Celebrating 10 Years of Coworking!
You heard us right – 10 YEARS! While many coworking spaces around the world are eagerly opening their doors for their first days, Office Nomads is getting ready to really embrace a title we were given not long ago as the “Capitol Hill Granddaddy of Coworking.” Because in coworking, when you’re 10, you’re officially OLD. 😉
There really are not enough words to describe how much has happened here at 1617 Boylston Ave over the last decade. Instead of trying to write them all out, we’re just going to have a big ol’ party and we’d love for you to come.
Please join us on Friday November 3rd from 5-8pm. Expect all the usuals from a party here (good people, tasty food, delicious drinks), an all-member art show, and lots of fun and games we’ll keep a secret until the day comes. We hope that this event will be a family reunion of sorts, so if you’ve been a member at any point in time during our 10 years get yourself back here. We’d absolutely love to see you. Yes, even if you’re still here as a member 10 years later (ahem Robyn, Jonathan, Justin…I’m talking about you guys too).
You can share the event and RSVP here on Facebook.
We’ll be hosting events in the space all week long starting that Monday October 30th so stay tuned for more details. We’ll update this post as we get it all set. While you’re waiting, you should watch an old school video celebrating our first year in business. All I will share with you is the gag real because the actual video is just. too. terrible. Enjoy!
Thanks to the Seattle Times for the photo of our 3rd Birthday Party above.
Two floors of coworking at Office Nomads is awesome!
We’re having a great time getting to know our new first floor space, and are loving it more and more each day. If you haven’t come by to check it out, you should – we’re open M-F from 8:30-6 as usual. We’re always happy to give you a quick tour of the space and answer all of your coworking questions. In fact, we have a whole new team of Community Cultivators on hand who are there to help you get acquainted with all the goings-on in the space (we’ll tell you more about them soon – I promise!).
Specifically, if you are interested in becoming a Resident, you can take advantage of the opportunity to pay 6-months in advance and receive a little discount. Drop by and chat us up and we’d be more than happy to tell you all about it.
November 1: Office Nomads turns 5
We are throwing a big Open House event on November 1st and we want you to be there! Please join us in celebrating 5 amazing years of coworking on Capitol Hill, our newly expanded space, and the fabulous team that makes Office Nomads work so well. You can RSVP here via Facebook, or just come on by between 6-9pm on Thursday, November 1st. Families, friends, coworkers and colleagues are most welcome to attend.
This time three years ago, Jacob and I were nervously working through the process of negotiating a great lease for our space here on Boylston Ave. We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. All we had was a great idea, some fantastic friends to help us realize it, and finally, 5000 square feet to try and make it happen.
Three years later, we couldn’t be more excited about all that has happened at Office Nomads. Since that first day, more than 500 people have come through our doors – some staying for just a day, while others have been here nearly every day since we opened. We’ve seen new businesses hatched, clients wooed, friendships forged, and yoga habits begun. It has been an incredible journey thus far, and we are encouraged and bolstered by the energy and excitement that comes from our space each day. It is a dream come true.
With our sincerest gratitude to our members and friends, let us thank you (with beer and cake)!
Please join us at the office on Thursday, October 14th from 6-9pm for our next open house and anniversary party! It’ll be a special night and we’ll have some special announcements to make. Please RSVP here on Facebook. And feel free to invite a friend or two!
Come one! Come All! Office Nomads is celebrating its six-month anniversary tomorrow, May
30 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. with an open house at the space (1617
Boylston Ave. on Capitol Hill). It’s sure to be a rocking good time with food provided by Elemental Catering, free beer, give-aways of passes for free days
of working in the space and of course, tons
of great coworkers that you know and love. Or will know and love after the party.
It’s hard to believe it’s been six months already. So much has changed, but somehow, it still feels like just yesterday
when I met Jacob at a Halloween party and he told me all about coworking. Looking around the space though, it’s easy to see how
long it’s been and how much has happened here. You should come down and check it out. For reference, here’s a shot of Office
Nomads’ Grand Opening Party so you can see what the place looked like back then.
See you tomorrow!
