Mesh Cowork sits above a local coffee shop in the heart of downtown Bakersfield. Walking up the stairs you’ll find an open room with lots of windows offering natural light, and a view of downtown. With plenty of desks and space to work there’s always room for one more at our table.
What separates Mesh Cowork from other locations that cater to remote workers, freelancers, and self-employed professionals is that we focus on creating community. Virtual offices, executive suites, and home offices are useful, but at Mesh we’ve created a space for independent thinkers to come together and escape the solitude of the home office, or the sounds of a busy coffee shop. You only pay for the time and space that you use. No need for a lengthy commitment when you might only need a place to work for a few days, or even a couple of hours.
The members of MESH are like an informal team of technology partners that, while independent, share information and encouragement with others in our community setting. Each member brings unique value into the space. Having this open environment unites a diverse group of professionals into a cohesive one. Everyone benefits from each other. That is what makes coworking unique. It is not just about working where and when you want. It is about the people you end up working with, and that makes all the difference.
Not all workspace is created equal, and today's entrepreneur is privy to a fantastic range of space to suit all types of working requirements.
So whether you need space to think, to meet, to make, or innovate,
we've got it all worked out.
Here's a quick guide on what to expect
from each type of workspace and how it works:
Often referred to as serviced offices or executive offices, Private Offices are individual suites that come in all shapes and sizes. Generally, private offices are rented out to small businesses with a package of services, flexible lease terms and simple monthly invoices. The package of services often includes office furniture, cabling, receptionist services, and access to meeting rooms.
Coworking spaces are shared environments in which people from different companies pay to use the workspace on a simple membership basis. Because of its shared nature, rental costs are often much cheaper than private offices. The 2008 recession sparked a massive rise in the use of Coworking spaces, and the industry has continued to expand and diversify ever since.
Hybrid Coworking & Private Offices
The popularity of both Coworking and Private Offices means that many operators now provide a mix of both types of workspace under the same roof. This gives occupants of Private Offices the chance to collaborate and network with Coworking users. It also provides scale-up opportunities for Coworking members that have outgrown their shared space.
Popular with remote teams, freelancers and home-based business owners, a Virtual Office gives small firms a local presence without the costly commitments of a physical office. Virtual Office clients get a real business address, live receptionist support, a mailing point and mail forwarding services, plus the option to rent meeting rooms or day offices on-demand.
In our increasingly mobile landscape, business owners and independent professionals need instant access to Conference Rooms all over the world. There's a huge spectrum of Conference Rooms available, from small interview rooms and boardrooms to video conferencing suites. They're furnished, well-equipped, and usually provide catering and concierge services too.
Whether you're organizing an informal seminar, a tech hackathon or an international conference, you need an Event Space that's professional, prepped and ready to go. Event Spaces are available in key locations all over the world and come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, each with their own unique culture, adjustable layouts and technical capabilities.
Designed to nurture early stage startup businesses, an Incubator Space is normally one of several services provided by a party (often publicly funded) with a vested interest - such as a university or a non-profit organization. The physical workspace is usually part of a package of support services that may include mentoring, training, funding and equipment.
Designed to accelerate early-stage or small businesses, Accelerator Spaces typically accommodate startup cohorts with externally developed ideas. Entrepreneurs benefit from access to physical workspace in addition to other services, such as seed capital, mentoring and training in exchange for small amounts of equity.
A commercial Maker Space is like a coworking space for hands-on creativity. Maker Spaces usually come kitted out with various tools and materials to enable entrepreneurs to collaborate, design and create physical products. The tools provided can be anything from 3D printers and laser cutters to soldering irons and sewing machines.
