31 Oct STRANGER-FUQUAY: Demystifying Coworking in Fuquay-Varina

We’ve consistently advocated for the local community as a whole, and are proud to support the fastest growing entrepreneurial community in Southern Wake County — home to 50+ professionals and businesses that choose to headquarter their efforts at our creative space.

The “Upside-Down” of Coworking… the Hidden Benefits
Coworking is not just about “cheap office space.” Unlike traditional office spaces, it’s the inclusion of amenities and community collaboration that sets coworking spaces apart from basic office space rentals. Why pay several hundred dollars for an empty space with NO technology, NO additional spaces, and NO “mental health” break areas to escape to, when you really have to get those creative juices flowing?
Prior to opening Fuquay Coworking, our first office space for our marketing firm in Fuquay-Varina, NC cost us $500 a month for a small, single office (room). Business-class cable internet ran us ~$150/month, and this did not include all of the office furniture, cabinets, printers, and general technology and supplies that we needed to get our business off the ground. We easily spent more than $2,000 our first year, just to get our office running smoothly. We thought this was the “way it’s supposed to be,” that is, until we opened Fuquay Coworking.
Fuquay Coworking aims to reduce that hurdle by providing almost all of the technology and space a small business, startup, nonprofit, freelancer, or mompreneurs need to launch or maintain thriving businesses. Members simply pay a small monthly membership to have access to the ample technology and creative spaces available at Fuquay Coworking.
It’s that simple. Come in, get things done, and have fun doing it. That’s why 50+ members have chosen to headquarter their efforts at Fuquay Coworking.
