Modern day entrepreneurial co-working space building an impact
By: HQ Raleigh
How are they building space for impact?
After talking to members and partners in the community, it became clear that HQ's purpose was to help build an environment where companies can connect, grow their business, and contribute to the great community, i.e. Building Space for Impact!
They intend to do this:
BY creating a purpose driven, professional community
THROUGH space, resources, and connections designed to help businesses succeed.
TO empower positive change and generate economic growth
This company wants to be more than a stepping stone for entrepreneurs and instead create a community that you never have to leave. In order to accomplish this the reality was that they would have to find a way to build space for growing teams to establish a more permanent residence. This was a much needed move with teams growing to 30+ team members, such as member companies 15Five, Real Magic, Clipper Data, and Public Input.
What are they BUILDING space for …
So by the end of 2019 HQ is excited to open not one, but two new HQ spaces. In July, the second location in partnership with North Carolina State University's Entrepreneurship Program on NC State's Centennial Campus will open its doors. This High Bay space will be directly connected to the E-Garage and provide direct access to University resources. Later this Fall, another new location, Gateway Plaza (https://abc11.com/
In addition, to building new spaces, HQ also developed plans to expand the locations they already call home. So throughout the past weeks the spaces have seen new amenities, revamped coffee, new furniture, and a bigger focus on bringing in the necessary resources for building impact and growth. The team is working to make the member journey meaningful from space orientation, to the first round of funding, and beyond. Also, with some of the most recent changes they are working to incorporate products that members have launched including the Coworks App by Lithios, Jabin Beverage Company's Apple Cider Vinegar based beverage, and Protopia's AI powered question resolution technology.
HQ Raleigh's plans, however, do not stop with simply rethinking as a company how to create community impact. They plan to spend the coming months learning more about members and the ways they can help them build an impact of their own. More importantly the Team plans to utilize their talented team to find ways HQ can partner with neighboring companies to build a brighter future together. There is a lot to look forward to when it comes to the future of Raleigh, but HQ is confident that it looks better with you in it.
