What is a co-work space?

A co-work, or shared work, space is a place for entrepreneurs to work outside their home.  A home-based business is a great place to start, and it offers lots of advantages.  You are home with your family.  You don’t have to get dressed if you don’t want to.  You can work on your business when you want and work around the house when you don’t.

For some people, though, the advantages can become disadvantages after a while.  The freedom to work when you want to can mean you work on your business 24/7 or you are easily distracted by cleaning out your closet or fixing that dripping faucet and put off working on your business altogether.

It’s nice to be home with the children or your spouse, but we have to admit, it can be hard to concentrate on developing your business plan, calling that new customer or putting all those receipts into your accounting program while listening to the latest Disney movie playing in the background for the third time today.

That is where a co-work space comes in.

Lift Off Downtown is office space at 149 N Vermilion St. in Downtown Danville where you can come to work when you want.  We do ask that you get dressed, but you can dress up or dress down.  Bring your laptop, or work at our desktop station.  Access the Internet through our Comcast Business Wi-Fi.  Need to print something, scan something or make a quick copy, use our full-color copier printer.  Meet with a client in our conference room or use one of our private offices for the day to make calls.

Need help developing your business plan, or want to talk through a new aspect of your business – the Illinois Small Business Development Center at DACC has office hours onsite to provide no-cost consulting when you need it.  Plus, there are regular lunch sessions where you can talk with other small businesses and experts about topics of interest to you.

The shared workspace is available from $10/day to $50/month and permanent private office space at $300/month.  Call us at 217-213-6269 or email downtowndanvilleinc@gmail.com.
