Some of the most successful business ideas are born at kitchen tables, inside home offices, or in the car. Nurturing these nascent plans, however, can be a bit more challenging. Housework, kids, and long commutes to big-city office spaces pry fledgling CEOs away from their work, and these one-person corporations can lack a key element for success: collaboration.
SwitchCube aims to fill this void. The business fosters a community of independent entrepreneurs, contractors, and other professionals who work together within a shared space, either collaborating on projects or simply lending each other advice. In addition to ideas, the group also shares professional amenities, including printers, coffee, and ample oxygen. Members can also rent out a boardroom for important meetings and access designated rooms for long phone calls. With several plans available, they can make use of the space for a single day, a few days a month, or full time.
