KMC - Inside The Philippine's Coworking giant.
"We're changing how office space is designed, used, and helping the startup ecosystem [Thrive]."
-Michael McCullough, Co-Founder & Managing Director.
KMC offers office space in the Philippines designed for entrepreneurs, freelancers, or companies of any size or stage. Our services include co-working spaces or private offices and a business accelerator program in several locations at Metro Manila, Cebu, Clark, and Iloilo.
We've been paying close attention to the correlation between having an incubator program and being successful in the Coworking industry.
We know it is the business model of the future and we want to promote as much as we can.
As a coworking space, you have everything you need for an incubator program. Infrastructure, manpower, and connections. There should be a member selection process but nothing out of the ordinary.
Michael McCullough has been passionate about the real estate industry for over 10 years now.
-What motivates you to get up and continue doing what you do today?
Michael McCullough: Real estate is a relationship business as much as anything, so it's fun working with people.
-Where are you today in life/business and where do you want to be?
Michael McCullough: I'm really proud of what our team has achieved thus far, but I'm excited about how much further we can go.
-What seems to be the business problem or challenges that you have today? what keeps you awake at night?
Michael McCullough: There are some growth pains particularly in instilling the corporate culture. When 50% of your staff has been with you less than a year, that's hard, when many of them are offsite that's harder.
-Having staff abroad can be beneficial if you use it to your advantage.
-What made you pick your brand name?
Michael McCullough: We came up with KMC Solutions because we are three partners in the business and those are our last initials. We had another business together but we needed to separate the entities since they were designed to do different things.
-How do your members find you today?
Michael McCullough: Most of our members find us either through online sources or through referrals. We try really hard to be approachable, we're fairly known in the startup scene now, so that's been helpful.
-The startup scene is so exciting, working with so many different people and ideas widen the perspective on your own business venture.
