Striking out on your own?
Not only can starting your own green business be intimidating, it can get pricey. Why not save some money and network with other eco-minded entrepreneurs by coworking?
Co-working spaces are, by virtue, pretty a pretty sustainable way of growing your startup. Instead of renting a storefront or an office, coworking spaces take preexisting real estate and makes it suitable for real, honest to goodness business building.
Amenities typically include Wi-Fi, conference rooms, printing facilities, and most critically, coffee. The best part is that they create an atmosphere wherein you can connect fellow entrepreneurs and even collaborate, if the stars align.
During my research for the article, “The Frugal Entrepreneur’s Starter Kit” at Small Business Computing, I came across Green Spaces, a swank looking place to get going on your green startup in NYC and Denver.
…For instance, Green Spaces in New York City offers eco-minded entrepreneurs a day pass that costs $35 or full, seven-day access for as little as $295 month. Good luck finding even a sliver of office space for that amount in Manhattan.
Super cheap and a great way to network without all the forced, well networking, of industry meet-and-greets. Give it a shot and hit up your local co-working space for many of the perks of having an office without all that overhead.
