Gainesville boasts many startup companies, and it offers plenty of business incubators, networking events,and resources made just for new ventures. But startups that have grown up into small but self-sufficient businesses don’t have the same kind of custom-made assistance here.
The Gainesville CoWork, a new multi-use space in Magnolia Parke on Northwest 39th Avenue, wants to help these matured startups grow beyond the “stuck at Starbucks stage” by giving them the space and services and they need, but likely can’t afford.
The space features a bright, open common area where members can set up shop. The open design is meant to encourage collaboration and networking among diverse professionals, says Kristen Mankosa, the communications coordinator for the CoWork’s parent company.
Private rooms line the common area’s walls, equipped with desks, landline telephone connections and lots of light. Large panel windows onto the common area maintain the sense of openness and collaboration that the CoWork is designed to foster. There’s also a conference room with moveable tables and a projector for larger private meetings.
A media room with printers and faxes is one of many amenities the CoWork offers. Members can also set up their own extension on the facility’s landline so business calls don’t go to personal mobile phones. High-speed wireless internet with redundant fibers accommodates up to a thousand users at once and never has down time.
Whether you have a business that’s outgrown your home or the neighborhood coffee shop, a business in need of secondary home-base or ad-hoc meeting space, or you commute to Gainesville for business but have no comfortable headquarters, the Gainesville CoWork has a space and a service for you.
