Why Waterman

More than just a workspace

In a fast paced, ever changing world, people can now work from pretty much anywhere. Home can be unproductive and lonely, while typical office space is inflexible, boring and expensive.

Welcome to a revolution in business. Welcome to Waterman – a place to work, connect, collaborate and create with like-minded people.

Waterman supports all business ventures by offering spaces to suit any workplace needs. Small through to large office spaces, meeting rooms, hot desks, dedicated desks, lush, green, light-filled atriums, and lightning fast internet are just a few ways Waterman can change your working world for the better. Networking, social opportunities and a feeling of community will inspire your desire to create something remarkable.

Why Waterman

Iconic Centres

With a clear plan to build multiple centres in strategically placed, iconic areas around Melbourne, our already remarkable offering will only get better by creating a network of flexible workspaces that enable you to grow.

Real Community

We’re convinced that isolation is one of the key reasons why so many business owners fail to maximize their potential. Creating environments that foster relationships and encourage genuine collaboration is the heart of our “why”. It’s what sets our business centres apart.

Dedicated Support

Our unique ‘Start 21’ and ‘Support 12’ programs combined with business planning resources, support managers, staff development services and relevant workshops are not just a nice add on - they are essential to why we are successful.

We're better together

We simply love small business. We are truly inspired by their courage, their wonderful entrepreneurial spirit and their willingness to back themselves — no matter what.

But we also know that small business is tough, risky and has no guarantees. The unfortunate reality is that many small businesses don’t make it; bowing out with dented pride or broken spirit. The majority fall short of their true potential and never live out their dream.

We’re convinced that we can change this dramatically. Our deep conviction is to become legendary in the business centres we build, the communities we create and the support systems we provide, so that if you have the right attitude, work ethic and heart, success can be virtually guaranteed.

The ripple effect of small business prosperity is significant—not only for the owner, their family, friends and local community, but for our city and nation. Each of us hold in our hands the power to do so much good on a grand scale, to contribute to the prosperity of Australia and the wellbeing of its people. We can only get so far on our own, but we believe that together we are capable of achieving so much more.

We believe in love. We believe in never doing the wrong thing. We believe in giving. We believe that our collective genius is far greater than our individual ability. We believe that if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing well. We believe that life is to be lived with laughter, good memories and good friends. Above all, we believe that people matter and relationships are everything.

We also believe that a three-minute conversation at the coffee machine, a chance meeting in the hallway or focused feedback given by a seasoned professional can profoundly change a business. We know in our hearts that the wellbeing of small business owners is more than worth it. That’s why we are so committed to building these environments and we’re not going to give up until we see this dream realised.

That’s why we’re better together!
