About Us

Fuquay-Varina’s only creative coworking space
designed for local entrepreneurs — by entrepreneurs.


Fuquay Coworking is a coworking space described by many as a “Google-like space in Southern Wake,” located at 1000 N. Main Street in the beautiful town of Fuquay-Varina, NC — just minutes down the road from Apex, Holly Springs, Willow Spring, and Angier.


We provide small businesses, solo entrepreneurs, startups, remote employees, nonprofits, and even “momprenuers” with flexible, affordable, and creative work environments in Southern Wake County. Coworking spaces are utilized to reduce overhead costs associated with traditional offices.


Designed to be comfortable, fun, and relaxed, our unique community shares a vision and commitment to a work-space that inspires the creative process. GOOD ideas come from open-minded entrepreneurs, but GREAT ideas are born through diversified collaboration. Our members believe in working hard and producing quality products and services, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun while doing it.

Our Story

Fuquay Coworking was founded by James Wong and Virginia Johnson of Empowered Ideas, a marketing and communications firm with a coast-to-coast client portfolio, specializing in small businesses, nonprofit coalitions, and government agencies. Having come from a background in technology and innovation, James and Virginia wanted to bring a touch of “Google” to Southern Wake County.


As successful entrepreneurs themselves, they strive to provide the resources and community support that fellow entrepreneurs can use to enhance their ideas and businesses.

Our mission is to foster creative entrepreneurial development through a creative environment, resources, and access to business services successful entrepreneurs need.” — James Wong & Virginia Johnson
