We are so excited to announce that The “It” Factor productions now has office space within WeWork in NYC !! For those of you who don’t know, WeWork Started just three years ago, and has grown from a concept in late 2009 to ten buildings and over 3500 members in 2013. But their hunger for building great spaces, empowering small businesses and connecting interesting people hasn’t yet begun to be satisfied. They are just getting started. And we can’t wait to grow with them!
Having unique office spaces, shared with other small businesses helps us network right from within our very office space. The “It” Factor Productions will get to see how other companies run, attend “community meetings,” where we can each bounce ideas off of one other, and help each other grow — ultimately forming strong networking bonds that will last a lifetime. From just walking down the hallway, we get an opportunity to meet other small business owners, and form connections with them.
Meaningful connections, both business and personal, are essential to the success of every entrepreneur, freelancer and small business owner. At WeWork, they are constantly striving to make meeting new people and having interesting conversations seem obvious, natural and effortless. From the design of the work space, to the features of their software application, to the ethic of the staff, to the parties and events at the buildings – WeWork does everything they can to support the idea that if one of us is successful, we all benefit!
All of us here at The “It” Factor Productions could not be any more excited to embark on this new journey with amazing company in WeWork! Not only will we be able to network within the office, form bonds with other companies, but we will still be able to continue to grow and help other people achieve success! With the help from we work founders Adam Neumann and Miguel McKelvey, who’s mission is to help businesses be more successful, we anticipate an expansion for the company.
We are even more excited that we will be able to work with other small businesses, both in and out of our comfort zone. Not only will we be able to work with up and coming designers, but also companies who make tools, healthy living supplies, social media companies and even Windows Store App labs! Together, we can all form events to hold right within the office — meaning we can have a fashion show featuring our KMM models dressed by up and coming designers who also have offices within WeWork.
Another amazing thing that WeWork offers to it’s members is the use of ZipCar. Most New Yorkers don’t exactly drive everywhere, but who wants to walk in the rain or snow? At WeWork, they allow you to use ZipCar – which is a rental car, but not your typical rental car. For starters, there is no key to get in the car. You can either use the ZipCard or your mobile app to scan yourself into the vehicle. Then, if you run out of gas, just use the ZipGas card – however, if the card doesn’t work, use yours and you will be refunded 100% when the car is returned. Pretty simple right? Right.
Other WeWork amenities include things like private conference rooms for important meetings — something that will help us out tremendously when we are putting together shows with our new friends and colleagues, lounges to take that well deserved break, a shared kitchen for your meal breaks or to get a cup of delicious hot organic coffee (which we can now share with our new friends!) or maybe even a craft beer or two! They also have the fastest WiFi available, private phone booths and black and white and color printers and copiers.
CEO Alycia Kaback says “Working in the same buildings as AMC and Showtime and with names like Nigel Barker, all of us can’t wait to make stronger connections, and really network with all of these amazing people. Really work together and build amazing partnerships with them, and help each other develop our brands. We tell all of our talent everyday that networking is what this industry thrives on, so we are here to show them first hand how well if works.”
“We will also be leveraging our partnerships within WeWork and our already established connections in sports, fashion and entertainment to form a division of the company that will be bridging the gap between Hollywood, Fashion, Sports and Silicon Alley. In basic terms, we’re connecting early and mid-stage companies with celebrities for endorsement and partnership deals,” adds Kaback.
With locations in both NYC and in Los Angeles, WeWork is one of the leading shared office spaces in the country — and they are hoping to be expanding yet again in the upcoming year. With nearly 4,000 members, everyone at The “It” Factor Productions is looking forward to this new adventure at WeWork!
