#DellSMBChat shows agile business needs more than good Wi-Fi and office dogs

#DellSMBChat: The changing ways we work

The way that small businesses and startups work in 2016 is changing.

Last week, BetaKit hosted a Twitter chat with Dell, inviting other industry leaders to explore the benefits of remote and shared working spaces for productivity. It was clear from the conversation that agile businesses have new needs and new opportunities that must be addressed: a desk and a Wi-Fi connection simply aren’t enough.

Below you’ll find commentary from Upverter, Breather, WeWork, Lighthouse Labs, and many other #DellSMBchat participants on the changing ways we work. Don’t hesitate to offer your own opinion in the comments section below!

Agile businesses have a lot of options in 2016 to get work done.



Shared working spaces can provide multiple benefits.

Workplace culture can be as important as facilities.

Shared workspaces come with their own challenges.

Opinions on the value of coffee shops are mixed.


Okay, office dogs are pretty great.
