It’s a dog eat dog world out there, and that’s especially true for business owners.

Industry leaders know that you have to be able to adapt to the times in order to stay ahead of the pack, and businesses who fail to do so can often get left behind.

Then there’s the small matter of being locked into something like a terrible lease, which can quickly become the metaphorical noose around one’s neck.

Landlords aren’t usually too keen to let tenants go without a fight, so many businesses just resign themselves to the fact that they’re in for the long haul and try and work around that.

Here’s the thing – your business changes, and your business needs change, but you are stuck in a deal that you wish you could wangle out of.

That’s where Inner City | Ideas Cartel come in because, for the right world-class tenants, they’re willing to go the extra mile.

For a limited time, Cape Town’s premier co-working collective is offering to buy impact tenants out of their current lease. They want to expand and diversify their tenant base, and they need the best partners possible for their members to take advantage of their services.

Here’s founder, Schuyler Vorster:

The concept of coworking is not just about sharing a space, it’s about creating on-hand business opportunities between cohabiting members. Their success is our success.

Therefore, if you’re a freelancer, founder in the tech scene, the advertising industry, an accounting firm, a member of the legal community, in HR or recruitment, we would like to meet with you to investigating buying you out of your current lease, allowing you to join our network as quickly and as effortlessly as possible.

If you are happy in your current office or coworking space then we would like to explore jointly hosting networking events. We can’t let a little thing like a lease get in the way of good businesses meeting one another.

The IC | IC offers scalable workspace for growing businesses that need a community conducive to productivity and opportunity, this is facilitating both.

You know these guys mean business, too, because they have a third building set to open at The Foundry in Green Point in a matter of weeks.

If you like innovation, by the way, you should check out their new Micro Office Pod designs, called the SOLOffice, which are already proving very popular around Cape Town.

If it keeps me from having to make small talk with strangers, where do I sign?

Inner City | Ideas Cartel’s forward-thinking approach is just one reason to check out their offerings. A private gym, baristas, barbers and tailors – well, those are some of the others:
