After bringing its babysitting services to a Hamilton-Lauraville space last year, The Cube Cowork assumed operations of all 15,000 square feet on April 1.
With the move, the Cube is taking over for Function Coworking Community, which ceased operations after more than two years in the Harford Road main street space.
It brings a big expansion for The Cube, which will mean offices, area to host a larger event space, meeting rooms and areas for content creation. And it will be able to grow a staffed play area for children, so that parents can focus on getting stuff done. For cofounder Dr. Tammira Lucas, who leads a number of entrepreneurship initiatives in the city focused on families and economic opportunity, it’s a personal milestone, as well.
“This is much bigger than me expanding a coworking space,” she said. “This is really setting the tone for Black women entrepreneurs and showing them that, there is a possibility to do everything you want to do in business, but also providing a space for Black women to grow their own business and careers.”
