Coworking spaces have become a popular option for hosting events. These versatile venues can be easily customized to accommodate a wide range of events, from small team meetings to large corporate functions. These spaces offer several advantages over traditional event venues, such as hotel meeting rooms. 

First, Coworking spaces are more flexible and can be customized to meet the specific needs of each event. Second, Coworking spaces are designed to promote collaboration and creativity, making events more productive and enjoyable. Finally, these spaces are typically more affordable than traditional event venues. 

In this episode, we cover how Coworking spaces are an increasingly popular option for businesses of all sizes!

Welcome to the Everything Coworking Podcast Episode Number 12!

Today I talk with Diana Rothschild, current CEO of coworking space Nextspace and founder of NextKids, a highly sought-after combination of coworking and childcare under the same roof. She founded NextKids in partnership with NextSpace, a coworking company with 9 locations in the Bay Area and Chicago. She recently became the CEO.

There is what I would call a desperate cry for the model that Diana is creating. We get right down to unpacking why this model is so hard and Diana shares from her perspective the three critical things you need to have in place to pursue this model.


We also talk about Diana’s perspective on the future of NextKids and the coworking/daycare combo model.
