They’re done by a dedicated team.

The Ensemble team is a unique blend of servant leaders and entrepreneurs who are committed to making our members and guests feel welcomed, supported, and comfortable. The Conductors and on-site Community Manager are highly engaged with the community and attentive to the space.

    CONDUCTORS

    Our Conductors work in our Coworkshare Program and are vital to the day-to-day care of our members, guests, and the space. They serve the community one day a week and are active members. The Conductors are the first smiling face you will see when you arrive and are there to ensure your experience is beyond satisfying.

    The Coworkshare Program was created to provide workspace to emerging entrepreneurs while they are learning how to grow their businesses while expanding their experience as leaders. Conductors receive business coaching along with an inclusive open coworking membership. They also benefit from accelerated relationships with fellow business owners that encourage them and assist with learning how to run a successful business. This program has been thriving since November 2016 and has graduated more than 20 business owners to a higher level. 

    Do you want to be part of a community and have space to connect and collaborate?

    We’re always looking for entrepreneurs and small business owners who can give one day a week to serve as Conductor in exchange for a full-time membership and lots of other benefits.
