Workhaus “Elevated” Our Spadina Lounge

By September 27, 2019 No Comments

Workhaus opened it’s doors at our Spadina location last night to host our very own open Haus with Elevate, one of the world’s fastest growing tech festivals that’s being held in Toronto.

We decided to bring the Elevate community into our space as the perfect introduction to our community of members, coworking as a whole, and the Workhaus model of Canadian community first.

Our Workhaus members were given the opportunity to set up a booth as an introduction to their business, their products and their team. It was the perfect environment to network with like minded entrepreneurs working within similar fields.

Our goal was to engage with the community and to create our own little Workhaus hub. According to our Director of Growth, Jessica Bhola:

“We’re bringing together the Workhaus brand with tech leaders. We want our space to be a hub of networking. A space for leaders to shape their business while this surrounded the Elevate King West activations.”

So, which of our Members set up booths?
