Women-focused coworking operator The Riveter has found a new Austin location that will be its first office away from the West Coast
The Riveter says the new space will offer office seating, conference rooms, locally sourced amenities and numerous community programs. This is the first of the company’s nationwide expansion.
“We build our coworking spaces, programming, and events to provide women access to everything they might need to accelerate their businesses and professional lives,” according to the company’s website. “We are proud to focus on women while being welcoming to all.”
Currently, The Riveter has five other locations in Seattle and Los Angeles and hopes to have 100 more by 2022.
By focusing on a gender-related model, The Riveter sets itself apart from major competitors like WeWork.
Amy Nelson, CEO of The Riveter, said that having Austin as the first city in their expansion was perfect for fueling the female founder community.
