Piloto 151, the first coworking space in San Juan, Puerto Rico, is opening its doors to the public this September. Below are the top 10 reasons why we think you should join our community:

1. Work more productively: It’s no secret: Coworking is more productive than working from home or in noisy coffee shops with unreliable Internet and insufficient plugs. In fact, a 2012 study on global coworking trends Deskmag revealed the following results: http://www.deskmag.com/en/1st-results-of-the-3rd-global-coworking-survey-2012

a. 68% of global coworkers mentioned an improved ability to focus since joining a coworking space
b. 64% said they were able to meet deadlines more effectively
c. 62% reported improved work standards
d. 71% mentioned rises in their creativity levels

2. Focus on selling your product / service, we’ll take care of the rest: When you join Piloto 151, you don’t have to worry about meeting your clients or prospects in noisy, unprofessional settings. Our receptionist can coordinate the meeting for you and reserve a conference room. We’ll make sure your clients know where to park (just 1.5 blocks away) and we’ll validate their parking tickets on their way out.  Our conference room is equipped with everything you need to make a good impression. We’ll even arrange for catering services. At Piloto 151, we go the extra mile to make you look good when it matters most.

3. No more leases, no more utility bills: Sure, commercial real estate leases have gone down, but what about those utility bills? Join Piloto and you will never have to worry about cumbersome leases, or utility bills again. Piloto memberships are not only affordable, but are paid on a month-to-month basis with no lease! (See pricing at Piloto Website.) When you join Piloto you spend less, and consequently have more money left on what really matters: product development, innovation and sales.

4. We’re a one-stop shop for all government-related transactions, including tax incentives: When you join Piloto 151, you can offload all the stress of dealing with government permitting and licensing on to us. Our soft-landing packages include incorporation and permitting services as well as incentive eligibility analysis and processing. Puerto Rico has a lot of tax incentives that can benefit your venture – start the process today!
