I currently help manage two very different coworking spaces. One is a very social, elite “social club” where we filter membership applications to build an intentional community. The other is a quiet, independent space. We allow anyone interested to get a desk in the latter and, as a consequence, we tend to get members who just want a place to work with very little networking or community building. We’ve got some plans to help build a community (member-led presentations, office happy hours, etc.), but are there other inexpensive ways to build community and market the space to get more members? Does anyone have experience managing this type of space?
Thanks so much!
