Businesses big and small, Sandton Central is the address of choice for them all

Sandton Central is renowned as a powerhouse of large corporate headquarters, but don’t be fooled into thinking that it is only business giants that prize having offices here. In fact, Sandton Central is also the address of choice for an exciting array of small businesses, and even the smallest and most agile of them.

South Africa’s financial capital is home to increasingly more spaces catering to the global co-working boom. These spaces provide plug-and-play, amenity-laden, community-rich environments often through affordable membership schemes.

From coffee shop creatives to out-of-office executives, start-ups to home-based independents, travelling professionals to mobile moguls and even project teams and new corporate divisions, the variety of businesses and business people embracing co-working is on the rise.

While these co-working spaces offer numerous nimble amenities, when they are located in Sandton Central they also place their clients at a tremendous advantage. These small businesses find themselves in the centre of opportunity at the heart of the most important business and financial node in South Africa and plausibly sub-Saharan Africa. Not only is Sandton Central South Africa’s commercial capital, it is its cosmopolitan centre of trade, ideas and lifestyle.


Here are a few Sandton Central co-working spaces that stand out from the crowd:
