Bold /bəʊld/ – a person showing a willingness to take risks; confident and courageous.
Welcome to the 'new economy'
The world of work has changed.
PEOPLE AREN’T TIED TO THEIR DESKS ANYMORE
Welcome to the new economy, led by a new breed of risk takers. We are natural problem solvers and passionate about making a difference in the world. We’re techie, we’re savvy, and it’s because we embrace mobile technology that our work is not restricted to a static location. We want to stay plugged in outside the office and stay productive because we’re highly motivated. Our work happens everywhere: At home, on a screen, a plane, over lunch, and faster than ever. We have the freedom to work on our terms and we do business with people thousands of miles away online and on-demand.
We object to the outdated logic of permanent offices and expensive long-term leases, and instead opt for the flexibility that mobile working enables.
THAT'S WHY BOLD WAS INVENTED
Bold gives us superpowers to impress, inspire and close deals without the heavy bottom line cost or hassle….in an “office in your pocket” kind of way.
Bold gives us control and flexibility with beautiful spaces in the right locations, that can be booked by the hour, day, or longer and look and feel inspiring, with good lighting, space to breath, tech that works, with no distractions!
Bold builds spaces that focuses on a work-life blend, our design expresses this focus explicitly through our innovative solutions for free-flowing social areas and meeting spaces.
Bold locations are creative environments designed to inspire innovative thinking and collaboration, while maintaining a healthy balance between private meetings and flexible working.
