In just this decade, Pakistani freelancers and entrepreneurs have shown that they too have what it takes to become the best of the best. Despite limited support and resources, the Pakistani IT community knows that it needs to do a lot more in order to facilitate the growing participation of youth in the country’s startup industry.
These future entrepreneurs need the best resources, places, and networking opportunities so that they can interact with minds who are as hungry for solving problems and achieving success as they are.
To foster this a culture of continuous innovation, co-working spaces have stepped in. One of these co-working spaces, TheDesk, happens to offer a lot more than others.
It promises to fast-track the best innovators and entrepreneurs of today, by connecting them with companies and businesses that can leverage their skills, services and products for the optimum results.
TheDesk is supported by UnitedSol, a multi-specialty software company located in Islamabad.
UnitedSol Pvt. Ltd is one of Islamabad’s first software development companies, and the founding entity behind FMEextensions, an International Magento Solutions provider. Within the umbrella of UnitedSol, the organization has expanded its network of companies, providing innovative solutions to Pakistan’s business sector and providing a coherent and measurable pathway for Pakistani entrepreneurs to follow.
What Is TheDesk?
TheDesk.pk was founded on the ideals of servicing Pakistan’s growing community of freelancers, entrepreneurs, overtime workers and other types of independent and self-employed workers.
The mission was to offer the best facilities, amenities, and features in the most competitive rates under one roof and help workers connect with new prospects in a vibrant atmosphere.
When all requisites were thoroughly checked and approved, the first office setup was established in I-9/3, supplementing Islamabad’s largest commercial sector with a strategically located co-working space.
Taking the location, its vicinage, availability of Metro buses and parking facilities were among the core objectives of the setup. To make sure the setup was on par with international standards, the interior is custom designed to satisfy the latest ergonomic needs of a modern-day office.
From high-speed Wi-Fi and dedicated desks, to un-compromised air-conditioning and complimentary tea, everything was carefully vetted to promote a dynamic co-working ecosystem that offers affordable, flexible and hassle-free occupancy options.
Diverse Occupancy Options
UnitedSol analyzed the unique requirements different independent workers have in their daily work operations. By Integrating these different work variables, the company designed tiered plans to cater every category of independent workers, starting from Part-Time, Dedicated Desk, to Private Office and Executive Suite.
