2024.

  • Lean Business Model: Through our novel real-estate partnership program we maintain a low CAPEX, low OPEX and a lean business model with very little risk 

  • Make Way for The Sharing Economy of Workspaces: We envision our brand revolutionizing the future of work, becoming the premier source for a flexible, on-demand, remote workspaces in ‘third-spaces’

Time to Sell! 🤑 Email Blast to 100s of Bay Area Employers

3 days ago

Dear ZenSpace Followers, 

This week we spoke with a few enterprise clients - employers in the San Francisco Bay Area, and we are excited by our results!

Here is a preview of the email that went out.

"  🧑‍💻Remote work is here to stay and can be saving you thousands. Get ahead of the curve/transition with ZenSpace.


Guess what? The traditional office model in San Francisco is broken. 

The pandemic accelerated the already tectonic shift towards “Work From Anywhere”. And for good reason. Top employers in the Bay Area - Facebook and the like - have discovered just how easy it is to transition and the huge return on investment it has in overhead savings, employee satisfaction and productivity. 

 

Hesitant to return to office? You're wise.

As the uncertainty of a second lockdown looms and return-to-office anxiety prevails amongst employees, we don’t blame you for forgoing a binding, long-term lease. In fact, studies show that doing so may bear huge unforeseen costs on our teams through employee dissatisfaction and flight.

 

The numbers are in. Remote work is here to stay. 

Traditional office model is out and hybrid and flexible remote work solutions are in. Why? Here are just 3 data-backed reasons why now is the perfect time to transition to remote work:

1. Make your employees happier and more productive.

By and large employees dread returning to long commutes, cubicles in dreary office buildings, and inflexible schedules and cafeteria food. Shocking, right? 

The once status quo is at a critical turning point. Why? According to Stanford studies, remote work dramatically boosts employee happiness and productivity* which is why 74% of companies expect employees to continue working remotely after the pandemic.*

2. Tap into a widened talent pool of workers.

“Work from anywhere” also means tapping into a diverse pool of remote workers who are eager to join companies like yours. Why limit your hiring, when you can access some of the world’s top talent at a fraction of the cost, provided they have internet access.

3. Save big & grow your business with a competitive edge. 

Did you know? Employers save an average of $22,000 per employee a year by letting them telework*. It is no doubt that the Bay Area’s top companies, Twitter, Facebook and the like, have shifted to remote-work policy. It just makes business sense. 

🏁  Now’s the time to get ahead of the curve… but where to start?

We specialize in the transition to remote-work and have been working with companies like yours to save you a lot of money. And Its working well. We have set up 3 fully-equipped workspace solutions in the Bay Area’s top retail destinations - which employees can book from their smartphones, with flexible monthly memberships or drop in rates. And, if you’re looking for your very own space, ZenSpaces offer custom turn-key satellite offices - saving you the hassle and costs associated with re-opening the office. 

ZenSpace is here to help. 

If you’re curious about the remote work model, how to transition, or how much your firm can be saving, we can help. Schedule a free consultation call with our remote work expert today.  "

  2. Stay tuned for more exciting updates on our sales effort
  3. And Invest in the future of work - before it's too late!


Sincerely,

-ZenSpace Team

Guess What? We are Testing The Market with Our First Enterprise Clients!

Dear ZenSpace followers,

We want to share with you a bit about our messaging with you, to show just what all the buzz is about:


📈 Our Marketing Strategy :


  • Segments: Human Resources and VP of Real Estate for San Francisco Bay Area Companies

  • Channels: Email marketing and lead generation through LinkedIn drip-email campaigns

  • Timing: Return to office with a potential second lockdown looming. Emails to HR and VP of Real Estate going out bi-weekly on Tuesday/Wed/Thursday (best CTR rates)

  • Approach: Offer value and generate leads through free consultation. Knowing that this is a high-touch buy-cycle, we want to generate trust and relationships with our clients, and offer ZenSpace solutions specifically catered to their needs. 

  • Positioning: ZenSpace is a local expert in remote work solutions who is working with Bay Area companies to save them money. We offer 3 unique remote work solutions as well as free consultations to ease employers transition to remote work.

  • CTA: Primary-goal is to generate leads, ie. anyone who clicks, placing them in our low hanging fruit basket for further retargeting - saving ZenSpace marketing money down the line.

  • Data capture: On our campaign landing page we track traffic through heat maps, timers and event clicks. We know how much time people spend on our page, how they interact, and how best to retarget. (think: which plan did they click on? are they most concerned about pricing or locations?) 

  • Retargeting: We will actively follow up with all clients who engage with our content, interact with our landing page and or express their interest.

