Office Evolution provides a flexible professional work-space for businesses & entrepreneurs with office space, conference rooms, and flexible co-working space!

Greensboro has been part of the green movement for over 50 years, and they’re here to help local entrepreneurs and professionals put a little more “green” in their pockets.

Here are a few things you can expect from our Office Evolution location serving the Greensboro area:

Private Office Space:

This brand new Office Evolution location offers several fully furnished offices.  With our flexible options, you’ll be able to rent an office space for as little or as long as you need.  Office space options include:

  • Internal:

    One of the best options for those who want an office space where they can focus and get work done.

  • External:

    External offices are perfect for a couple of things.  They are a great way to impress your clients, and they’re also a great place to put your “nose to the grindstone” and drive your business forward.

  • Temporary:

    Perfect for the “upon occasion” meeting, interviewing, contract signing, or need to impress.  Rent the temporary office space for as little as 15 minutes or all day long.  The flexibility is yours.

  • Virtual Office:

    One of the most flexible and dynamic options available – truly built for today’s booming businesses.  The Professional Plan Plus comes with professional phone answering, conference room access, coworking access, a locking mailbox and much more…it’s truly a great option.

For a remote worker, the kitchen table and coffee shop can seem like an affordable workspace option, but the benefits of working in a professional office can’t be matched, especially with the additional resources we offer.
