Platform for office rental with flexible contracts
Founded in 2016 by Matthieu Nicolini and Gabriel Roucel, Volum is a platform for decision-makers and business leaders to find their offices quickly, simply and free of charge, and for real-estate owners to effectively find professional tenants. Until today, renting office space was a time-consuming and expensive task. With Volum, and more than 500 offices available on the platform, searching, finding and renting an office becomes simple and free. They connect tenants with office owners through a very user-friendly tool. They manage the process from A to Z, from search to signature. And they don't take any commissions or fees from the tenant. The service is 100% free. they specialize in renting office space for start-ups from 10m2 to 10,000m2, for one month or 10 years.
What is the value proposition?
The first is the elimination of fees charged to tenants. Today, going through a traditional real estate agent costs between 15 and 30% of the annual rent. With Volum it's over, no fees, no hidden costs. Everything is transparent and clear.
The second value proposition is the digital approach to the market. The platform is a tool. You have two ways to use it. Either you search our marketplace for properties that interest you, or you make a search request and a member of our team will send you the properties that match your criteria. Volum is able to find an office within 24 hours.
Who are the users of the platform?
90% of our users are start-ups. The rest are large corporations. Start-ups are looking for speed of execution, solutions adapted to their situation and inexpensive services. The aim is not to keep them away from their core business for too long, because finding an office is a long and complicated task.
