Business Beyond Boundaries

The much-hyped transformation of the American workplace goes far beyond just a rise in remote and hybrid work arrangements. Two-thirds of venture-backed startup founders say they're reconsidering their investment in their offices entirely, according to a 2020 survey by consulting firm The Kung Group. Many entrepreneurs have already elected to eschew a conventional office space--with some even packing a few essentials and setting up shop wherever the road takes them.

It's an entirely different way to do business, unencumbered by the rules and limitations of the past. Check out some of the bold, unusual, and sometimes downright odd innovations that founders have developed to reimagine their work lives. Not only will they inspire you, they might also make you think twice before renewing your lease.
