Coworking

To create a vibrant entrepreneurial community that fosters growth, success and collaboration.

A number of folks in the Comox Valley have started discussing the creation of a larger co-working space/entrepreneur hub within the Downtown Courtenay area. Sign up to receive occasional emails regarding developments, or contact Kelsey or Leif for more details.

Coworking can be described as a style of work that involves a shared working environment and independent activity. In practice, coworking is a collaborative community that provides connectedness and accelerated serendipity.

There are many benefits of coworking spaces:

  • You can put pants on in the morning! Get out of your head and your bathrobe and get into a professional working place.
  • Network and connect with talented people to grow your business
  • Be more motivated & productive
  • Separate home from work: leave household distractions like family members, laundry, fridge temptations and TV at home
  • Have access to things like unlimited coffee, printing services, meeting rooms, a receptionist, events & workshops, local amenities and more!

Local Projects

There are already two fully occupied co-working spaces in the Valley, Studiopolis and Bricks & Mortar (Medium Rare, KiteStrings, Dialect, Tickit, Denman+).

The Shed is a local project to create a community service cooperative with a tool library and maker’s space.
