Everyone and every business was affected by the ongoing worldwide health crisis in 2020. These difficulties were no different for Nao Group. While the effect has been profound for the company, they are heading into 2021 with a positive outlook and some very exciting prospects.
"The way we work is changing, and it’s happening all over the world. While we always knew this was the case, 2020 has made this more important than ever before," says Panny Lawrence, CEO of Nao Group. "As flexibility reigns supreme, coworking spaces are transforming us from 9-to-5 to anywhere, anytime. The JLL Global Market Perspective report predicts that by 2022 there will be over 5.1 million coworking members annually. Nao’s mission is to be at the centre of that change, for a sector that has grown by over 200% globally in the past 5 years."
Nao Group currently has buildings across London. With this forecast of growth over the next few years, expanding their portfolio is next for the Group.
"Nao means 'there’s still more' in Japanese and for us, we truly believe there is still plenty more to come: we're ambitious, dynamic and rapidly growing in the UK, with future ambitions of global expansion," says Panny Lawrence, CEO of Nao Group.
Nao Group noticed that there was a gap in the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the UK, specifically in London. Nao is working to offer a solution to the issues within the physical and social infrastructure for entrepreneurs, freelancers, and SMEs.
"Our mission is to become an innovator of commercial properties by creating shared spaces that result in positive social change for the communities we exist in," says Panny Lawrence. "We set out to become an integral part of the communities we operate in, leaving a positive mark through refurbishing and enhancing old properties, and through encouraging local entrepreneurship and knowledge-sharing."
The difficulties that the world faced in 2020 aren't going to hold Nao Group back. 2021 is going to be the best year yet for this fast-growing company. Learn more at naogroup.com.
