East Stroudsburg University’s Business Accelerator Program announced its new Coworking Space on Friday, September 13, 2019 at ESU’s Innovation Center Second Floor, 562 Independence Road in East Stroudsburg. This new space is an ideal setting for up-and-coming entrepreneurs and business owners interested in an innovative and collaborative professional working environment.

“Launching the new Coworking Space is the next step in creating a hub of innovation in Monroe County. By opening this space to entrepreneurs and professionals, we are excited to see the cross-collaboration that occurs as diverse populations come together to inspire new ideas, foster community and make an impact in the region,” said ESU Director of Entrepreneurship Keith Modzelewski.

Members of ESU’s Coworking Space will have access to Wi-Fi, ESU research tools, business mentoring from the Business Accelerator seasoned staff, and the opportunity to engage and collaborate with other business owners. Membership for the co-working space at ESU starts at $150 per month.

In addition to the co-working space, ESU continues to offer its Business Accelerator Program which offers various-sized offices and wet lab spaces for both national and international early-stage companies.

The development of the Coworking Space at ESU is funded in part by a grant from the Economic Development Administration (EDA) that supported a 16,000 sq. ft. expansion of the Business Accelerator.
