Event description

Description

Dimension5 is a collaborative, social co-working community opening its doors the last Friday of the month for young start-ups and entrepreneurs to come and taste what we are all about ABSOLUTELY FREE!

One of the best things about coworking spaces is that they are all so unique and leasing office space can be expensive and working from home is distracting, isolating and boring.

Come in and meet Travis our Community Manager to learn about co-working and how you can make the most of this innovative phenomenon used by entrepreneurs around the world.

This event starts at 10:00 am with an introduction to co-working talk at 10:15 am and then you are invited to take up a hot desk and use the space for the day and get a feel of what we do. Tickets are FREE, however, places are limited!


5 Ways Coworking Impacts Small Business Growth

1. COWORKING SPACES BUILD SHARING ECONOMIES.

One of the coworking movement’s most important roles is to remove barriers for would-be business owners that are caused by traditional overhead expenses like office space leasing, equipment, and furnishings. By providing shared space and shared amenities coworking is diminishing the impact of expenses and distributing them amongst community members.

2. COWORKING SPACES HELPS KEEP CREATIVE TALENT LOCAL AND FREELANCING. A byproduct of an emerging sharing economy, the coworking model also generates a creative economy made up of individuals who not only need an inexpensive way to operate, but need a consistent flow of new people, new ideas, and new opportunities. Without this type of engagement, creatives are forced to seek employment elsewhere, such as with a corporation, and this limits their ability to engage with other local businesses that could benefit from top-tier talent on a small-business scale

3. COWORKING SPACES BOOST THE LOCAL ECONOMY.

A local coworking community can effect a significant cash influx, upwards of $20 per member, per day, in some cases, in direct economic development through regular patronage of local businesses like gift shops, convenience stores, restaurants, bars, and local service-related industries—whereas larger corporations might outsource similar expenses in favor of a volume discount.

4. COWORKING PROVIDES A PLATFORM FOR SMALL BUSINESSES TO SUCCEED AND GROW, EVEN IF THEY DON’T REQUIRE WORKSPACE.

Local business like restaurants can also benefit from coworking spaces through direct programming, partnerships, and access to pools of available, independent contractors in industries like interior design or legal services.

5. COWORKING SPACES CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR GLOBALIZATION.

Another way that coworking spaces boost a local economy is through their flexibility in relation to the remote workforce. Now, thanks to technology, many employees have the ability to work remotely for a larger corporate employer from anywhere in the world, and their choice of “home base” is made much more attractive with the existence of an alternative to working from home. By ensuring that remote employees invest their income locally, coworking can impact small business ecosystems in as powerful of a way as a corporation’s choice of home office location.

Dimension5 is a collaboration between Dimension Data & Creative Universe to promote creativity, leadership, entrepreneurship, innovative thinking and social business enterprises.

We aim to spark innovation and entrepreneurship through having regular ‘positive human collisions’ with all of our community and their guests.

This is a space in which to go above and beyond, where anything is possible.
