Our Story

THE CREATION OF HERA HUB…

After running a marketing strategy business out of her home for eight years, Hera Hub founder Felena Hanson knew she had to find a cost-effective/flexible place where she could escape the isolation and daily distractions. She was excited to stumble on the concept of coworking and shared office space but found most of the existing spaces were designed other audiences.

Given she was dedicated to serving entrepreneurial women, through leadership in organizations like Ladies Who Launch, she began exploring what it would take to start a shared work space focused on serving women owned businesses. After much research, she came up with the idea of building a work and meeting space where enterprising women could connect and collaborate in a spa-inspired setting. She launched the first Hera Hub in August 2011 and has been growing by leaps and bounds ever since!

Why choose this business model?

Currently 30% of U.S. knowledge-based workers are independent (freelancers, consultants, entrepreneurs). This figure is projected to reach close to 50% by 2020. Learn more: MBO partners Independent Workforce report.

Most of these independents work (and will continue to work) from home.  While this can be cost effective and convenient, many experience isolation and report difficulty focusing due to many distractions.

WHY COWORKING IS THE SOLUTION

The coworking business model was conceived to fill gaps between the various options available to independent workers. Shared work space provides these individuals with a professional presence, sense of community, and productive work space.  Coworking attracts those who are looking for connection.  It’s an automatic network of like-minded entrepreneurs who can learn from one another and find new collaboration opportunities.  Shared office space, along with the trend shared economy, are not a trend, but rather the new reality.

WHY WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS AND WHY HERA HUB? 

Women empowering women is more than just a theory. In a Kaufman Foundation study (“Are Successful Women Entrepreneurs Different from Men?” May 2010), women rated their professional and business networks as important contributors to success more highly than men did. It was also found that women entrepreneurs especially benefit from other types of social support and encouragement beyond business.

Several of the identified gender differences in the study indicate that support and encouragement from key people can especially benefit women in their efforts to found successful companies. Many women feel more comfortable in an all-woman environment and typically get to a point of trust much quicker, especially in a safe, supportive environment.

Opening a brick and mortar business is a major life decision. According to the Small Business Administration 50% of all businesses fail in the first year and close to 80% fail in the first five years.  While there are no guarantees, investing in a vetted business model will give you a significant jump start on the market and ensure you don’t make the same costly mistakes that others have made before you.  It also gives you a trusted business partner that is there for you every step of the way.

According to a study by the U.S. Department of Commerce, those who bought into a proven business system more than doubled their chances of business sustainability.  Finally, it’s a heck of a lot more fun to work with and collaborate with other passionate entrepreneurs than being left alone to “figure it out” yourself!
