Since opening in October,2010, more than 50 start-ups have joined the Queens business center, which caters to small businesses and solo professionals. (See the new popular new video about the Executive Office Center,"Down with Virtual Offices!"
"Virtual office services are the perfect fit for start-up companies, which have to operate on a very lean budget," according to Executive Director Jack Blumner. "It's also a perfect fit for Queens, because the Queens economy is largely composed of small businesses."
"Many start-ups operate out of the house - like the legendary Steve Jobs, who started Apple, Inc. in his his garage. But the garage isn't the ideal place to meet with clients or prospective clients. That's where we come in," said Mr. Blumner. "A virtual office service plan at the Executive Office Center allows you to meet people in one of our beautiful meeting rooms, or in the executive conference room, on as-need basis, at a decidedly nominal cost."
"We also offer such services as mail acceptance, and personalized telephone answering services, " he added.
"Furthermore, certain types of businesses are regulated by the state or by the city of New York, and are required to have a commercial business address," said Mr. Blumner. "Electricians, for example, who want to work within the five boroughs of New York, must have a commercial business address within city limits to meet NYC Department of Buildings licensing requirements."
"Certain other businesses, such as home care agencies, are regulated by the state, and are also required to have a legal NYC commercial address if they want to operate within the five boroughs. The Executive Office Center offers the most economical way of fulfilling those licensing requirements," said Mr. Blumner.
