According to coworking.com, coworking is a global community of people dedicated to the values of collaboration, openness, community, accessibility, and sustainability. The term “coworking” was created in 1999 by Bernie Dekoven. It wasn’t until 2005 that Brad Neuberg opened the Hat Factory as the first coworking office space in San Francisco, California. He described coworking as a physical space where independent and mobile workers came together to work in a casual environment. The philosophy of coworking is not just for office spaces but can be used for a variety of different activities.
To best understand what Venture X does, take CrossFit. CrossFit was created by Coach Greg Glassman and was perfected over several decades. The term CrossFit is defined as that which optimizes fitness (constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity). CrossFit is also the community that spontaneously arises when people do these workouts together. The communal aspect of CrossFit is the key to why CrossFit is so successful. When people leave the gym they want to feel as though they pushed themselves and didn’t waste time. The communal aspect of CrossFit pushes people to their optimal limit to give them the best workout they deserve.
Venture X is a revolutionary designed office space for today’s small businesses that features a coworking environment. Just like CrossFit, Venture X believes this communal aspect is the key to making their members very successful. The Venture X philosophy of collaboration in the coworking environment allows members the opportunity of increased productivity, increased automatic networking, increased social circles, increased daily inspiration, and decreased isolation. One of the main goals at Venture X is to give all of their members every chance of success. Just like at Cross Fit, Venture X’s members leave at the end of the day feeling accomplished and successful and coming back the next day for the continual growing experience.
