Last night, George Hacks team members attended the GW Innovation and Entrepreneurship Lab (I+E Lab) Partnership Kickoff and Open House at MakeOffices at their new location in the 2000 Pennsylvania Avenue Building.
The kickoff launched the GW IE Lab partnership with Makeoffices that will serve as an on-campus resource to GW students and faculty. The event was a chance to showcase the new space and to allow students, faculty and other attendees to network over some light refreshments.
The coworking space is open to students and staff to come with their ideas and have access to one-to-one advising, office hours with industry experts, workshops, and events. Additionally, the MakeOffices location is equipped with a full kitchen, various working spaces, a full kitchen and even free coffee!
The GW IE Lab also has office co-working spaces that are open to student organizations who can work on their ideas and projects. George Hacks has been provided with two desks in the office where we work to plan our events and interact with team members. We also hold our weekly e-board meetings in the MakeOffices conference rooms.
We are thankful to the GW Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship for the opportunity to have space in the office and look forward to collaborating and innovating with other students, faculty and organizations on campus through the coworking space.
