Last week, we hosted our annual holiday party to help all of our awesome member companies to network and get to know each other. The party was co-sponsored by member company Next Step Staffing, and was a venue to ring in the holidays and the New Year. Members came to enjoy the festivities from MicroOffice and its Coalition coworking spaces from across Midtown, including our Flatiron, Chelsea, Midtown West, and Times Square locations. The party was organized by members of our Community Manager team, who made sure that there were plenty of holiday-themed drinks, snacks, and cocktails to keep the party moving all evening.
Event co-sponsor, Next Step Staffing is a member at Coalition’s Flatiron location. Next Step Staffing is a boutique staffing agency specializing in the tech industry, matching IT professionals with corporations, financial institutions, and tech start-ups. The Community Manager of their location, Emma Larson, commented that the Next Step team has been proactive community builders, and hopes to have many more events with them. “They were instrumental in making the event a success!”
Events like this remind us that starting your own business is almost as much about the people you’re working near as it is about the space you’re working in. We’re excited to end 2014 with even more energy than we started with!
