Opportunity for growth in Buenos Aires

In recent years, Buenos Aires has made great strides toward becoming an economic powerhouse. The local government has invested heavily in entrepreneurship, financing incubator and accelerator programs for startups and creating the Distrito Tecnológico—the city’s technology district, which includes an engineering university and more than 200 businesses. Since 2008, this investment has supported more than 30,000 entrepreneurs and helped create 10,000 jobs.

Several Fortune 500 companies do business in the Argentine capital, including IBM, Microsoft, and Citigroup. For companies looking to expand to the region or hire locally, they’ll find an incredible talent pool fueled by graduates from a selection of internationally recognized universities. For example, Universidad de Buenos Aires in 2019 was ranked 74th in the world and the best university in South America by QS Top Universities.

Finding Buenos Aires office space

Due to Argentina’s ongoing economic recovery and growing tech sector, the demand for office space in Buenos Aires is high, especially for A-class spaces. Costs have risen to meet that demand, and currently stand between $30 and $32 per square meter. While businesses want to take advantage of the city’s financial incentives, local talent, and proximity to the convenience of city life, the up-front costs and inflexibility of commercial leases can present a challenge.

Shared office solutions like WeWork, offering flexible monthly arrangements and all-inclusive amenities, help to mitigate the cost of doing business in Buenos Airesas well as the competition to find the best office space in a tight market. Here are some of WeWork’s best workspace options in Buenos Aires.
