Work Nimbly started as a shared workspace in 2014, but has grown to be so much more. It’s a hub for entrepreneurs to problem solve together, a pop-up art gallery and a hive of activity for people trying to push Williamsburg into the future.
Fall of 2017 begins the next chapter for Work Nimbly, a much larger space on Penniman Road in the city of Williamsburg.
“We have so much more room now! We really hit capacity at our former place. Now we have room for workshops, classes, conferences, and, of course, more coworkers!” Gretchen Bedell, co-owner and Dutchess of Design for Work Nimbly is excited about the new building.
“One of the challenges of the new space was to make sure we still had the productive, yet communal, vibe we had in the Teacherage Building. With imput from our community members we’ve brought over all the things everyone liked in the old space, and then added more!” says Jenn Haynes, Work Nimbly’s other co-owner and the Numbers Ninja.
The location of the new Work Nimbly offers outdoor space, including picnic tables and a shared bike to take a quick jaunt during lunch. The more than 3,000 square foot building offers more conference space as well as room for events such as yoga or the popular weekly Cobblers’ Collective small business support group.
“We finally have room for everyone at the Unread Bookclub.” Gretchen talks about the monthly bookclub where “It’s the only bookclub where you don’t have to read the book! We serve a free vegetarian lunch and two members from the club present on two different business books.”
And the Boss Ladies (Jenn and Gretchen) moved Gnorman’s Little Free Business Library too. Anyone in the community is welcome to take or leave a business book anytime they like.
“I absolutely look forward to coming to my office at Work Nimbly – it’s where I do my most productive work, where I get advice when I’m stuck on a client project and where we get new ideas for our businesses,” said Natalie Miller-Moore, a longtime member who’s been enjoying her new office since the soft open in July.
There are several membership options, some with 24/7 access, all with rocket fast wifi, great comeraderie, and 95% less baristas.
“We’ve grown so much in the past three years, I’m excited to see what our small business community comes up with next,” says Jenn Haynes.
