Hours of Operation: Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm
Members can have 24-hour access. Please check our “Contact” page for civic holiday closures or business hours during vacation seasons (summer, Christmas, New Year).
About Us: 45-second pitch at the Star Business Club Networking Event, 27 March 2013:
A coworking space is a large, shared office area with most desks set up open-plan. We have the option for one private office that can accommodate 1 or 2 persons. In addition to an office workspace you also get spontaneous idea-sharing, feedback from peers, mentor/mentee opportunities, and facilitated networking meetings and events geared towards entrepreneurs like you. (See more photos in “Gallery”.)
This sharing of space, resources, and ideas are the big differences and great advantages over executive business/office centres, where rows of private offices literally close the door on spontaneous communication and idea exchange. Deskmag – an online coworking magazine – has many articles, reports, and statistics on this topic and how coworking increases productivity and as a result your sales and profit (read more). It is no wonder that coworking is a fast-growing trend that has doubled its numbers annually since 2006 with around 853 such centres in North America and almost 2500 worldwide, as of February 2013 (Deskmag.com).
The Beach Business Hub has signed a Coworking Manifesto, which describes succinctly the core values of coworking and how it differs from renting office space anywhere else. Here is an excerpt:
The Values & Code of Conduct Of The Coworking Community. We value:
* collaboration over competition
* community over agendas
* participation over observation
* doing over saying
* friendship over formality
* people over personalities
* boldness over assurance
* learning over expertise
At the Beach Business Hub, you will find more than just a place to work. You become part of a creative community and a workplace that provides value not only through its amenities but its innovative approaches to collaboration and networking between its members, other networking groups, and the community at large.
And we think you couldn’t find a nicer location! (Well, we’re biased, of course.) In the heart of the Beach business area, you have access to public transit, parking, banks, numerous eateries, a supermarket, drugstore, library, unique little stores, and more. On your lunch-break you can go around the corner to Kew Gardens park or down the road to the much-loved boardwalk and beach. But beware – if you don’t already live here, you may never want to leave!
