Regus backs business in Botswana with launch of first centre

Flexible workplace provider expands footprint to 17 countries in Africa and 101 globally, and offers local companies a smarter way to work

Regus, the global flexible workplace provider, has opened its first business centre in Botswana, at Gaborone itowers. The launch links Botswana to a global business network covering 101 countries. As well as supporting the growth ambitions of companies in Gaborone, it will also facilitate foreign investment in Botswana.

The new Regus business centre in Botswana enables companies to use high-quality professional workplaces on a flexible basis. Rather than having to commit to long-term fixed leases, companies enjoy a more agile and affordable way of operating, which is more conducive to growth.

The international-standard workspace and facilities at the new Regus business centre allow local companies to project a professional and ambitious image to customers and contacts. They can also use Regus’s wider network as a platform to expand into new markets. Following the launch in Botswana, this network encompasses 43 locations in 17 countries across Africa, and more than 1800 centres globally.

Equally, the availability of Regus’s flexible, ready-to-use offices in Gaborone will encourage foreign investors to explore the possibilities in Botswana. With no need to manage their corporate premises themselves, they can focus on core business, whilst enjoying the flexibility to quickly scale their presence up or down.

Nuno Condinho, Regus Area Director, commented: “With this launch in Gaborone, Regus now operates 43 locations in Africa. That’s 43 different options for companies to generate new revenue and forge local partnerships in a region that is truly exciting. We are optimistic about the prospects in Botswana and other African countries through drivers such as infrastructure development, foreign investment and growing entrepreneurship, and we urge companies to examine these opportunities.

“Regus’s strategy is to further increase the support we offer to companies, by further growing our presence in Africa and, moreover, globally. Our target is to open at least 300 centres by the end of 2014 which will assist all of our customers to become more successful.”

About the centre

The first Regus centre in Botswana is at Gaborone itowers, the tallest building in Botswana, in the capital’s new central business district. Built to high technical and green specs, the building is close to the High Court and Court of Appeal. The Regus business centre occupies the prestigious ground and first floors of the building and features private and day offices, meeting rooms, walk-in business lounge, virtual office services, and professional admin and reception support. There is reliable, high-speed wifi throughout the centre
