Answers to Your Questions
Who else works there?
We have everything from college students and interns to employees of Facebook, Google, Apple & Uber. Most of our members are local freelancers, small businesses and remote workers.
How does it work with shared space?
It’s easy, the people who are here all know they’re going to be working around other people. It’s like a self-selection process where people want to work well with others.
Do we run out of desk space?
When that happens, we expand the size of the coworking space. So you’ll always be able to find a spot to work.
Can I take a call in there?
Of course! Calls and video chats are a normal and necessary part of business. Our space is built out to allow members hidden spots to get on calls and to do live chats. The main work area is a no-call zone, so people can keep focused on their work without distractions of a normal office, and everyone works well together.
How do I make sure I can concentrate?
Bring your favorite pair of headphones or earbuds! It’s a general rule for coworking spaces where if someone has their earbuds in or headphones on, to just let them keep crushing work.
