What in the world is Coworking?

Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared working environment. It’s a group of people who are working in a shared space, even though everyone could be working for completely different businesses.

It’s a way to stay productive, build connections, and save costs of traditional office space.

What are the other people like at the office?

They’re awesome! Our members are a cool mix of different professions who are all striving to improve ourselves and our businesses. The coworking style is self-selective in that way where it attracts people who are open to work around others, and are interested in mutual improvement. Some of our members develop software and websites, some write book, some help guide people to healthier living, some work in marketing and design. All are friendly, helpful, and respectful.

How fast is the internet?

We have a fiber-optic internet connection provided by NITCO. Our membership includes access up to 1 Gbps (1,000 Mbps) for both uploads and downloads.

Are there any deposits or long-term commitments?

We understand the need for flexibility, so we do not have any extra set up fees, deposits, or long-term commitments for normal membership. See the costs

For virtual office spaces, and members who need a mailing address, we require a 12 month commitment to prevent any sort of funny-business stuff while protecting the address for everyone else.

What kind of coffee do we have?

We buy organic, direct trade and fair trade beans from all over the place! Let us know if you have a preference and we’ll cycle it in!

Are there enough places to sit and work?

We have absolutely enough office space for our membership now and in the future. We’ve not run out of space before, and we’ll expand our own square footage before we run out of space for everyone.

What if I just want to go to the office and not talk to anyone?

Then you’re totally allowed to do just that. If you just want to put in some earbuds, bury your face in your monitor, and crush work-then please do so (We’ll just make sure there’s enough coffee for you to go all day and night)!

What does everyone wear there?

Basically whatever people want! Normally folks are just casual mode, but if you want to rock it in pajamas and a hoodie, then you’re more than welcome. If you think today should be a black-tie evening, be our guest (and bring the champagne!)

What should I do about eating during the day?

We have a few different options for you. For one, we usually try to keep some fruit and other brain foods out in the space to snack on. Or, if you like bringing a great meal from home then you can store your lunch in our fridge. If neither of those sound ideal, or if you want to experience the greatness of downtown Valparaiso Dining, then we have a whole bunch of lunch places right next to us!  Google Map for lunch near downtown Valparaiso
