On December 15, 2018, I was fortunate enough to attend the blessing of the first coworking space in Olongapo.
Located on the 4th floor of RM Centerpoint Building, corner Rizal Avenue and R. Magsaysay drive, S & G Hub is the new space in the heart of Olongapo where freelancers and coworkers can now meet and collaborate.
What was just a dream is now a reality. Being someone who personally knows the owner of the coworking space, I can say that it wasn’t just a dream for the owner herself but also a dream she fulfilled for her community.
Virtual assistants, WAHMs and freelancers within Olongapo (or even Zambales and Bataan) will now get to experience working at a cozy place that’s not within just the confines of their own homes. More than just a space to work online, S & G Hub is a community that paves the way to get freelancers to engage with each other, leading to possible collaborations and partnerships.
While it is a small, intimate space, the possibilities are endless for S & G Hub. Shiela May Gonzales Tolentino, the owner who is a freelancer herself, has big dreams for her hub. Collaborations with seasoned freelancers to conduct workshops that would cater to the needs of the freelancing community are also in the pipeline. Talk about empowering each other to grow a productive community!
Since it is also an ideal meeting place, S & G also opens its doors to nearby offices who want to have intimate meetings or small group meetings. Talk about having a productive output even outside the office!
Students will likewise find S & G a conducive place to do their group study. As it is a community, students can even ask their “Ate” or “kuya” freelancers on some tips on their group activity.
Officially launching on Dec 17, S & G Hub will open its doors to the public starting 9am. As a warm welcome , this coworking space is giving its visitors their first 2+ 1 hour promo. Pay for 2 hours and get to have your 3rd hour for FREE plus free brewed coffee or iced tea!
Nearby offices who would like to hold their meetings at an intimate place like S & G can also avail of their special company rates. Just visit their Facebook page to inquire.
