I’ve heard people mention on occasion a desire for co-working space in Crozet. As an entrepreneur who has spent most of the last 13 years working from home, I get that. For a variety of reasons, I’m considering getting a nice office space in or around Old Trail in 2019. This office space is likely to be bigger than I need at first, and so I’m wondering how serious people are about wanting co-working in Crozet?
To be clear, my thought is not to start a true co-working space in the traditional sense. My assumption is that Crozet is not big enough yet to support that, but you can try to prove me wrong. Instead, I’m just thinking it would be nice to have an open space office with a little bit of private spaces built in and nice views of the mountains. My business could use it, but there’s not many of us here at the moment and so I would consider subleasing desks to others until my business grows more.
For anyone who’s interested, consider this a survey. Contact me at [email protected] and answer these questions:
1) How often would you use a co working space in Crozet?
2) What would you use it for? Do you need a closed room or prefer an open space area? Or what combination of both?
3) What would you expect to pay for that?
You can assume this place would not exist until middle of 2019, so please project your answers to what your future self truly needs and would pay for.
At this point, this is just an idea, there are no plans drawn up or commitments made, but this is a useful exercise since the answers to a survey like this could affect paths my company takes in the coming months.
