From the article:
A rapidly evolving business landscape, rise in entrepreneurial spirit, and acceleration of new technologies are pushing boundaries for the office coworking model to evolve and exce.
Forum, a new elevated coworking concept, has launched with a unique approach in the marketplace by providing tenant members with exclusive access to necessary and operational business services as turnkey benefits to enable their companies to thrive. The brand, with its namesake deriving from the definition of a gathering place or medium where ideas are exchanged, will open during June in Coral Gables amid 9,000 square feet.
Designed to meet the needs of today’s modern professional who seeks to hyperfocus on business scaling, Forum is the platform to achieve this approach. It presents 360 degrees of resources necessary for ultimate efficiency by offering members a robust amenity program and the following types of business services:
Business coaching and consulting – personal time with the onsite program director, business plan organization and goal setting;
Admin Support – leave the number crunching to the pros; Referrals to experts, like legal and HR – smoothing the process of hiring new staff or contract negotiation, and
Workshops – promoting ongoing professional growth and thought-provoking content with outside experts.
This unique membership offering is a key differentiator for the brand. More than an amenity, Forum’s focus on business support offers members the benefits of trusted resources to help relieve stress brought on by the challenges of working in or running a modern enterprise, whether a solopreneur or larger operation. Forum’s wide-ranging menu allows immediate access both in-person and virtually.
Forum, which initiated pre-leasing in May is owned and operated by Location Ventures, a Miami-based real estate investment and development firm that integrates a platform of wellness and technology throughout its portfolio in the Coral Gables community.
