AHA MEDIA was pleased to attend BOB’s Christmas Open House at Main and Pender in Vancouver.  Their new location was beautifully decorated and very spacious… located right at Main and Pender in Vancouver

Based in Vancouver B.C., Building Opportunities with Business (BOB) is a non-profit organization that is championing an inclusive revitalization process for the inner-city that values existing businesses and residents. BOB is a connector, a resource and a facilitator working to: strengthen the inner-city’s community capacity; identify and build on untapped business opportunities; improve employment opportunities and retention; and increase investment in Vancouver’s inner-city.

Co-Working Opportunities are available at BOB.
To further our mission we would like to make available to select partners, individuals, and businesses the main floor of 163 East Pender Street. We hope that this open shared work space can contribute to the revitalization of the inner-city by providing a space for creative professionals to flourish, for ideas to percolate, to cross pollinate, for businesses to grow, a place where stuff gets done.

What we’re offering is a work surface, be it a desk, a chair, a table, a couch, or the bay window, wherever you’re most comfortable.

Of course we’ll offer wi-fi and other niceties such as an electronic white board and a projector to facilitate discussion and creative thinking. There’s a fridge for your food, a microwave, filtered water cooler, and secure storage for your bike.

The price is a flat $200 per month and includes keyless access.

We’re looking for creative professionals, progressive thinkers, the socially responsible and ecologically conscious who want to be surrounded by others of like mind.

Folks who want more than a cubicle and a 9 to 5 and dream of bigger things and a better Vancouver to call home.

If this sounds like you, contact Andrew “Muskie” McKay 778-328-7672 or write coworking@bobics.org

    Thanks for coming April, you’re welcome to be our guest any time.

    We’ve had a half dozen or so guests today. We’re letting people work too, and of course we’re letting people try before they buy in February and January.

    I gotta work on my posing, plus I need to lose weight in 2010 and I’ll probably get rid of my Movember Fu Man Chu real soon now.

    Yes, we all need to lose weight. April says there’s a group working out of Oppenheimer Park that will give us everything from shoes to hats and training to run the Sun Run. I’m in!
