An instant office space with a professional look and all the amenities needed for an entrepreneur or startup business has sprouted in Wayne and aims to get local companies growing fast.
Coworking host HeadRoom, which already has a thriving office full of 50 growing businesses in Media, has prepared fertile ground for its new location and plans to open another site in Conshohocken next year.
Aspiring executives pay $350 per month and receive an address, mailbox, phone number, voicemail, live receptionist, Wi-Fi, printing and copying, a coffee kitchen and access to a 30-person conference room.
“Our goal is to make HeadRoom professional but welcoming,” Co-Managing Partner John Toofer said in a Main Line Suburban Life report.
The HeadRoom space encompasses 3,000 square feet on Sugartown Road, and the 1-year-old Media location is now home to 50 businesses — and their 18 new employees since joining HeadRoom.
“There’s an eclectic mix of subjects and expertise,” Toofer said.
And the space is teeming with opportunities. Fellow Co-Managing Partners Dan and Erin Lievens run the nonprofit Kids for Their Community, provide monthly entrepreneurial meetups, host a HeadRoom Women’s Roundtable and Power Friday meetings for the National Association of Women Business Owners of Delaware County, and offering consulting services.
“We worked with Dan on our idea and it’s blossomed,” consulting client Katie Virtue of Just Bloomed said. “It’s been fantastic. “… Dan and John have been developing these strategy sessions and workshops. We did one in January. It showed us things we needed to do and consolidate into a real plan. It’s been really beneficial to us. My partners don’t have any experience in the business world, and for them to be involved in our business is very helpful.”
