Are all of Buzz Media Solutions’ employees currently based at Urban Co-works?
Five of our seven employees are based at Urban Co-works. Then our advisor Gary works from home and Maga; our Graphic Designer works from Venezuela.
How did you hear about Urban Co-works and why did you become apart of Urban Co-works?
Previous to joining Urban Co-works, Buzzmedia was located in a collective of private office, several doors down from Urban Co-works. We found out about Urban Co-works through Metroplex, which was looking for people to become tenants of Urban Co-works. Buzz decided to become apart of Urban Co-works because we felt Urban Co-works would be a great place to network, meet new people, and collaborate with others.
Why did you base your company in Schenectady?
When deciding where to locate our company, there were many cities to choose. We choose Schenectady because we saw promise in the growing city; the city was captivating and exciting. Since, locating in Schenectady, we have seen much change being made to the city.
What is the most surprising aspect you found with co-working?
The most surprising aspect of co-working is the ability to collaborate with others; people are very willing to help one another. For example, there was a time when we needed a photographer on short notice: luckily a photographer was based at Urban Co-works and was able to help us with our project.
Overall, while I use to be someone who liked working in isolation, being at Urban Co-works, having a fun and exciting environment, has allowed me to meet new people.
