Why coworking works
elevating our local startup economy and seeing results through lax coworking
The coworking model is designed to help professionals find a productive space within a collaborative community. Longtime LAX Coworker and now member of Dassault Systèmes, Ian Dellota personified this need. “In early 2015 I was doing most of my work from my home office. While many people would find this to be a benefit, I found it to be extremely difficult to be consistently productive. Quite frankly, it sucked.” After finding LAX Coworking, frequenting presentations, attending networking events, and coworking on a daily basis, Ian found himself a new home.
As a sub-program of the Chamber, LAX Coworking has over 60 years of resources to draw from. Opportunities such as networking mixers, educational workshops, leadership programs, and even person-to-person introductions are common occurrences that coworkers can take advantage of.
LAX Coworker and member of the for-purpose organization PHDreamers, Angela Chen found LAX Coworking and was happily surprised. “There is always positive energy within the Chamber. I feel very supported in this environment and they have helped our organization make connections I never thought we’d have. I’ve been able to connect with LMU, Pepperdine, and other community activists and organizations.”
With an eclectic group of entrepreneurs who have built a community worth mentioning, LAX Coworking is truly a remarkable place whose aim will always be to elevate business and makes dreams come to fruition. In Ian's words, “A joke I would often say around the office was, ‘LAX Coworking will heal damage to your soul.’ It started out as a bit of a joke, but eventually it became my truth.”
