Home-based office workers are finding networking opportunities, office space and amenities at Second Gear Coworking in Lansing's Old Town.
According to excerpts from the story:
Derek Kastner sometimes heads to a coffee shop when he feels cooped up in his home office, even though it's not always an ideal workplace.
Kastner was starting to consider opening his own co-working facility when he learned about Second Gear Coworking at 1134 N. Washington Ave. in Lansing's Old Town
district. Now, he has a place to go when home gets to be too much—and he pays for access without feeling as though he's taking advantage of a business.
Second Gear came about when Gravity Works Design and Development
decided to lease the 700-square-foot space next to its office.
Second Gear markets itself as an ideal spot for entrepreneurs, freelancers, writers, designers, software developers, educators, lawyers, small-business owners and startups.
Users can pay $15 a day or up to $240 for 20 visits to use the facility's desks, Internet access, conference area, projector, printer and other office amenities.
