The News Journal recently published a great article about our co-working spaces in Downtown Wilmington.
Here's some excerpts:
“It’s affordable, reliable and more conducive than teleconferencing on Skype,” partner Miguel Zakharia said. “It also allows us to be part of this really cool atmosphere. It feels like one big family over there.”
The largest co-working space in Wilmington, 1313 Innovation is about to get even bigger as demand for shared workspace grows among young entrepreneurs.
The 2-year-old tech-focused workspace on the ground floor of the Hercules Plaza Building opened a new wing in December and soon will begin work on a third addition.
Steven Roettger and Wes Garnett were among the first to see co-working’s potential in Delaware.
After meeting at a financial planning firm, the duo had just started the marketing firm Verge in 2008 when they read an article about this new office space model taking shape in San Francisco, Philadelphia and New York.
“As business owners just getting started, we were finding it hard to meet other people like us in Delaware,” Roettger said. “Our first reaction was this is exactly what we were looking for – a way to tap into the creative and tech community.”
Downtown Wilmington is all about innovation, collaboration, and creating exciting new things - if you haven't already experienced this in Wilmington, come on down and see for yourself.
