Hello from Round Rock Texas!
I’m in business development to open Engage Cowork in Round Rock, Texas (30-min north of downtown Austin).
I’ve ‘gone to the Hill’ for Habitat for Humanity and wonder if the same approach would work during Coworking Week? I have a small, but growing cowork community that would be interested in participating in this, as well. We also host cowork mornings 2x a week in different parts of the county (there are 5 sizable cities/economies in the area) so we’d be targeting those cities, as Engage will probably be the first cowork space in this county.
I’d enjoy hearing your thoughts, lessons learned and how-to’s in presenting coworking to politicians, economic directors, and business leaders. In this area, I have to convince ‘Big Boy’ Hester (good ole country boy) that coworking is a worthwhile investment (not really, but that’s the essence of what I’m working with, in a city that’s coming into its own as a distinct economy from Austin’s).
