Why thinkMESH?

Today's "best practice" approach to acquiring, designing and managing commercial real estate is not capable of delivering solutions that address the needs of modern organisations.thinkMESH was created to disrupt this status quo and unlock considerable value for landlord and tenants.

Modern innovative organisations see their working environment as so much more than a line item in an annual budget.

Workplaces are a highly visible and tactile manifestation of who companies are and what they stand for.

A holistically designed and curated environment is a powerful tool capable of driving innovative companies towards their goals at a greater velocity

thinkMESH uses a proprietary consulting and technology platform and methodology that enables organisations to acquire, create and curate environments that support open, purpose-driven communities.

Modern Organisation

What We Believe?

Companies who win the future of business will be open by default. Their values and culture will be underpinned by a foundational belief that openness is the key to achieving their full potential.

Successful companies will create communities, alliances, and partnerships with like-minded,  complementary businesses and individuals all based on the concept of reciprocity.

A winning company culture will be one where behavioral norms encourage staff and the broader organisation to become the human equivalent of an API. 

Success will be determined by their ability to amplify their strengths and negate their weaknesses by seamlessly interacting with colleagues and partners within other organisations.
