Co-working concept, Work.Life, which opens near King Street this November, has announced it has teamed up with five high-profile Manchester entrepreneurs for the launch of its new space.
Steven Bartlett (Founder and CEO, Social Chain), Sacha Lord (Founder, The Warehouse Project, Founder, ParkLife, and Night Time Economy Advisor to Greater Manchester), Nick Speakman (Founder, SPORF), Karina Jadhav (Founder, Menagerie) and Anthony Logan (Founder and CEO, Noir) have all worked with Work.Life to create bespoke artwork for the space.
Representing the Manchester entrepreneurial scene, each has provided their own wall quote to inspire the next generation of start-ups and Manchester businesses working within the space.
The artwork will be available to view when the co-working venue, situated in the CORE building on Brown Street, officially opens on 19th November.
To celebrate further, Work.Life will also be hosting a series of’ ‘An Evening With..’ sessions with the entrepreneurs, for business owners and start-ups to hear exclusive takeaways, business tips and the stories behind their journeys to the top.
Evening sessions with Karina Jadhav and Sacha Lord are already confirmed for November, with tickets opening today across the @workdotlife social channels and through EventBrite.
Sacha Lord, Founder, The Warehouse Project, Founder, ParkLife, and Night Time Economy Advisor to Greater Manchester and who has contributed to the design of Work.Life, comments, “Start ups form the foundation of business throughout Greater Manchester. I’m delighted to see and support Work.Life, which will undoubtedly become a hub for the next generation of entrepreneurs from our city.”
The Manchester space is the eighth venue for the award-winning company which has already had MTV and Dr. Marten’s as members.
Housing 300 members, the 12,500 sq ft space will offer three levels of membership – Resident (private offices), Local (unlimited hot desking), and Flex (pay-as-you-go hot desking), and will be kitted out with a reception, kitchen, meeting rooms, private phone booths, calming cubicles for people to unwind and breakout areas for members to meet, socialise, collaborate and relax.
In addition to a packed events schedule including weekly yoga classes, beer & pizza nights, ‘lunch & learns’, and networking socials, Work.Life members will also benefit from bicycle storage, showers and a pet-friendly policy.
Work.Life Manchester opens 19th November. Tours are taking place now and can be booked via work.life/MCR. Tickets to the Evening Sessions will be launched across Work.Life’s social channels (@Workdotlife) and Eventbrite.
