Learn More About How We Are Navigating The New Normal (COVID19 Community Update)
Trevor Luck and Joe Schebesch have lived and worked in Oakville since the mid-1980s, so their strong ties to the town were an asset when it came to opening a coworking facility. Located in the heart of Oakville, Venture X Oakville is a modern, comfortable and creative workplace that brings a trendy Liberty Village feel to the suburbs.
Trevor describes Venture X Oakville as an “office solution that is scalable, suiting the needs of a single person operation that’s freelancing, right up to an enterprise client moving out of the downtown core that requires offices for up to 10+ people or clusters of offices that can accommodate 60+ employees.”
With its modern industrial design and architectural appeal, Venture X Oakville offers a wide array of all-inclusive office solutions with flexible terms that start with just a 60-day minimum. “Both Trevor and I are on-site daily working closely with members to create custom office solutions that work best for them without the need for corporate approval or running things up the ladder,” said Joe.
Venture X Oakville offers all the amenities you would expect from a world-class coworking facility, including high-end Herman Miller furnishings, 24/7 access, gigabit level internet, and access to tech-enabled boardrooms. The ample free parking is a key feature for members and will be essential once the pandemic ends, and the facility increases in members and guest visits.
For Greg Stevenson, partner at Axia Real Assets, working at Venture X Oakville has provided a refreshing, productive, and safe environment in which to operate his business. “The space is modern, clean, and the community vibe is incredible. The atmosphere allows me to represent my business in a professional environment and meet with clients in some impressive meeting rooms. The ownership group has been great and looks after all of my needs with business-class amenities and services, right down to the locally roasted coffee. I can’t imagine working anywhere else.”
Venture X Oakville understands that being a positive contributor within the community is extremely important and is committed to doing so in several ways. The coworking facility is helping young businesses get off the ground in a more cost-efficient manner versus having to find traditional office space and committing to long term leases. “Now more than ever, most businesses do not know where they will be in 6-12 months, let alone the 5-10 years a traditional lease requires. Our office solutions also eliminate the need for the capital expenditures in building out space to suit a business’ needs,” said Trevor.
Venture X Oakville is also helping larger enterprise clientele reduce their operating costs from 20-60% when taking the all-inclusive aspect of membership into account. “We are starting to see larger enterprise clients set up satellite or hybrid space in our offices to allow their employees to work closer to home in order to avoid a long, congested commute into the downtown core,” Trevor adds.
For both Trevor and Joe, a strong community is more vital now than ever before. “With everything that we have all gone through over the past 12-18 months, the community vibe and safely connecting with other people around an office has really boosted the mental health of many if not all of our members. We’ve witnessed on many occasions a simple hello, wave, or how are you doing brighten someone’s day and start an engaging conversation between two people that has led to a networking business relationship,” said Joe.
Since the beginning, the owners of Venture X Oakville have been focused on curating a professional community where members feed off each other and create new opportunities. “As we start to come out of this pandemic and are able to host more events such as lunch and learns, or speaker series for specific industries, the community we have built will really start to shine through. This is a fantastic value add for anyone looking to join our space,” Trevor added.
Trevor and Joe are excited about what the future holds for Venture X Oakville in a post COVID-19 world. Since the pandemic, they have seen interest from a much broader market than originally anticipated when they began planning the business in 2018. Venture X Oakville has become a viable option for businesses that are re-evaluating their commercial real estate footprint. The facility currently houses everything from fintech companies, digital marketing firms, engineers in varying industries, real estate investment firms, chiropractic/physiotherapy businesses, and more.
Members like Kim Piller of Sandler Sales and Leadership Training, praised the incredible job Trevor and Joe have done in creating a “beautiful space that is well-kept with a great group of other co-share clients.”
Venture X Oakville is setting out to redefine how work is done. With collaboration at its core, it is creating an atmosphere where members from different professions and experiences come together in one vibrant, creative and productive community.
