The flexibility to have an office as close as possible to home is important to them,” Noelle Stary, founder of the (co)working space, said. “We’ve heard so many entrepreneurs say, ‘If only your space was in my town.’ So, we’re taking steps to license our brand and open new spaces in other local communities.”
