Coworking PRICE DROP!

We pride ourselves on being competitive in our pricing. Also, coworking is not our core business (though it’s an important part of our business), so we have more wiggle room than most would. After a review of our pricing structure, we’ve decided to drop our monthly membership price to $99. That’s right, all the comforts you’d expect, but for under a hundred bucks. This is not a special or an introductory price. This is the price, going forward. Even better? For a limited time, when you sign up for your first month, you get an additional week free. Five weeks for the price of four. That’s just a few bucks a day! Why WOULDN’T you give it a try?

Why Project 3810?

There are a lot of great spaces out there, no doubt. You might ask, why should we use Project 3810 instead of one of the dozen similar spaces in town? While not every space is the right fit for every business, areas we feel particularly strong in are scale and flexibility. We offer among the best growth options (outside owning your own building) for a startup. We don’t expect you to be with us forever (that’s actually a bad thing for your business), but if you start here, you’ll be able to grow here. And we make every effort to provide our clients with maximum flexibility. For example, we have NO lease term requirements for our private offices. While we will have you to sign a lease for legal reasons, we won’t lock you in to a time frame. Whether you need space for an hour (conference/event), a day (coworking), a month (private office), or longer, we’ll do what you need to make it work. Come check us out. Let’s see how we fit.

Get help from SCORE at Project 3810

Project 3810 now has a certified SCORE mentor on-site. ANY small business in Oklahoma City needing help can visit us if our mentor’s area of expertise fits your needs. For the purposes of integrity, if you’re a tenant or a prospective tenant, we’ll have to refer you to another mentor, but you can still have your mentor meetings right here at Project 3810, as SCORE has an open invite to use our space. No more dealing with the parking and security hassles of the downtown SCORE office!

Coworking Update

Coworking Room

We launched our coworking space just last month, but we knew there was more to do. This month, with the help of our design consultant, we made the space a little more cozy. We figured, mid-century design for a mid-century building. Come see for yourself and let us know what you think!

Innovation Past, Present, and Future

At Project 3810, we’re focused on being a center for entrepreneurship and innovation, and we picked the right location for the task. Innovation has been happening at our space for a long time. For decades our building (built in 1959) was the headquarters of the Little Giant Pump Company, an innovator in its field. That company was acquired in 2006 by Franklin Electric, who shut down this location in 2012, paving the way for our endeavor. Consider being a future innovator at our space. We have everything you need to start and grow, this site has a history of innovation, and that’s only the beginning of our story.

Open House and Ribbon Cutting

Project 3810 was established in July 2017, and after an initial round of renovations in August and September, we opened our doors to tenants in October. Our first batch of tenants have moved-in and are operating smoothly, and we’re ready to grow and improve with the new year. With the help of the Northwest OKC Chamber, we’ll be cutting the ribbon and opening our doors to the public to see where we are and where we’re going. Please join us on February 12th at 1pm!

Coworking in Oklahoma City

Coworking Room

There are a number of really great coworking options in Oklahoma City, any of which we’ll gladly refer folks toward. You’ve heard about them we’re sure. StarSpace, Halcyon, The Barn, The InnovationStation, The Collective, The Rise, among others. Fantastic places, all.

Project 3810 is throwing our hat into the coworking ring in 2018, and hopefully we can approach the greatness of those spaces. Come check us out, give us some feedback. But know that this is most importantly part of our ongoing effort to be of service to the entrepreneurial community throughout the full business life-cycle. Start with a desk, hopefully graduate to an office, perhaps later to a multi-office suite, maybe add some warehousing at some point, and, ideally, eventually move out of our space, to your own building, with a solid business foundation beneath you.

We’ve opted for very straight forward pricing options for this effort. Either you’re a non-member and you pay by the day, or you’re a member and you pay by the month. It will be $15/day to rent a desk, on a first come, first served basis, with no additional services, and business hours only access. However members, at $150/month, will get all hours access, as well as access to our services. We look forward to seeing you soon.
