What if you're a very early stage startup, and you need a little space but don't want to sign up for a lease? Or perhaps you want the interaction and shared problem solving you get working working with a larger group of people. Ian Graham's latest initiative might be just the thing for you then. The following email arrived in my inbox Thursday afternoon.
Subject: the CodeFactory Preview
The CodeFactory will be Ottawa's co-working space for independent professionals and early stage businesses.
Co-working is work space built around shared facilities and services that provide a productive and inspirational work environment. Its open areas are part coffee shop and part DemoCamp while its private offices are about efficiency and productivity.
A site has been selected and preliminary plans have been developed. Now it’s your turn to say what your ideal co-working space needs to be like.
Preview the plans at:
The ClockTower Restauraunt on Bank Street (just south of the 417)
Tuesday October 9th – 11:45am – 1:20pm
Light Snacks will be served (if you can confirm that helps me determine what to order)
Come and influence how Ottawa's first co-working space gets build. I look forward to your thoughts.
