Hub Coworking Hawaii has announced a second location in the International Market Place in Waikiki, with a grand opening scheduled for June 2022.
The new Hub location is touted as the first coworking space in Waikiki, bringing the “Work From Anywhere” movement into the heart of Hawaii’s tourism Mecca and providing a flexible 2,500-square-foot space mere steps away from a wide variety of visitor amenities.
The location has begun its “soft opening,” utilizing the front half of the location and providing free coworking until March 21.
“This decentralized work space presents the opportunity to foster community for kama‘āina while still serving the needs of business travelers and remote workers,” said Nam Vu, cofounder of Hub Coworking Hawaii. “Waikiki is a quintessential location in Hawaii with a vibrant community of locals, restaurants and shops.”
As the Hub’s second location, this space will cater to local entrepreneurs, small business owners, as well as traveling professionals in need of a productive and collaborative work environment in the heart of Waikīkī. Membership prices will range from $40 for two days of coworking a month to $350 for unlimited coworking a month.
The Hub Waikiki will be located on Level 2 Mauka Court at International Market Place next to Mitsuwa Market Place and across from Magnolia Ice Cream & Treats.
Since its inception in 2017, “the Hub” — formerly Impact Hub — has allowed people to change they way they work, gather, build community and make an impact together.
Started in Kakaako by George Yarbrough and Nam Vu, Hub Coworking Hawaii is a local multipurpose space for coworking, small in-person and virtual events, meetings, studying, idea smithing, and more. The Hub is home to a range of companies from nonprofits, startups, small businesses and national corporations.
A Hawaii Kai location, crowdfunded in 2019, did not open as scheduled in 2020 due to the pandemic.
