Opportunity Space Opens Coworking Office Space in Austin

AUSTIN – Even the name sounds entrepreneurial. Opportunity Space has opened what it’s calling an “all-dedicated desk coworking space.” The coworking office space in Austin will offer its own twist on the trend that is making the concept a fast success.

Simply stated, Opportunity Space aims to offer startup businesses and freelancers with dedicated desks or offices. The keywords are collaboration and flexibility, which are the combined Holy Grail of alternative office space. For example, Opportunity Space members can lease one or more desks for a fixed low monthly rate per desk, with no long-term commitments.

“Opportunity Space takes the hassle out of leasing office space for your startup, allowing you to focus on your business instead of your office,” says Erica Douglass, Opportunity Space’s founder, who is also a blogger and CEO of local startup company Whoosh Traffic. “We are proponents of keeping things simple. We enjoy working with like-minded startup companies and freelancers who can benefit from networking with each other.”

The basic model is not particularly unique, but how Opportunity Space is executing the model is interesting. And the target audience is responding. Opportunity Space has already leased out one-third of its available desks just two weeks after its grand opening. That, Douglass says, is a clear sign of the demand from Austin freelancers, startup founders, and entrepreneurs for a quiet yet communal space to work.

The location is enviable. The Austin coworking space seems to take a page out of New York City’s playbook. Opportunity Space is located one mile east of the Austin Convention Center in a remodeled converted house complete with wooden floors, high ceilings, full kitchens, and full bathrooms including a shower.

Here’s how it works: You get your own dedicated desk and chair, so they can store items in the space. The coworking space offers high-speed Internet and wireless coverage throughout the entire house. Each member has free access to printers, scanners, and shredders, and the refrigerators are stocked full with drinks. Coffee and snacks are also provided. All utilities such as power, heat, air conditioning, and filtered water are included. There are no upcharges for items like conference room access.

Opportunity Space is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week to members. The location includes 14 dedicated parking spaces, as well as ample street parking, for members to use. The address is 2125 East Cesar Chavez St.
