For those of you I have yet to meet, hello!
We’ve been building collaborative communities for more than 10 years now in Toronto.
I’ve been really lucky to get to travel the world, visiting hundreds of coworking spaces and meeting thousands of coworking enthusiasts at international conferences. In all of my travels, there are a few coworking communities that really stand out.
One of those spaces happens to be Office Nomads in Seattle, Washington.
The thriving community and sense of camaraderie amongst their members is unparalleled, and after almost 8 years of quietly shaping the coworking movement I feel they are truly an example for us all. (Full disclosure - I’m also lucky to call the co-founders Jacob and Susan friends)
In Toronto, Creative Blueprint and Foundery are partnered within the same 15,000 sq ft location (The Foundery Buildings) and we are attempting to recreate the success of that model out in Seattle. Creative Blueprint is launching a new US location on the West Coast, IN THE SAME 15,000 sq ft BUILDING AS OFFICE NOMADS.
Office Nomads are founding members of the Seattle Collaborative Space Alliance and we are founding members of the Coworking Toronto Collective, so we are not strangers to the concept of collaborating with other spaces - we like to work together! What I am currently searching for are examples of other independent coworking communities that have partnered in the same building, or in the same city to bring additional facilities and/or resources to their members and their neighbourhood.
Please point me in the right direction - I have so many questions
You can check out the video about our Seattle expansion here:
We’ve been raising funds via Indiegogo, and surprisingly many people have also approached us directly with financial contributions and materials.
Feel free to share the campaign - there is only one week to go, and we need all the help we can get
Every share and every dollar counts.
Thanks in advance!
