Virtual tenant space is now being offered at the Urban Chamber of Commerce Business Development Center, sponsored by the city of Las Vegas Redevelopment Agency, to meet the needs of a proliferation of online and at-home businesses. Companies that don’t need physical space, but could benefit from the center’s other services, can now apply to be a “virtual tenant.”
Previously, the Business Development Center primarily focused on offering below-market-rate office and industrial space, along with support services and mentoring assistance, for startup companies. The internet age has reduced some companies’ need for physical space, although they still require a number of the benefits and amenities available at the center, including high-speed Internet and Wi-Fi connection, meeting and training facilities featuring telephone conferencing capabilities, office equipment, business development advisors and more.
The cost to a virtual tenant, which has need of these services but not the physical space, is less than the amount paid by a tenant using onsite office space and furnishings.
The program is located at 1951 Stella Lake St. in West Las Vegas. The 17,100-square-foot facility is located across from the FBI regional headquarters.
Business owners interested in participating in the program need to complete an application and meet certain qualifications. Application forms are available at www.urbanchamber.org. For further details, contact Summer Rabb at 648-6222.
