Explore the 1E Collaborative Space on April 2

After a six-month pilot, the collaborative workspace in the Richmond Times-Dispatch building is about to go public. Join Times-Dispatch Publisher Tom Silvestri at an open house to see and discuss the new 1E space this Tuesday, April 2, from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. at 300 East Franklin Street.

Called 1E, the 4,500 square-foot open space will have up to eight tenants working in dedicated office spaces and sharing common work areas. Tenants also have access to meeting space in the building, as well as off-street parking.

One of the drivers for the collaborative space is to create new opportunities for the team at the Times-Dispatch and its parent company, World Media Enterprises, to interface with local entrepreneurs. The real goal is to create a vibrant, energetic community of small business collaborators in the heart of downtown Richmond.

As the first tenant in 1E, Floricane has not only seen real benefit from the location and setting of the space, but has enjoyed being part of an emerging culture at a time of growth and change in Richmond and within the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

If you’ve got a small business, a yen for collaborating with others and a bit of zest, you might find the 1E space an ideal home. We hope to see you at the open house next week.
