Ooosh For Startups helps new businesses make their mark

Its space is more than just desks and chairs.

Ooosh For Startups, which is founded by entrepreneurial enthusiasts, describes itself as a coworking space in Hong Kong that connects business and tech talents. Ooosh notes as well that it nurtures startups "to grow from 0 to 1, giving them more than just desks and chairs."
“We have managed to build a workspace that is cozy enough for people to mingle, but also practical enough for raising productivity,” says Jeffrey Cheng, co-founder, Ooosh For Startups.

According to Cheng, Ooosh For Startups was designed for coworking purposes, with an emphasis on the balance between space, accessibility & privacy. They took a minimalistic yet practical approach on design direction, with the space featuring inspirational decorations to motivate entrepreneurs in Ooosh For Startups' space.

Ooosh For Startups is a 7600sq.ft coworking space located in the heart of Lai Chi Kok – an up and coming startup district in Hong Kong that is removed from the hustle bustle (and sky high rents) of Central, but not yet in the wilderness that is HK Science Park, says Cheng.

Ooosh For Startups' design was led by Ison Cheng, Managing Director of i&i Interior Design, who has over 19 years of expertise in interior design and has worked on numerous exquisite projects across commercial spaces, residential flats & retail premises.

According to Cheng, the biggest obstacle in the development of Ooosh For Startups were related to soundproofing and noise levels. To overcome these obstacles, Ooosh For Startups developed soundproof walls, greenery partitions in their open space, and noise cancelling partitions in meeting rooms. They also encourage common courtesy when making phone calls in their open space.
