In her presentation on community building, Ashley G. Scott explains why co-working is the answer for isolated entrepreneurs. The main reason behind this is co-working and being in an open office connects you to other people.
The presentation on community building repeatedly states entrepreneurs are not just talkers, but doers who are active in their problem-solving. She discusses the co-working studio in Lafayette she manages at length and how she has seen first hand how co-working makes life easier for doers. While these entrepreneurs are not needy in the traditional sense, their projects could have a large impact on bigger cities and around the world. As such, the speaker encourages people to support their local businesses and to encourage others. One way to do this is to offer up your own networks to those embarking on new ventures.
