If you too work in a home office, and/or coffee shop, and/or any place else you temporarily hang your hat – here’s a question: Are you interested in a co-working space in West Seattle? The idea has come up time and time again – but it has yet to become reality. Now, though, two local home-based entrepreneurs are on the brink. Just one catch: Before they can lock up their prospective space – to be known as WS Office Junction – they want to know who’s in. We met with them over the weekend and agreed to publish their pitch:
We are looking for small business owners and freelancers interested in coworking with us in the heart of West Seattle. Please contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in a small office or desk space in a fun working community with great networking opportunities. We need YOU to get our community started. Getting our lease signed depends on establishing a core group of members NOW!
In addition to basic office amenities (printer, fax, wi-fi, coffee, conference room) members will have access to lounge space, networking board and the opportunities to participate in our Office Junction community. We will facilitate lots of events and member interaction like workshops, skill sharing, Happy Hour visits, Wine tasting, Bike Day, field trips to local businesses, Donuts Day and group volunteering.
We have membership plans to accommodate a variety of work lifestyles, whether you want to use the space full time or part time. We are currently looking for serious interest in the community so we can sign the lease for a great space right in the heart of the West Seattle Junction.
– Resident $300 per month (24/7 access)
– Full timer $250 per month (weekdays 9 to 5)
– Part timer $175 per month (10 days per month)
Who’s behind it? Meet them here (disclosure, one co-founder is a WSB sponsor). And while comments on this story are great, they say they really need to hear directly from people with serious interest so they can move forward – so please do use the e-mail address above to send them a note, ASAP, if you are.
