We think of ourselves as a visionary startup, whose goal is to tackle the global challenge of empty or underused commercial spaces, because as the pandemic has shown us the way we are working, shopping and dining is changing. However, we know how inconvenient the process of flexible rental is perceived among property managers. So that's where we come into play! There is a win-win situation for both sides but also for society.
We see the emerging trends in commercial real estate and we want to support all initiatives seizing the opportunities in this new commercial landscape.
But which tangible steps can we take to avoid commercial spaces being empty or under-used? Our solution has been to build a platform that makes the rental process smooth and efficient and allows flexibility when it comes to how long businesses want to rent a space.
Why the Hermit Crab
The name “Paguro” comes from “Paguroidea” which the crustacean family the hermit crab belongs to.
A hermit crab inhabits a succession of shells in its lifetime, in a stunning variety of shapes and sizes. Like a hermit crab, many businesses will outgrow their work and event spaces many times in their journey. Businesses are also increasingly open-minded and flexible to different workspaces.
