Female-oriented coworking operator Hera Hub will expand into Chicago through a partnership with Expansive Workspace.
Through the deal, Hera Hub will be embedded into Expansive’s River North location on West Superior Street, where it is expected to open on October 3.
“Our partnership with Expansive will help us achieve our mission to support female entrepreneurs in building successful and impactful companies,” said Felena Hanson, founder of Hera Hub.
“Chicago is a dynamic city with so many smart and talented leaders, we are excited to be a part of this ecosystem. We offer a unique blend of a strong business accelerator and collaborative coworking community which is why Hera Hub has continued to thrive over the past three years.”
This growth comes at a time when female-focused coworking spaces are at a crossroads, with coworking veteran The Wing shuttering its business for seemingly the last time recently. However, Hera Hub’s approach through partnerships could make all the difference between its success and The Wing’s failure.
