At SharedSpace, we’re proud we’ve made coworking in Atlanta possible for so many individuals and businesses, both old and new. What we’re even prouder of is our commitment to giving back to our community. We don’t just give back to the Atlanta coworking communities that are thriving at our locations. We also give back to the greater Atlanta community at large.
Our upcoming Collaborate and Compete event is a great example of how we give back to our in-house communities as well as the one that exists beyond our walls. That’s because this event is designed to provide support for the start-up that wins the competition as well as the winner’s local charity of choice.
To be eligible to participate in our Collaborate and Compete event, your business must be less than three years old. Your business must be based in Atlanta and employ fewer than 10 people as well.
The first round of the competition will be held on November 7, 2017 at our Dunwoody location. In this initial round, 20 businesses will break out into groups of four to practice their presentations and get feedback on the pitches they’ve prepared. Once they’ve perfected their messages, each business will deliver their 10-minute pitch to the crowd.
Only five participants will advance to the second round of the competition, which will take place on November 14 at our Cobb coworking space. At this stage, the finalists will again deliver their respective pitches in front of our esteemed panel of five judges which includes, Robert A. Cancelliere, Al Meyers, Henry Kelly, Zach Wilson and Rebecca Stone.
At the end of the night, the judges will choose the winner of our Collaborate and Compete event. The lucky winner will receive valuable prizes that can help their business achieve the next level of success. These prizes include the following:
- A free Hot Desk Membership from SharedSpace
- Consulting hours from Atlanta-based business leaders
- A cash reward of $2,500
- A $1,000 gift for the local charity of their choice
We’re only accepting 20 entrants in our Collaborate and Compete event so it’s important to register early if you want to participate. Click here to register for this competition now.
Our Second Location in Cobb
Even if you’re not going to participate in our Collaborate and Compete event, we still encourage you to attend the competition on November 7 and 14. If you can’t make the first round, be sure you don’t miss the second because the final round will also serve as the Grand Opening for our second coworking space in Cobb.
That’s right! SharedSpace is opening a second location in Cobb. So, make sure you don’t miss out on a great competition and some fun on November 14, 2017.
Everyone at SharedSpace is excited about our upcoming Collaborate and Compete event and we’re equally thrilled about opening a second location in Cobb. To learn about our competition, our existing locations or our Grand Opening for our new Cobb location, contact SharedSpace today.
