Local Orlando coworking spots helping start ups grow

Posted on by colabadmin in Orlando News | No Comments

A few weeks ago we were approached to be interviewed by a Full Sail blogger about coworking spaces and the documentary Orlando Rising. We gave them a tour of our coworking space, and they were amazed by this concept. Being able to work without any set hours, distractions, and the ability to network.

It may have looked like your typical coffee shop gathering, but one Brooklyn building hosted four of the most prominent young tech companies in the wake of an emergency. It happened after Hurricane Sandy, which wiped out the power of many offices in New York. A quaint studio invited staff from Gawker, Tumblr, Foursquare and Vimeo to work from its space. It’s the most prominent example of a new trend in business called coworking in which professiona ls from different businesses and industries work independently in a community space. It’s collaborative, fun, and best of all, professionals experience a productivity boost. If you’re a business owner or entrepreneur, coworking may be the bottom-line boost your business needs to survive. By the Numbers Coworking may sound like an employee-driven initiative to break the shackles of the traditional office, but it’s paying dividends for business owners. The Deskmag.com Global Coworking Survey 2012 revealed that …

Five years later, CoLab is still the perfect choice for Orlando entrepreneurs In 2008, CoLab Orlando opened up its doors in the beautiful and historic Angebilt Building in Downtown Orlando. Over the years we’ve expanded to several floors, knocked out walls, welcomed new friends and said goodbye to old ones. Through it all, we’ve wanted to provide the kind of space that would appeal to Orlando’s entrepreneurs, startups, creatives and freelancers. “At its heart, coworking is about being able to break free of the conventions of more traditional offices and making connections with people you might never have met otherwise,” says Brian Wilson, CoLab Orlando’s Community Director. “It’s an alternative to that isolation you can feel when you work at home or the limitations you sometimes meet when you work out of a Starbucks. It’s all about joining in a collaborative space where you can thrive.” CoLab was on the …
