It seems that small business incubators and co-working spaces are now popping up all over the Charlotte region – now York County will be opening their first, right in the heart of downtown Fort Mill. The space will be called ‘LOOM’ and will feature shared office space that professionals, creatives, entrepreneurs, and others can use on a monthly membership basis.
They are planning to have space for at least 50 ‘co-workers’ at any given time, meaning there could be well over 100 members involved. They already have 70 people in their meet-up group, and will most likely see a huge surge of interest once the space opens this coming June.
LOOM wants to create a stimulating and productive environment for collaboration and professional growth in Fort Mill and York County. They’ll not only provide a desk, but also a space for innovative interactions with like-minded independent workers in an accessible, inspiring, and sustainable community.
Their name, LOOM, is a tribute to our textile history, yet represents a contemporary take on the traditional art form by giving a place for local talents to “weave” together.
