United Upstarts is a new coworking experiment. We have one mission: Unite startups to propel growth through collaboration. Successful startups almost always have one thing in common- they were able to talk to the right people and work with the right people. Through cultivating various key relationships and strategic alliances they were able to turn their idea into a reality. We are looking for all types of people- entrepreneurs, techies, creatives, socially conscious, non-profits etc. but everyone will have one thing in common which is the pursuit of their start up. Additionally, we don’t want all start ups but rather the ones who are really committed to the idea of collaboration and building a community with a high caliber of people. When you walk in our doors you should be able to really feel the energy. Our goal is to get great people in the space to foster that environment and serve as a business incubator.
At United Upstarts: we’re going to take coworking one step further and actually focus specifically on Startups with an emphasis on how the community can help each other grow their businesses. Coworking naturally helps with this process because it encourages the exchange of ideas and sharing of resources. We will enhance this by hosting networking events, holding meetings to engage our members, and connecting our members with people who can help them expand their business.
Prior to getting the space: we will start off by meeting at a coffee shop in NYC at least once a week (if not more) to share ideas, give input for the actual space, connect with fellow Upstarters, and find exciting entrepreneurial events to visit. We will also hold a weekly event simply to relax and unwind with our fellow coworkers over a few drinks. Our goal is to create an awesome coworking community before we actually open shop.
Future Coworking Center: We’re shooting to open the center in the next 2 months (or so) when we are able to generate enough interest. We are looking for at least 10 full time members and 5 part timers. Initially spaces will be limited, so feel free to contact us if you would like to be one of our first 15 members. With your support we will make this a reality.
