At the Geek Offices’ Holiday Party late last month, Geek Offices members were talking about the quality of our coworking environment and the reasons for their continued membership, many for over three years. Geek Offices doesn’t have free beer on Thursdays, seminars on finding the right VC or a March Madness NCAA pool. We don’t bake cookies or host wellness classes but can point you to the vending machine across the hall or the Pilates studio down the street. Orange cushion chairs are not in our lobby.
What we do offer is a serious, low-cost coworking environment, where, without interior distractions, members can discuss assignments in our lunch room or at our community conference table, shut an office door to complete a project, put in ear phones while researching an article, or animatedly argue over the latest plot twist in the their new video game. Geek Offices coworking has a nice mix of group discussion and individual effort.
Members at the Holiday Party agreed that, in a personality test, Geek Offices members would be introverted but with a fair amount of extroversion. Hey, we’re in a coworking space so we can get down to work while being surrounded by others, not sitting in our bedrooms in our Inman Square walkup.
If you want the ability to get things done while being in the company of like-minded workmates, then you should tour Geek Offices in Inman Square and see our available offices and work stations. With Clover, 1369 Coffee House, Kimchi Kitchen, Bukowski’s, All-Star Sandwich and 30 other restaurants and bars nearby, all of the excitement doesn’t have to be inside the coworking space.
