In yesterday’s The Pros and Cons of Working From Home, I mentioned learning that most of my “cons” were mitigated by a co-working office concept. Recently, I’ve been hard-at-work opening a new co-working space in downtown Fort Wayne, along side several others. I’m thrilled that CoWork Fort Wayne is now open! We’re trying to focus on creating a quiet work space for developers, creatives, and other from-home employees that benefit from an open office, in addition to providing networking and relevant events. It’s a big space on the 5th floor of the Murphy Building, in the center of downtown (across the street from Dash-In). “Core” members get 24/7 access, keys, work area, and the ability to leave gear. We’re also creating a “drop-in” concept for non-regulars with a low daily rate. This is definitely not a means to profit, etc. — the goal is to break even and maintain sustainability.
