“This will be a space for growth for the whole community. There will be shared work space and shared knowledge for anyone who wants to grow in their careers or launch a small start-up and achieve their dreams” says April Zimmerman Katz, co-founder of Versa.
COLUMBUS, Ohio January 12, 2018
Get ready for a place that will provide shared work space and shared knowledge for those who want to grow in their professional lives.
On Jan. 15, Versa LLC (http://www.versa.works) will open the first of three locations in Columbus that will provide more than 50,000 square feet of shared office space for independent workers and small entrepreneurs.
The first location, in Grandview at 1201 Dublin Road, will boast 37,000 square feet. Membership sales have already begun.
“This will be a space for growth for the whole community,” says April Zimmerman Katz, co-founder of Versa. “There will be shared work space and shared knowledge for anyone who wants to grow in their careers or launch a small start-up and achieve their dreams.”
Columbus is ranked as one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S., and the number of independent workers, mobile employees and others in need of a space to work is growing as well.
Typically, with shared work space a membership is required, but in this case the space will be open to both Versa members and non-members.
And Versa doesn’t just offer shared space; it also offers shared resources.
“There will be opportunities for people to learn and expand their horizons,” Katz says.
Shared office space, practically unheard of a decade ago, is growing rapidly. Small Business Labs, which follows trends with small businesses and the gig economy, has projected that 3.8 million people globally will be making use of co-working space by 2020, a significant jump from 1.6 million for 2017.
“Columbus is growing, the number of independent workers is growing and we want to give space to all that,” Katz says. “We believe in Columbus and we chose to conduct our business here. We want to build a point of pride for this city.”
