YOU BETTER VERK
Last week I went downtown to check out Verkspace, is a newly opened shared work space concept that as been carefully designed to have form and function. The name Verkspace is Icelandic for labout and this space was designed with Scandanavian influenced design. It is meant to be clean like office space but comfortable like a home space. Only having been open for a short time this building is still in development for future uses in the different areas in the building. They are planning on developing an space for food demos and events in the upper floor area. There will also be more private office spaces along with the communal spaces. An area with no windows meant to be used for designers and techies that need to just focus on their computer screens with little distractions. This space is meant to be used for people that are start up entrepreneurs and people that travel a lot and don't need permanent office space.
The basic membership is $95/month and includes 2hr/month boardroom booking.

I have seen other shared work spaces but this is the nicest and cleanest place with the most flexibility of any of the other spaces that I have seen. During a short contract I worked at an organization that helped young start ups get help and I can tell you that they have enough work to do without dealing with office space. This really makes it easy to get work done in a professional and comfortable environment. I highly recommend checking it out and see if it might be useful to your business needs.

I will be trying out this space soon and will do another post about my experience then.
