A visit to The Village Hive coworking space at the Olde School House in Markham Village brings you into one of the prettiest heritage buildings in the city. With high ceilings, wide open spaces, a historic, cozy feel, and friendly people, it’s the perfect place for an entrepreneur or freelancer to get inspired. Founder Charlotte Kirby tells us why she started this gathering space for remote workers.
“The Village Hive, the first shared coworking space in Markham, creates a community for people to be a part of, people who are otherwise working at home, isolated,” she explains. “It is a space where people can talk to and support each other, and share ideas. There is a private office so people don’t have to meet at the local coffee shops, and it offers a professional location so they do not have to use their home address for couriers and mail.”
