Ruru Madrid has a new business.

The Kapuso hunk is venturing into the lease and rental of serviced offices, which offer viable solutions for local start-up companies or foreign companies looking for temporary or virtual offices in Manila.

He explains, “Meron po akong itinayong parang isa po siyang... ang tawag po namin is open space.

“So yung open space po, basically, para po siyang co-working space.

“Yung like for example, ikaw po gusto mong mag-opisina for a day, puwede mong rentahan yun, for one day.

“Puwede mo siyang rentahan for a month, for a year, so ganun po.

“Bale one thousand square meters po yung laki po nun.

“Ang laki po niya is, sa one thousand square is meron sa ibaba, merong second floor.

“Pero ang kaya po namin ma-handle na puwedeng kumuha ng space dun is more than, siguro mga eighty plus.”

RURU'S TARGET MARKET FOR HIS BUSINESS

Who are his potential clients?

He reveals, “Meron na po, may kanya-kanya na po, 'tapos meron din kaming anim na conference rooms 'tapos magtatayo rin po kami dun ng workshops.”

How many offices can they accommodate within their total space?

Ruru adds, “Madami e, parang… kasi ano po siya e, like hindi po siya kuwarto-kuwarto, para siyang cubicle lang.

“Kasi ang kagandahan dun free WIFI, may free coffee, yung may mga ganun, air-conditioned.

“So pagka gusto mo, like bagay yun sa mga young entrepreneurs, e.

“Like siyempre, sa ano lang kami, Katipunan, so yung katapat lang Ateneo [de Manila University] so puwede silang dun mag-opisina.”

OPENING SOON

While the construction of their office building is still ongoing, Ruru happily reports that they will start operations by mid-November, with a major company already firming up plans to lease an entire floor.

“Mag-o-open po kami ng November 18, and then may nakuha kaming isang malaking company na gusto niyang kunin yung buong floor, so ang matitira na lang po yung mga nasa ibaba na puwede pong gamitin for co-working space,” he elaborates.
