Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. This year, Caswell County opened its own entrepreneurship coworking hub, CoSquare during GEW.
Due to COVID-19, CoSquare was unable to have a traditional opening celebration and instead held an opening week with scheduled tours. They saw a variety of visitors in the first week open from partners in the project, those curious about the repurposed space, to people interested in becoming members.
CoSquare is located in downtown Yanceyville and is looking to be a catalytic project for entrepreneurs and the workforce alike. Coworking is defined as an arrangement in which workers from different companies and entrepreneurs starting and developing their own businesses share an office space, allowing cost savings networking, and convenience through the use of common infrastructure. At CoSquare, all members will have access to 1 gig of internet service, a shared kitchen, conference rooms, and a business center.
The space has three levels of membership. The general coworking member will have access to the common area, phone booths, kitchen, conference rooms and business center. The dedicated desk member will have a dedicated desk in a shared suite with 2-3 other businesses. The third option for membership is to rent out a whole suite and have it be solely used for your company. Currently, CoSquare has members at all three levels using the space.
