On the heels of international expansion, female-focused coworking space and business accelerator Hera Hub has signed a new licensee in Temecula, California. This will be the company’s 8th location in the U.S., which will further Hera Hub’s mission of supporting over 20,000 women in the launch and growth of their business by the end of 2020.
Leading Hera Hub’s expansion into Temecula is Dr. Alisha Wilkins. “Women business owners are excited to have Hera Hub coming to Temecula because they find working from home, or the local coffee shop, to be isolating and distracting, which makes it difficult for them to be productive.
The Hera Hub coworking model is unlike any other coworking space. In addition to providing members with a place to work and a professional environment to meet their clients, Hera Hub equips women entrepreneurs, freelancers, consultants, and business owner with the hands-on tools they need to build and grow their businesses,” says Wilkins.
Dr. Wilkins is an organizational psychologist who has conducted extensive research on the challenges individuals experience developing psychological connections with each other when communicating almost exclusively through the use of technology. Dr. Wilkins has a long history of building and connecting individuals and communities, and a deep level of knowledge for the unique working environments of remote workers.
She has worked on women issues for over fifteen years and in her role as a state-appointed commissioner to the CA Commission on the Status of Women & Girls, where she serves as chair, continuing her dedication to advancing women through her work on pay equity and girls in STEM.
Felena Hanson, Hera Hub’s founder, says, “I am thrilled to have Alisha on the Hera Hub team. Her passion for supporting women is a big part of the reason we awarded her the license for south Riverside County. Her strong ties to public and private organizations will allow her to bring together community in one central space. Support networks, like Hera Hub, are critical to the continued growth of the region, which has been driven by favorable real estate prices and the wine industry.”
Hera Hub’s shared workspaces serve women across multiple industries, from biotech, high-tech, business operations, legal advisors, and tax professionals to artists, designers, educators, and creative experts. Weekly educational seminars, intensive workshops, and one-on-one mentoring strengthen the business acumen and ties among members. While Hera Hub was designed by women, it is open to all independent workers who value collaboration and community.
In the San Diego Union-Tribune, Felena Hanson shares, “Temecula’s population is growing rapidly given the cost of living and attraction as a wine region,” Hanson said. “A segment of the population works for San Diego-based companies and find the commute increasingly difficult. Having a local remote workspace option is attractive.”
Pop-up coworking days and workshops will begin February 2019 and the doors will officially open summer 2019.
