The post-recession economic recovery in the US has caused a dramatic shift in power. Gone is the dominance of major international cities, replaced by an era in which agile SMEs and ambitious start-ups seek affordable rates and pro-business regulatory environments in smaller cities. In this respect, the city of Pasadena in California is leading example. Located just 25 minutes from Los Angeles, Pasadena offers all of its world-famous neighbour’s advantages, without the associated high rates.
What’s more, Pasadena doesn’t just offer a competitive location. The city is already home to Bank of America, Caltech and NASA, putting your business in excellent company. Of course, this is also something of a sign of things to come; as businesses continue to be priced out of Los Angeles, Pasadena will become a leading economic hub in its own right. For organisations that get ahead of the curve and establish themselves quickly, this will be an advantage, but delays could prove costly.
With a prestigious location and excellent rates, the Old Town Pasadena Center offers a virtual office location and business address from which to get your operation up and running. Alternatively, the Century Square Center is also well worth a look.
As well as virtual offices, our business centres in Pasadena have bookable meeting rooms, where you can pay by the hour, which are ideal for when you need to host a conference or meet a client. Alternatively, for those that need an adaptable workspace that can allow them to remain mobile, we offer co-working spaces with desks available for as long as you require. If you need a permanent space of your own, Regus centres also offer serviced office space to rent.