Stay tuned for our campaign and sales report to follow. And don’t forget to Invest in ZenSpace before its too late! 💰

Sincerely,

ZenSpace Team

Exciting New Offerings - High Demand For Remote Work Amenities 🧑‍💻

9 days ago

The Numbers Are In. Remote Work is here to stay! And Demand is HIGH

15 days ago


Dear ZenSpace followers,


Our Time Has Come. Consider a few recent data points: 


  • Nine out of ten organizations are creating hybrid work models. (McKinsey)

  •  88% of workers say they prefer a hybrid model. (Accenture

  • One in three workers are ready to quit if they have to return to the office. (Entrepreneur)

Read more compelling data in the latest Back To Office Report by Grytics.

While this new hybrid model will make employees happier and more productive in the long run, it will also force us to rethink the popular work from anywhere model and severe lack in suitable hybrid on-demand workspaces. That's where ZenSpace comes in.

We are creating our very own Ease the Transition to Remote Work - GuideBook by ZenSpace for our enterprise clients.  Why? We want to leverage our expertise to share knowledge and resources as a means to build trust and credibility when our clients need it most.

Think: "Are you interested in remote work solutions but not sure where to start? Schedule your free consultation call with Zen Space to find out how much you can be saving. At ZenSpace, we have solutions custom tailored to your team’s needs..."

Our Market Demand Has Been Validated - WeWork at Saks - Exciting Movement in the Market

about 1 month ago

Saks, is converting parts of its department stores into co-working offices

Rendering of a SaksWorks space in a former Lord & Taylor store in Manhasset, N.Y.

Saks Fifth Avenue and Wework are collaborating to convert parts of department stores into co-working spaces, a strategy that marries the popularity of remote work with the struggles of bricks-and-mortar retail. Read full story here.

With the massive shortage of workspaces for remote workers, we are seeing major companies like WeWork turning towards department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue to collaborate. Solving a two fold issue - meeting the rapidly evolving needs of tomorrow’s distributed workforce while revitalizing underutilized retail spaces. The future of work is already here and ZenSpace is here for it. 

"A survey of 9,000 workers by consulting giant Accenture PLC earlier this year found that 83% of respondents described a hybrid-work arrangement, with a mix of in-office and at-home work, as ideal."

This move proves ZenSpace's up and running workspaces in malls to be ahead of the curve - fitting of recent, as well as future workspace trends. Invest in the future with ZenSpace!

SafeSpace Lounge marks the second initiative between the two companies, bringing on-demand remote-work solution, safe and productive spaces to San Jose area


As we move forward from the pandemic and toward greater mobility, ZenSpace allows us to provide a new mall experience for our guests who desire to work, shop, dine, and relax – all in the same place. ”

— said Julian Esposito, General Manager of Westfield Oakridge


SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- ZenSpace, pioneer of the on-demand, flexible, smart meeting space today announced arrival today at Westfield Oakridge Mall. Designed in response to COVID-19, the unique SafeSpace lounge solution combines ZenSpace SmartPod™ hardware and cloud technology with strict sanitization protocols to offer guests a fully automated, reservable, safe workspace in which they can conduct business with peace of mind. This marks the second such partnership between ZenSpace and URW in the Bay Area, following the launch of a similar concept at Westfield Valley Fair Mall in Santa Clara, CA.


“We are excited to partner with Westfield Oakridge launch to continue addressing the need for ‘third space’ work areas between home and a traditional office for today’s growing remote and distributed workforce,” said Mayank Agrawal, CEO of ZenSpace. “The URW team shares our vision on how real estate operators can expand their offerings to serve their customer base, and we look working with them to help unlock the potential of people and places in San Jose."


“We are constantly seeking new and relevant ways to enhance our facilities and services for our guests,” said Julian Esposito, General Manager of Westfield Oakridge. “As we continue to move forward from the pandemic and toward greater mobility, ZenSpace allows us to provide a new mall experience for our guests who desire to work, shop, dine, and relax – all in the same place. ZenSpace SmartPods create a quiet space to conduct business without compromising their health and safety.”

The ZenSpace SmartPod represents the future of work - an on-demand workspace solution that facilitates business meetings and conversations anytime and anyplace. A wide array of features makes it state-of-the-art for use in public spaces such as shopping centers and other commercial locations, providing a modern workspace for today’s remote worker and business traveler. Key features include:


• Noise-reducing wall and insulation structure, with double-tempered, laminated glass.


• A mobile and web application that enables shopping center guests and visitors to reserve time in a SmartPod either remotely or on-site.



