Thrive co-working named national top 10 co-working space


ALPHARETTA, Ga. —Thrive co-working was just named one of the top 10 co-working space in the United States by LiquidSpace.

“We are flattered and honored to have been recognized. It is just so fun to see the friendships and business relationships develop here, which when it comes down to it, is what people are looking for most,” said Ramon Gonzalez, co-founder and CEO of Thrive.

Co-working spaces are popping up all over the country. Unlike traditional office space or virtual offices, co-working spaces are more casual and flexible. They typically don’t require members to sign a lease to join.

As the number of U.S. freelancers goes up, the popularity and the demand for flexible working arrangements has also grown making co-working spaces in high demand.

This type of arrangement is ideal for startups and freelancers who are just looking for a good place to work and be around other people instead of working from home.

Like many other co-working spaces, Thrive provides a membership based community that offers a communal working environment. Members enjoy free coffee, snacks and networking events at the space. In addition, individual office rooms can be rented out for more privacy.

These working spaces are different from the offices that individuals rent in a virtual office or commercial building where they often have to pay a full month’s rent based on lease contracts.

“We are also so excited about the future and the opening of our next location in downtown Alpharetta early 2017,” Ramon said. “We have lots of great things in the works over there. People are really going to love it.”
