New business offers co-working space and expanded meetings or event space
Kitsap Peninsula Business Journal
A new co-working and events center on Bainbridge Island recently opened on the second floor of the Bainbridge Pavilion. OfficeXpats was founded on the principles of co-working. This worldwide trend allows consultants, small business owners, and others who typically work from home to create a social community; one in which they escape from working in isolation and have the opportunity to grow professional connections.
“Working from home can be a great job perk, but it can also be isolating or even distracting,” said Jason Omens, co-founder of OfficeXpats. “Co-working provides the flexibility of working from home without the downsides. Members can use the space as little or as often as they’d like with the added benefit of being able to connect with other professionals.
“In addition, co-working centers can help a small or medium-sized business grow by serving as a satellite office for new or remote workers. This helps to cut costs and allows businesses to be more strategic about how they expand their office space.”
OfficeXpats also rents events space, which can comfortably accommodate up to 35 people for a class or screening, or up to 85 for a reception. All rooms are equipped with a spectrum of AV equipment and in the future, OfficeXpats will also offer a number of IT services including cloud computing/storage and virtual office capabilities.
OfficeXpats is a membership based company; for more information, call (206) 780-2177 or visit the website at www.officexpats.com.
