The operators of a new shared office want to address the growing number of small businesses seeking space to work.
Ground Floor Coworking Space is a shared office on 7th Avenue South designed for smaller companies and entrepreneurs to rent out desk space and private working areas.
Community and Marketing Manager Tanya Malcolm says the coworking space is a growing trend in the East Kootenay.
“We really hope that this is going to be an added value to our professional community within Cranbrook,” Malcolm says. “There really is a wide range of resources here for professionals.”
Malcolm says this kind of setting supports freelancers and entrepreneurs who don’t need a traditional location.
“Instead of having to invest in the overhead cost of your own space, your own printer, your own desk and furniture, all of those costs are shared with all the members of the coworking space,” Malcolm says.
says a number of groups are already taking part including non-profit organizations.
Operators will host the grand opening 4 pm Thursday afternoon.
