Launch (#MIN31 part 2)

One of the highlights of #MIN31 was a tour of Launch@CenturySuites, a brand new shared office space at TradeCenter 128.  I've been scouting out co-working spaces in anticipation of needing to move my freelance tech writing business out of my house, so have been keen to check out Launch.

In a convergence of good luck and hard work, the rain held off for us to trek across the parking lot and the folks at Launch had all the finishing touches added just in time for Wednesday's event.  The designer (in the orange sweater) pointed out features and told us which walls weren't there Tuesday night. We were impressed.

Launch offers a variety of month-to-month plans and prices, making it affordable for entrepreneurs and freelancers to get out of the house, get connected with like-minded people, and get their business to the next level. There are open desk plans, reserved desk plans, conference rooms by the hour, and day rates. The Launch website describes the options very well. Do check it out.

Desks and conference areas
All the important office amenities are available: fax, copying, WiFi, and coffee and shower access.  They even have the same balloon alien that I have in my home office! Guess I won't need to bring mine with me.
Launch Reserved Desk Area
There's plenty of whiteboard space for brainstorming, several conference areas for meetings,  storage lockers for premium customers, and access to a lobby and reception area. space can accommodate about 20 people. You can even get mail service for an additional fee.

Being at TradeCenter 128 is almost like being in a small city. There are places to eat, the obligatory Dunkies, dry cleaning, bank, medical offices, and access to public transportation. All that and close proximity to the global headquarters of Carlton PR and Marketing!
