Moving Towards A Better Way Of Working
In The “New Normal”
Coworking is a global movement to create innovative, collaborative and community driven workspaces that move beyond traditional work environments. Our 10,000 square foot facility in downtown Hamilton brings small businesses, startup teams, and entrepreneur professionals of all kinds together to operate their businesses under one roof. Members enjoy private offices or dedicated workspaces, while sharing common amenities (such as conference rooms, kitchen, etc) to keep overhead costs down. We have a unique, supportive community and two community managers on staff.
We strive to be the best place to work
TIP: A CoMotion Commons Membership is about the same price as buying 2 large coffees a day (and our members get free coffee, tea, and snacks!)
While comfortable and convenient, a home office keeps you isolated which can lead to feeling unmotivated and unfocused.
A commercial office can be risky for an entrepreneur just starting out. It's a lot of upfront effort that can be focused on growing your business instead!
CoMotion provides a new way of working that combines the infrastructure of a traditional office with the flexibility and modern vibe of a coffee shop.
For small business owners, having a professional office or workspace to focus on business work is a necessity. Working from home can be isolating, filled with distractions leading to low productivity. Coffee shops are noisy with slow Wi-Fi and missing critical office amenities. Leasing an office can be expensive, risky and overwhelming.
CoMotion solves all of these problems and takes the best of a traditional big office space, but modernizes it and makes it a monthly membership instead of a lease so you can focus on building your business rather than worrying about fluctuating utility bills and office maintenance. Plus we have a supportive community to network with and be inspired by.
Who is best suited for coworking?
Small businesses, freelancers, remote workers, and startups looking to transition out of their isolated work environments such as home offices and cafes and into a creative workspace that will push their productivity to the next level.
What amenities can I expect?
A receptionist to greet guests, mail and printing services, Wi-Fi, meeting rooms equipped with the latest technology, kitchenette, patio, and lounge areas, are just some of the amenities to look forward to at CoMotion coworking spaces.
Why share a space?
Having a community of like-minded individuals working in the same space helps solve the problem of isolation that many freelancers and entrepreneurs experience while working at home.
9 Benefits Of Coworking
Working from home can often make it difficult to separate personal from business work. Being in a coworking space will ensure you’re able to do your job in a distraction-free zone, and develop a more efficient work schedule and routine that fits your lifestyle.
Increase your productivity and motivation to succeed by surrounding yourself with hardworking professionals.
Members get access to book professional meeting rooms to meet clients, which adds credibility to your meetings vs. meeting in a coffee shop or at your home. We also have a receptionist to greet your guests, and coffee or drinks to offer your clients during a consultation or meeting.
Working from home can be isolating. Having a community of like-minded individuals working in the same space helps to solve that problem and lets you escape the distractions of home. It also makes the work atmosphere more enjoyable, and space you can look forward to coming to each day.
Having an all-inclusive monthly fee helps you predict your monthly business expenses and budget accordingly. Our memberships include heat/AC, hydro, infrastructure, maintenance, cleaning, and other costs that would typically fluctuate if you were on your own in a commercial space.
Your coworking space at CoMotion can grow as your business grows. Upgrade your workspace from a shared desk, to a desk that is dedicated to you, to a small or large office as needed.
Community & Networking
The community of businesses within CoMotion can prove to be a valuable source of new business, as well as a great opportunity to work collaboratively on projects. Having other like-minded, ambitious, forward-thinking entrepreneurs close by allows you to draw on the professional expertise of other members on issues relating to your business in an informal environment.
Events & Workshops
We offer and host free events and workshops for members that often include guest speakers from the community or educational presentations from members within the coworking space.
Amounts paid for coworking memberships are tax deductible.
