Lisa Denoia and Jeff Werby

Episode 111: June 11, 2018

While a traditional professional goes to the office every day, other professionals work from home, often alone and isolated. Those working from home have an alternative: Coworking. By next year, over two million professionals around the world will go to work in shared offices or workspaces where they work independently. Amenities in coworking spaces include office space, conference rooms, private telephone rooms and other necessities professionals seek. Lisa DeNoia and Jeff Werby launched 1701 – a coworking, meeting, and event space in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and it has quickly caught on. They join us today to discuss coworking, the types of professionals it attracts, and how it’s grown from a simple workspace to a collaborative community.
