Oakley Entrepreneur Center
The Oakley Entrepreneur Program is designed to strengthen Oakley’s small business and entrepreneur community and help them to grow and expand. In order to help achieve these goals, the City of Oakley has built the Oakley Entrepreneur Center in downtown Oakley. The Entrepreneur Center is located in the upstairs space of the building located at 3330 Main Street, across from the Civic Center Plaza.
The Entrepreneur Center is designed to be the potential next step for Oakley’s start-up and home-based entrepreneurs. As these small businesses grow, there is a need for office space that is more affordable and less capital intensive than typical office space. The Entrepreneur Center is fully furnished, and able to accommodate 12-15 businesses. The 2,200 square foot space include:
- Individual offices (Individual offices have all been leased)
- Large & small conference rooms
- Co-working space
- Internet connectivity through a wireless network
The co-working space includes two co-working desks for four people and a stand-up desk to accommodate two people. In addition there are and lounge chairs. The large conference room can accommodate 10 – 12 people and the small conference room can accommodate four people.
Rent for the individual offices will be $350 per month and $250 per month for the co-working space. Rent payments will include all utilities, access to the wireless network and use of a common printer. Tenants will be expected to provide their own laptops and cellular phones.
In addition to the use of the facilities, tenants in the Entrepreneur Center can benefit from small business programs offered by Oakley’s Economic Development program, including Business Plan training programs, business workshops, coaching and networking activities.
We are excited about the Oakley Entrepreneur Center opening and look forward to better serving Oakley’s small business and entrepreneur community.
