Starting your own business can be scary, but with the right space and the right attitude anything is possible.

Worq presents budding entrepreneurs with the unique opportunity of enjoying the perks of a full office / retail space, at a fraction of the cost; with the added advantage of being able to meet and mingle with like-minded entrepreneurs, who are equally driven and as passionate about taking their businesses further.

Says Deron Howard, Client Manager at Worq, “Our aim is to encourage entrepreneurs of Pietermaritzburg and surrounds to dream big and achieve their business goals by giving them a launchpad from where their businesses can take flight.”

“Entrepreneurs are integral to our nation’s growth and supporting our entrepreneurs translates into more jobs, the betterment of the community and eventually the strengthening of our nation’s GDP. It is this foresight that propels us to provide businesses with flexible and affordable packages as well as develop new and exciting business opportunities, such as our highly successful After Worq Market,” continues Deron.

Tattoo artist Wesley Cannon joined our Worq family in November 2019 and launched his new studio, The Night Owl Tattoo Studio, on the night of our very first ever After Worq Market giving his business instant exposure.

Says Wes, “I love it here at Worq. This space is ideal for my tattoo studio as its centrally located and very easy to find ~ I just have to tell my client that I’m located at the “graffiti building” on Victoria Road and they know it straight away. Everyone has seen this place and is fascinated by the look and the vibe of the building.

Events like the After Worq Market are a real boost for business and I’ve been able to build my customer base since moving here. Deron is especially friendly and helpful and is always ready to assist with anything.”

The communal space at Worq has been a delight to work in. A quiet, spacious, and creative environment which easily facilitates my daily operations. In addition, being within walking distance of great coffee (Hall’s Retail Coffee Bar) is such a delight

Our company moved into the Worq building in June 2020. Up until now the fascination of our clients and visitors is always expressed at the décor of the building and the refreshing difference that it has to a ‘normal’ office working space. It is such a pleasure to be around such great minds and creative individuals. Deron and Eric are also the friendliest people around and are always willing to help in any way that they can. Being a part of the Worq community is great

With The Worq Shoppe going digital soon all I can say is that now not even the sky is the limit for the potential of how far and wide our products can reach. The Worq Shoppe is an extension of my colourful nature, my love for crafts, and my ethos of good vibes. With the guidance and never-ending support from my daughter, Deron, and the Worq team I can’t help but love every day I walk into The Worq Shoppe to get rocking!

The space is amazing, it’s easily manageable, I can come and go as I want, and manage my business on my own terms. I would recommend that small businesses looking for a space to rent, comes to take a tour of the Worq building
