3 Ways Utilizing a Coworking and Innovation Space Can Boost Your Productivity

Have you ever felt like you have so many great ideas for your business, but outside distractions keep getting in the way? Utilizing a coworking space is a great way to combat this problem, with a multitude of resources available to help you get your work done in a quiet, distraction-free environment. With amenities like high-speed internet access and mailing and reception services, the Union River Center for Innovation is here to help your business meet its needs — in a space that works for you! Below are three ways taking advantage of a coworking space can boost your productivity and enhance your creativity:

1. Focus on Your Work in a Quiet, Distraction-Free Environment

Innovation spaces give you the opportunity to work in a quiet location that allows you to focus on your work without common workplace distractions like ringing phones, conversation, and visitors. At Union River Center for Innovation, our coworking spaces consist of either private offices, cubicles, or our coworking office suitable for multiple entrepreneurs; offering the right fit for a team of any size. These spaces foster a productive environment to help you focus on what matters most to your business — whether that is making customer calls, answering emails, developing your product, or conducting research. 

2. Generate New Ideas with the Help of a Collaborative Environment

The Union River Center for Innovation hosts multiple entrepreneurs through our business incubator program, business affiliate program, and coworking space. As a home to entrepreneurs from a variety of different backgrounds, Union River is a melting pot of creative potential where tenants of our business incubator and affiliate programs can work alongside entrepreneurs utilizing our coworking space to bounce ideas off one another and share their expertise. In addition to simply being a part of an innovative community of entrepreneurs and small business owners, you’ll also be eligible to participate in our brainstorming sessions, where you’ll be able to come up with new ideas with fellow business owners, and even help the other entrepreneurs conceive new ideas. You never know what your fellow entrepreneurs may come up with that could dramatically help you take your business to the next level!

3. Save Valuable Time with Worry-Free Conference Room Availability

New business owners often spend a considerable amount of time looking for a professional space to host their important meetings. With conference room usage included at our Innovation Center, you’ll be able to host meetings with potential clients or investors, hold an important job interview, or meet with your team without having to sacrifice your time scheduling meeting spaces. Host your meeting of up to 6 participants without having to worry about the logistics of your business’s meeting space; allowing you more time to focus on your business’s important tasks, like accounting, marketing, or strategy.

As a small business or startup company owner, productivity is key to the success of your business. Utilizing an innovation and coworking space gives you the freedom to focus on your work without worrying about home or office distractions, generate new ideas with the help of other entrepreneurs at the Center, and host your meetings in the same location. Not only does working in our innovation and coworking space provide you with a distraction-free workspace to enhance your productivity, but as a member, you are also eligible to utilize the many amenities of the Union River Center for Innovation! Conduct research, develop websites, interact with client emails, or monitor your business’s social media feeds with our high-speed internet access. Complete your small printing jobs with our powerful printer, copier, scanner, and fax machine, or focus on your work without having to worry about incoming calls or visitors with our dedicated reception service! During Maine’s warmer months, complete your work against the backdrop of our peaceful outdoor workspace along the shores of the Union River. The possibilities of the work you can accomplish are endless at the Union River Center for Innovation.
