WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Starting a new business is no easy task.

It takes money. It takes time. And in today’s ever changing environment, it takes an easy outlet to work out of.

Grow is the latest addition to a trend of coworking stations in Wilmington, offering a news establishment for startups and new entrepreneurs.

Coworking spaces have become a common site in Wilmington giving new entrepreneurs, like Leisha Langston, a new space to work out of.

“I just think it’s something that is worth everyone’s time to investigate and see if that is the environment that you want to put yourself into while you’re trying to grow your own endeavor and start something new especially,” Langston said.

Grow co-owner, Adrienne Vendetti, says the best part of a coworking space is you can combine ideas and work together with other entrepreneurs.

“The beauty of a coworking space is that you feel like you have co-workers and really there is no office drama because everyone is kind of doing their own thing. The brilliance too is if you need a graphic designer or you need people of certain skills, there’s probably a member of the co-working space who does that,” Vendetti said.

Coworking spaces pop up more and more in the area and people like Vendetti see this as the perfect place to set up.

“The growth in Downtown Wilmington in itself is really just exploding right now, so I think for us to start a coworking space called Grow where people are coming and growing in a community that’s growing. Its just really awesome and I think that it’s going to do really well, and we’re really pumped for the future,” Vendetti said.

Grow is officially open for business but the owners are capping their membership at 35 members.

So you may have to wait longer to be apart of the new space.
