Just six months after initiating interest in creating a co-working space in West Hartford, entrepreneur John Paul Vaselina’s vision has come to fruition.
WeHa Works opened October 3 in a prime location on Farmington Avenue in West Hartford Center that has plenty of natural light and a rooftop deck.
The co-working space currently has nine members with room for expansion. Monthly membership includes a dedicated desk, access to conference rooms, high-speed internet, and unlimited cold brew coffee.
The space is geared toward entrepreneurs, small businesses, remote workers, startups, and creative professionals.
“The goal was to create a collaborative community and work environment in West Hartford,” explains Vaselina, who works remotely for a San Francisco based company from the space.
The current membership is comprised largely of other work from home employees, a few small businesses, and one startup.
In addition to co-working, Vasellina has found another niche in matching event planners of professional events and large meetings with available venues in West Hartford.
In his search for an appropriate location, Vaselina was contacted by Fathom, a West Hartford-based marketing company, which supported the co-working concept and offered to share its office space.
“It’s a perfect collaboration,” says Vaselina, who adds that he’s “incredibly happy with the outcome and community support.”
With a huge smile, he says he thinks he has found his calling. “Creating this workspace has been incredibly fulfilling. I help make people’s work days happier.”
