Joe Erwin’s co-working venture, Endeavor, has signed on its first nine creative services members, with plans to co-locate in the ONE building in downtown Greenville in May. Erwin announced the venture in early March after ending his 29-year career with Greenville-based advertising firm Erwin-Penland.
“Our initial focus has been on members who’ll occupy permanent space within Endeavor — to build a foundation of thriving creative companies before layering in an even broader range of members,” said Erwin. “We’re especially excited that several of these charter members are from firms who’d been operating outside of Greenville. One of our core goals is to be a home not just to Upstate creatives and companies, but to attract professionals from outside this area, ultimately expanding our creative class. It’s exciting to see that already starting to happen.“
Members extend to those outside the Greenville market looking to expand locally, including Spartanburg-based A-LINE Interactive, as well as Savannah, GA,-based DX Marketing.
The nine initial members span a variety of creative services specialties, including video production, web development, brand marketing, commercial printing and media planning and buying. Erwin plans to offer training opportunities, networking events, business consulting and mentorship to member, and to leverage companies’ experience to support other Endeavor members.
Each member will have office space or a private desk with 24/7 access to the 20,000-square-foot space. The co-work offers 24/7 memberships (starting at $450 per month) as well as daytime memberships during work hours Monday through Friday (starting at $125 per month). Membership includes access to conference rooms, office equipment, Internet, an in-building gym and networking events.
