A Global Co-Working Space Where Work, Innovation and Connectivity Collide
Co-working is more than just providing a shared office for remote workers. It transforms the most essential and expensive business expense — the workspace — into a service that benefits both entrepreneurs and individuals. The space-as-a-service model reduces the need for a company to bear the whole expense of maintaining an office by themselves and increases workforce flexibility.
Taking this already innovative model to the next level, The 5th Floor aims to not only provide a space, but a place for professionals to connect and grow their businesses, locally, regionally and globally.
After two years of effort and dedication, The 5th Floor has successfully opened four locations — Switzerland, Orlando, Florida, Puerto Rico, and Malaysia (coming soon). The vision is to leverage the company’s existing global,corporate connections and have a location on each continent, with over 30 locations in the next 5 years. Below you will find more information on each location, as well
