Special 5th Anniversary MindShare Workspace Holiday Party Invitation Dec 6, 5-8 PM ET, Please RSVP & Canadian CoWorker eMag. Top News Stories. Events and More! Vol. 4 Issue 6

Dear Colleague,
Happy Global Entrepreneurship Week! As I reflect back on 5 years since launching Canada’s first shopping mall-located coworking space I am grateful for the many entrepreneurs we served who took a chance on a new store concept that had never been done.
It’s always a bit daunting to take a leap of faith into the entrepreneurship world. Three key tips I offer startup founders: solve a real problem, do your homework to flush out a rock solid business plan and finally execute with passion.
Speaking of small business startups, here’s a great opportunity to tap into the Canada Digital Adoption Program. We are pleased to announce our partnership with Logics Technology in offering this very generous grant program to help you innovate and accelerate your growth. Read more in this issue below. Feel free to drop me a note robert@mindshareworkspace.com to arrange an exploratory meeting.
SAVE the DATE! We are excited to invite you to join us to celebrate our 5th Anniversary Holiday party Tuesday, December 6, 5 – 8 pm at the MindShare Workspace, Erin Mills Town Centre. Please RSVP. Join us to learn more about our expansion plans, enjoy local entertainment, network with community leaders & members over fine food and holiday cheer!

Dear Colleague,
Welcome to Summer! It’s great to be back after a busy month of travel to various professional learning conferences, scoping out prospective coworking locations and events throughout North America. One thing I realized is how much I missed our workspace, and in particular our community that is made up of passionate entrepreneurs who want to make an impact. It’s about the people and very much a family atmosphere.
On that note, do plan to join us tomorrow at 1pm for our monthly Friday Feast potluck! We are thrilled to have Mississauga’s very own, Patti Jannetta, singer & songwriter, who I’m honoured to be teamed up with on the committee hosting the 10th Anniversary Mississauga Italfest August 12-13 at Mississauga City Hall, Celebration Square.
I’m excited to share that as things return back to a sense of normalcy, we’ve accelerated our conversations and plans in Port Credit for coworking site locations with our friends at Lakeview Village featured in this report as well as with Ward1 Counsellor Stephen Dasko who has been immensely supportive.

The Canadian Coworker Spring March eMagazine Presented by MindShare Workspace CEO Message of Growth! > Friday Feast is Back!– Launch of MindShare Investment Club. Join us March 25! Pls RSVP>>MindShareTV ICTC WIL Podcast, IDEA Mississauga Launch, Top 5 News Stories! Vol. 4 Issue 2

Dear Colleague,
Happy Spring! Coworking has come of age with residents of Mississauga appreciating the importance of a balanced lifestyle and the notion of  #liveworkplaylearn in your local area; which in large part inspired the MindShare Workspace business concept. We are seeing a strong demand for offices and the hybrid work spaces as not everyone has a good setup at home, or just need a change of scenery to work, or learn.

We are thrilled to be re-opening with a sense of normalcy as we scale up our capacity.  Hence, we are hopeful and incredibly optimistic that 2022 will be pivotal year for you to cease the moment and create new opportunities for growth.

The caveat is that we can’t let our guard down fully yet. Something that we’ve advocated at Mindshare in order to keep our members safe. And, knock on wood, we’ve had zero issues during the past two years.
We’re also witnessing a greater appetite for people to start their own business as a lifestyle choice, one of the positive outcomes of the pandemic is the realization that one needs to take control of their lives to follow their passion.
