Adds Suwanee to List of THRIVE | Initiative Locations to Drive Community Engagement
ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–THRIVE, a flexible workspace solution with a commitment to philanthropy and community involvement, today announced it is a major sponsor for the annual Suwanee Fest in Suwanee, GA. This year the Suwanee Fest is Sept. 17–18 and visitors can meet the THRIVE team in two tent spaces to learn about its coworking space, community involvement and philanthropic microdonation platform. Through the Progressive Web Application, members can support local Suwanee causes by rounding up purchases to the nearest dollar and donating that change from everyday transactions. Local economies benefit with participating retailers offering discounts driving new business, consumers saving money, and charities receiving donations.
“We are on schedule to open our THRIVE | Suwanee location in early 2023 and as a sponsor of Suwanee Fest we want to demonstrate our commitment to the Suwanee community and be a major part of this beloved fall tradition,” says THRIVE Co-founder and CEO Ramon Gonzalez. “THRIVE | Suwanee supports our vision for coworking spaces that offer a healthy work/life balance and options to meet others in a physical workspace close to home and within walking distance of attractive amenities like restaurants, gyms, and shopping.”
THRIVE will not only be introducing itself as a hybrid workspace alternative, but also as a philanthropic community partner with its THRIVE | Initiative. This 501(c)(3) nonprofit offers a change roundup app that links to credit and debit cards, donating leftover change from everyday transactions to local charities, turning each purchase into an act of kindness. Retailers who offer discounts and micro donations are available starting at Suwanee Fest. The top 50 app users, after the initial 30 days, become founding THRIVE members with each name permanently displayed on a wall within the coworking space and a newspaper advertisement along with a lifetime 20% discount to any THRIVE location. To access the app visit Change4Good.org.
The upcoming THRIVE | Suwanee location fronts Buford Highway and is within a five-minute walk of both Suwanee Town Center and Old Town Suwanee. Featuring an attached coffee shop with a patio and 30 dedicated retail parking spaces — plus additional on-street parking — THRIVE | Suwanee will offer a variety of memberships designed to meet the needs of both large and small enterprises, as well as independent entrepreneurs, freelancers and students. Featuring flex desks, designated desks, private offices, mailboxes, day pass, and multiple meeting rooms with 24/7/365 access, THRIVE’s inspired hybrid workspace experience delivers purpose, flexibility and collaboration. A roster of special events will also be scheduled, including monthly catered breakfasts, lunches and happy hours, as well as adventures and outings (anything from hikes to hang gliding).
In addition to Suwanee, THRIVE | Coworking members have access to workspace in Alpharetta, Milton and Canton, GA, and Columbus/Franklinton, OH. Multiple cities are in development, including Gainesville, Cumming, Duluth, Roswell, Snellville, Kennesaw, Columbus, and Atlanta, GA; Birmingham, AL; Asheville, Chapel Hill, Holly Springs and Winston-Salem, NC; and Charleston and Greenville, SC.
THRIVE | Coworking and the 501(c)(3) THRIVE | Initiative — collectively known as THRIVE — are a groundbreaking workplace/social engagement concept that melds stylish, conveniently located coworking spaces with philanthropy and community involvement. Partnering with civic and economic-development leaders, THRIVE helps stimulate local economies, driving business to nearby retailers.
