FastFive is one of the largest players among coworking space providers in Korea. Their native understanding of Korean customers’ needs has earned the trust of a lot of startups. We have visited their coworking space near Gangnam station right across the street from their main competitors to see what makes them special.
It is clear that FastFive is very responsive to the needs of their customers. Hot desks are not the most popular option here in Gangnam, so FastFive has decided at this particular branch to give more space to those who prefer stationary desks or a private atmosphere of a small office.
Modern industrial designs and stunning views make you feel like you are working in Manhattan, but for a far more fair price. FastFive recognizes the desire for professionalism in its members and has no limitations to use their meeting rooms, that can be conveniently booked through an app.
- Neighborhood: In Gangnam, your office speaks for you. The size, the style, the view from your window, and, specifically, your location all count to make an impression. Getting an office at Gangnamdae-ro is like getting a top-shelf placement, but for offices.
- Strictly professional: FastFive doesn’t put events high on the list of priorities. There are occasional networking parties going on at one of the branches. But considering how big FastFive’s network is, it is unlikely you will get to know your neighboring startup community that easily.
FastFive is a coworking space that doesn’t sell you gimmicky things. It is very straightforward with a simple, yet with the essential number of amenities, that are presented on a top-notch level. However, the fact that they shy away from doing more event seems like a waste of potential to create a community among the members.
