Counting Down! 76 Days Until Opening Day
Building a coworking community is no small feat. We are 76 days away and there’s lots of planning and meeting and creating to do. We’ve had our eye on the space for almost two years, so that was the easy part. Now, we want to “build a community” before we build the physical community.
To create the right community, we must focus on synergy and connecting with people we actually don’t mind seeing every day. The characteristic that makes a coworking environment better than a coffee shop is intention. Coworkers intentionally commune in a space to work along…together. Being with other self-directed people is inspiring and promotes innovation, creativity and possibly greater productivity.
Our task over the next 76 days is to find those people. We’ll start with the people we already know or interact with in real life and virtual networks. Then, we seek out the people in industries in which we are familiar. If we reach out to enough people in our circles and they reach out to the people in their circles, pretty soon we’ll have the makings of an awesome coworking community.
