People often think of coworking spaces largely as homes for freelancers and solo entrepreneurs, but many spaces — like ours — were designed with both independent work and teamwork in mind. The Skillery has all the workday basics covered (wifi, desk space, coffee, etc.), but we’ve also made sure to include resources and amenities that teams need: five meeting rooms, a conference room, rolling whiteboards and more.
For teams, joining a coworking space rather than renting an office space (or laptopping it separately and meeting in coffee shops) has a lot of benefits:
- Convenience. No need to worry about the headache (and cost) associated with paying the bills, maintaining the facility, and dealing with Comcast.
- Like-minded entrepreneurs all around. Need a graphic designer? Got a question for a web developer? Chances are, there's one in the room. Working from a coworking space gives you access to a community of like-minded professionals.
- Cost savings. Most coworking spaces will save you and your team money in comparison to renting your own office space.
At The Skillery, we're also adding an extra benefit for teams that need a steady space to work, meet and collaborate: Team Membership.
With our Team Membership option, teams of three or more full-time members save 10 percent off our regular membership rates, and each team member gets a personalized key fob for 24/7 access to the space and a $10 monthly Lyft credit.
Making The Skillery your team's home means you'll have full access to our 6,870-square-foot space and collaborative amenities, discounts with our partners (including Pro Vita fitness next door) and on Skillery classes and workshops. Plus you'll be working amid Historic Germantown's fine collection of restaurants and shops and with some of the city's friendliest and most talented people.
Come see how The Skillery can help your team be more productive in 2015. Drop us a note, and we'll set up a time for a visit.
