After Julian’s wedding I ended up in Hoboken for a few days, meet my Stevens friends and professors, and some business contacts I have made over the years doing online business. Monday morning I was looking for somewhere to work, and after quickly getting frustrated with coffee shops not having wifi, seats, etc I went and google searched “Hoboken Coworking”.
It was really funny, as the top news was about Hoboken’s first coworking space that just opened a couple weeks ago in mid- august called “Mission Fifty”. I emailed them to see if I can drop by, and they were there, with arms wide open saying the coworking office is open 9am to 6pm. I had lunch at Stevens with my friend Jen and then walked over to Mission Fifty.
A bit of a walk from Washington street, it took about 15 minutes to get there, in a new building called the “Hoboken Business Center”, the mission fifty coworking office was on the Penthouse (top floor).
A really slick new office is approx 3,000 square feet, with special “phone booth stations” to make private calls, various open working areas, fixed offices, break out rooms, lounge area, and conference room.
But like any coworking space, its not the actual space, its the people inside. Monday afternoon when I entered I met a bunch of startup guys and entrepreneurs….THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR. I am realizing my friends from hometown and college are going to continue to grow away from me as I continue to develop business….and they all settle down getting married and working in corporate america…. I need to find like minded business minds and coworking spaces have been the heaven for it.
Met some great guys, like Jimi who is doing web design and marketing. Doug Pierce who is doing SEO auditing and evaluation (very interesting stuff) and the partners of the space are really cool doing startups promoting construction companies online and having regular startup meetings.
Here is some more information Peta there gave me:
