StartupCity Opens Doors for Coworking

Beginning tomorrow, May 29th, StartupCity Spencer will be officially open for coworking every Thursday from 8am – 5pm.

What is Coworking?

Coworking is when people are given an environment to work in that fosters collaboration. There is a general absence of walls and dividers, and there is an abundance of people and resources that encourage discussion, sharing and ideas.

The Benefits

There is a lot of research out there that points to coworking as beneficial to overall productivity and quality of work. In an article for Fast Company, Lydia Dishman says, “Contrary to popular opinion that an open environment like the Secret Clubhouse is just as distracting as a coffee shop, 68 percent of those polled by Deskmag (in Deskmag’s annual Global Coworking Survey) said they were able to focus better, and almost as many (64 percent) reported they were better able to complete tasks on time.”

In addition, StartupCity Spencer has a workspace that comes outfitted with the necessities, such as wi-fi, printing, ergonomic chairs and large desks, and a fully stocked kitchen.

If you want to drop in…

There is no need to RSVP unless you would like to reserve one of our offices. Otherwise we will be open every Thursday from 8am – 5pm and our City Manager, Lacy, will be able to help you get set-up with a desk. The daily drop-in rate is $10 for full use of facilities and free every Coworking Thursday! There is no set arrival time – simply stop by whenever works best for your schedule.
