Today we’re taking advantage of one of the benefits of our participation in the Accelerator program and moving to a new office in The Communitech Hub. We are now located in the “Sandbox”, an open-concept office space that we share with several other start-ups.
Among the many services the Hub offers start-ups is a range of office space options from a single desk to a large private space for up to 15 employees. As your needs change so can your office configuration.
We used to have a private office here at The Hub, but we found that we had built a virtual team and no longer needed it. Appropriately for a cloud computing company, we shared files over the cloud and communicated via phone, Skype and email. Our office desks were mostly vacant, and we were taking up valuable space that could be used by other start-ups.
So off we went to the Sandbox, where I have already met our new neighbours (that’s Canadian for “neighbors”). There is a Rube Goldberg-like stretching machine in the corner: it’s a collection of bent pipes that looks like the world’s largest goalie mask, but the instructions posted on it show how you can stretch every part of your body. Since I am developing the hunched shoulders of many who spend too much time at a keyboard, I hope to put it to good use.
Our address and phone number remain the same, except we are now suite 100.
Our offer still stands: If you would like a tour of the Communitech Hub just give me a call. It is one of the best places to be if you are a start-up.
