New Workspace Concept Comes To The Baton Rouge Area
Local Entrepreneur announces the launch of a needed space for small businesses
Baton Rouge, LA – Local entrepreneur, Marie Powell, announces the opening of The Brewery. This August the doors opened for small businesses to experience a new concept offering meeting space for teams.
“As a small business owner, who cares about culture, innovation and team building, for years I’ve searched for an offsite facility like this that I could rent for the day or even just a few hours. Unfortunately, Baton Rouge is full of large meeting spaces that are not ideal for small teams and businesses for a short period of time.” said Powell.
The Brewery is a workspace that aims to address the needs of many local small businesses, organizations or nonprofits, who may have selected to implement a permanent or semi-permanent work-from-home policy due to the pandemic. The building is designed for small groups (less than 12) who need to hold an occasional group meeting or series of meetings in an inspiring, functional location. Uses could be for collaborative brainstorming sessions, team building exercises, training sessions, company retreats and more.
“There are other co-working spaces (in the area), but nothing focused completely on meeting rooms. This building concept will meet the needs of many small businesses and organizations that need a tech-savvy, inspiring workspace for small teams to gather and do some amazing work together.” Powell said.
Due to the recent events of COVID-19, there has been an increase in companies implementing more flexibility for their teams and improving work-from-home allowances. Some of these companies are either forgoing or reducing the footprint of their commercial office space to save overhead costs.
We also know that humans require and crave collaboration and face-to-face, personal interaction. Too much remote work can lead to burnout, lack of culture and team building and sometimes lack of inspiration and creativity.
We are offering a unique workspace environment for small groups who want to gather, collaborate, create new ideas and build a strong team. This is a new concept to Baton Rouge and solves a unique business need.
The Brewery is the brainchild of Marie Powell, a small business owner, entrepreneur and innovative leader with 20+ years of strategic branding and advertising experience. In 2010, she started her own firm, Brew Agency, with a clear purpose in mind – to build a flexible environment for family-centric people where remote work and flexible schedules were supported and encouraged. The Brewery has been an extension of this purpose – to create an environment where people can be inspired to collaborate and create something amazing.
