Episode 11 of “Commute with our CEO” video series is now live! Laurent explains how Pacific Workplaces and CloudVO started.
It started when Laurent worked for a large Silicon Valley company last century. He realized the workspace that they provided to the thousands of employees was just not adequate. That is what led him to co-found Pacific Workplaces in 2003. The company was created to provide professional space, meeting space, collaborative space; a space for people to cowork and build a work community. However, he also wanted to provide members with access to workspace on-demand wherever they were, which is what led the team to start CloudVO in 2009, providing on-demand workspace and virtual office space. Today, CloudVO offers on-demand workspaces and virtual office spaces at over 600 locations worldwide.
