Happy Birthday Business Lounge!
By: Caitlin Pauline Bourn

This Saturday, July 6, 2013, will mark Business Lounge’s 1st Birthday! We are extremely thrilled to be celebrating this day at the Business Lounge and we could not have done it without the support of many along the way. Within the first few weeks of the Business Lounge opening on Campbell Avenue, the notion of expansion was soon underway due to high demand. It was only two months later that a more spacious, second location was opened in downtown Roanoke on Kirk Avenue for Business Lounge members.

Since opening one year ago, the Business Lounge has had more than thirty-five members use the co-working space available and the number of members continues to grow daily. The Business Lounge has also given university students the opportunity to intern. Emma Haynes, a Business major at Hollins University, is currently interning at the Business Lounge for the summer. When asked about her internship experience Emma stated, “I feel that completing my internship at the Business Lounge has allowed me to make helpful connections and has prepared me for what I will be doing after graduation.”

We would like to give a special thank you to all of those that have been a part of the growth and development of the Business Lounge this past year. We at the Business Lounge could not be more excited to continue providing co-working space for freelancers and entrepreneurs in the years to come right here in downtown Roanoke.
