With perfect year-round weather and miles of beautiful beaches, we all know San Diego is an incredible place to live. But there’s more to America’s Finest City than surfing and sunshine – it’s also home to a bustling startup scene. According to the 2017 San Diego Innovation Report, entrepreneurs have launched a record number of new businesses in this city, raising close to $1.5 billion in venture capital in the previous year alone.
That’s one of the many reasons why the San Diego coworking community is thriving. For many early startups, coworking spaces provide the ideal professional working environment, combining collaboration, flexibility, and affordability. But you don’t have to travel downtown to take advantage of the coworking revolution – there are plenty of ways to connect with like-minded business owners right here in North County.
Business is booming in North County San Diego
According to a study released in March from the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation, over 80 percent of small businesses along the state Route 78 corridor are expected to grow financially in the coming years. That includes cities like Carlsbad, Vista, and Escondido, and represents industries as varied as healthcare, technology, and communications. To support these businesses as they continue to grow and scale, coworking spaces are popping up all over North County, offering opportunities for entrepreneurs to network, collaborate, and contribute to the local economy.
Why you should choose a coworking space in North County
If you’re an entrepreneur, freelancer, or small business owner living in North County San Diego, there are so many benefits to choosing a coworking space that’s close to home.
- Save time
It’s no secret that the I-5 is a nightmare during rush hour, and commuting downtown can be a painful slog. Rather than wasting one (or more) hours of your day in bumper-to-bumper traffic, you can avoid the hassle and be your most productive self at a coworking space in North County.
- Save money
In downtown San Diego, parking spaces are few and far between. Most of the time, you’ll wind up paying exorbitant parking fees – or risk a wallet-busting ticket. But in North County, there’s an abundance of easy, free parking. Plus, with a shorter commute, you’ll save lots of cash on gas.
- Build your local network
A powerful professional network can help grow your business and advance your career, and there’s no better way to build a local network than by connecting with other business owners in North County. Coworking spaces allow you to expand your contacts organically through informal conversations in the common areas or special social events held after-hours.
- Create opportunities in your community
It’s been said that a rising tide lifts all boats, and this is especially true for the local economy. Initiatives such as Innovate78 encourage collaboration among North County businesses to create a successful environment where everyone can thrive. Coworking centers are collaborative spaces that inspire and innovate entrepreneurs – and that’s the key to creating a more prosperous North County.