• Fully tech-enabled space, including WiFi access, power and USB ports.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the trend for knowledge workers to work from remote locations outside the office,” Ted Simon, Chief Revenue Officer at Zenspace noted. “A Spring 2020 Gartner study among company CFO’s and Finance leaders indicates that 74% of companies will shift at least a portion of employees to permanent remote positions following the current Covid crisis, building on the surge in remote work even post-pandemic. The world has changed, and we are happy to be working in partnership with Westfield Oakridge to support this new work reality.”

ZenSpace Lounge Installed & Coming Soon At Westfield Valley Fair

8 months ago

Exciting updates from the Silicon Valley, Westfield Valley Fair Mall! ZenSpace pods are up and running and our lounge will be open for business very soon. We are simply awaiting our COVID 19 Compliance certification which will be in arriving in the coming week(s). We have already seen interest from curious bystanders who are eagerly awaiting to try ZenSpace. In the meantime, we are doubling down on marketing and getting our first customers and loyalty program in full swing. Stay tuned!


ZenSpace Exciting Strategic Development

8 months ago

ZenSpace is changing the way we approach business starting in 2021. We are going lean - we will transition from being owner and operator of the SmartPods to  instead prioritize sales and licensing of our technology to real estate operators and franchise operators - empowering them to generate revenue. How will we do so? We are partnering with companies like FlexSpace and SilenSpace to provide state-of-the-art pods at a fraction of the cost, allowing us to focus on ZenSpace technology - which happens to be our most scaleable and profitable product. ZenSpace will position itself much like Uber in the transportation industry. Rather than purchasing, installating and operating SmartPods - we will provide the technology and marketplace for other manufacturers to boost their business. This strategic development comes at a time where our technology is needed most - tapping into a post-pandemic remote work market which will be growing for the years to come. Stay tuned for more updates!

Business Updates and Campaign Extension

12 months ago

Hello Everyone,


Greetings from ZenSpace. Hope you all have been well, staying safe in these times. First off, we wanted to thank you for your trust and confidence with ZenSpace and in our vision of creating a distributed workspace network, available anytime any place. 

We wanted to share a few updates from a business standpoint based on the progress made thus far in Q3'20. Last month has been one of the most active month for our business. Some key achievements:


  1. We signed partnership with Westfield (URW) for creating a flexible business lounge (Launch date: November 1st, 2020). More information underway leading towards deployment.
  2. We are in advanced conversations with some of the largest commercial real estate companies for their residential, retail and office buildings in SF bay area. 
  3. We anticipate 5 new pop-up co-working spaces up and running  in SF bay area before the holiday season this fall
  4. Recently we launched our technology licensing program for other pod/modular workspace manufacturers. We are in active discussions with two meeting pod and phone booth manufacturers in US and Europe for licensing our (WorkSpace as a Service) technology kits and marketplace. 


While the pandemic brought a pivot to our business shifting from events & conventions industry to commercial real estate, we believe the maximum potential of ZenSpace concept is right ahead of us to be realized with our newest deployments across SF Bay Area. With remote work becoming a norm, the rise of third spaces (A space away from home and permanent office) to support a distributed workforce is imminent. A few industry trends are captured by industry leaders:

Harvard Business Review predicts the future of distributed workspaces. Click here to learn more

In order to allow new investors to participate in our growth and to fund our upcoming deployments while revenue cycle kicks off, we have decided to extend our campaign for some more time. Our extended campaign will allow new investors to join us, while we expand our footprint in new vertical markets including shopping centers, residential, airports and coffee shops.


Thanks again for your belief and we will continue to share new updates on a weekly basis going forth for our deployments across SF bay area.



Warm Regards,
Mayank Agrawal

FAQ update based on questions from investors

about 1 year ago

FAQ update based on questions from investors:


Do you have any patents?

- Yes, we have a utility patent pending for approval. Details can be found here: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/y2020/0128959.html


What is the difference between a SmartPod and a regular pod?

- We offer physical modular workspace pods and a smart technology kit. Compare a refrigerator at your home versus a refrigerated vending machine at an airport. One is a great utility at home but depreciated asset versus a revenue generating asset + amenity at public venues.


How do you ensure that the pods are not misused?

- We use vision AI to detect human presence, left belongings etc and trigger alerts to security staff accordingly. We are not yet applying penalties for users but that is a future consideration as well


How do ensure safety for users in Covid-19 environment?

- We recently announced SAFESPACES as a response to Covid-19. Please find more information here: https://www.solutions.zenspace.io/covid-response

Each of our pods are sanitized based on a combination of technology (software based tracking, notifications etc.). The software protocol is defined on the webpage above.


Customer Testimonials and New vertical markets

Based on questions from Ashutosh, here are some testimonials and real life images of our pods deployed at Microsoft events, resorts and events at Mandalay Bay, Venetian/Sands Expo, LVCC and Moscone Convention centers.
