2014 Highlights

2014 proved to be a big year for CoWorkTampa. We experienced our highest number of memberships since our opening in 2012, added a new suite downstairs, and even received some awards along the way.

Here’s the list of the year’s Top 10 highlights:

  1. The Tampa Award Program selected CoWorkTampa as the “2014 Best of Tampa Awards for Coworking Space,” recognizing the company’s contributions to the community and the U.S. economy.
  2. The Tampa Hackerspace started in our 1st floor as a KickStarter campaign, raised over $15,000, grew to capacity, and moved into their own space in August.
  3. We spearheaded the Florida Coworking Passport program, which now consists of 15 coworking spaces across the state.
  4. The highly anticipated renovations were completed in October and added 2,000-square-feet to CoWorkTampa, including six new offices, a living room area and bean bag lounge.
  5. After attending Orlando’s Upstart Expo at the Aloft Hotel Downtown, we played host to Tampa’s Upstart Expo in November and connected techy graduates with up-and-coming startups.
  6. The Tampa Bay Business Journal nominated us as one of the Coolest Office Spaces in Tampa Bay!
  7. In March, Lyft launched from our space and gave us a big, pink, furry mustache as a parting gift.
  8. Ad2 Tampa Bay hosted a few events at our space, including an Internship Speed Dating event and an enthusiastic presentation by Daniel Alvarez, Hispanic Political Director for the Rick Scott campaign.
  9. We threw the best Grand Re-Opening party Tampa’s ever seen.
  10. We started a new monthly tradition–The Cocktail Creation Class, brought to you by bourbon, gin, vodka and more!

What’s in store for 2015? More members, more partnerships, and definitely more cocktail classes!
