Startups can leverage coworking spaces. The age of freezing/sweating in a garage or basement to get a business off the ground is over. Coworking spaces provide a cost-effective, social way to spark off the “next big thing”!
When it comes to providing a future for yourself and/or your budding business, marketing provides the key. Don’t sell yourself short. After all, when the customers/clients dry up, people and/or organizations will only do business with you if they know you exist.

Coworking spaces are viable options for entrepreneurs and/or remote workers to socialize within a professional environment while staying on task. However, the key factor for coworking spaces is location, pure and simple.
As the year progresses, this is a great time to look at co-working trends and make sure space you are considering hits most of your requirements. If you find something you'd like, please be sure to share it with us!
Tech Hub Hudson’s coworking members Anouk and Rachel are remote employees for a logistics company located in Kirkland, Ohio. Anouk, a Hudson resident, accepted her position because the organization allows her to work remotely. Our venue is the ideal location for Anouk as it’s only five minutes from her home.
Rachel was brought on in May 2017 to help Anouk with her increasing coding workload. As a resident of Wadsworth, Rachel is thrilled to commute just 35 minutes to THH rather than an hour and a half to the company’s headquarters.
It’s shocking how many entrepreneurs have a difficult time explaining this when asked: “what do you do for a living?”. If you don’t know how to tell someone what you do in a succinct, easy to understand the way, an opportunity will go knocking elsewhere. What is the solution? Craft a stellar elevator pitch.
Tech Hub Hudson’s latest coworking member is Blake Miner of iCompute Consulting. He is a software developer and consultant who works with Jon-Erik Chandler on a part-time basis to create custom software for mid-sized businesses who are not leveraging technology well or, in some cases, not at all.
There are many upsides to being self-employed, however, the desire to work will wain from time to time. Find out how to stay motivated by staying true to personal expectations/goals and minding, well, your mind.
Coworking spaces are like an office but without the politics. Shared workspaces enable a worker to convey a professional bearing and much needed socialization from time to time. However, it is up to each worker to be as productive as possible by being disciplined and taking control to stay productive in a coworking space
