SAN DIEGO, Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Female-focused coworking space Hera Hub signed its first licensing agreement on September 15th, officially expanding the business to Sweden. The Southern California-based business, which launched in 2011, is the first workspace for women to expand bi-coastal in the U.S. and now internationally. This will continue to further Hera Hub's mission of supporting 20,000 women in the launch and growth of their business by 2020.
Sophia W Renemar, innovation consultant and NLP practitioner, is leading Hera Hub's expansion into Sweden. She will begin by building the community, while she looks for space for the first location near Stockholm, Sweden.
"As soon as I experienced the community in California, I knew I wanted to bring the concept to Sweden. I'm excited about the opportunity to strengthen female entrepreneurship and the social impact here. I'm convinced that the feminine way of building and growing a business will have a great impact on future generations," says Renemar.
According to the Dell 2016 Women Entrepreneurs Cities Index, Stockholm is ranked 4th in the world for female entrepreneurs. "We see Sweden as the perfect market to expand Hera Hub's reach, not only because it's a hotbed for female founders, but also because Scandinavia is ahead of the curve in equality for women and technology innovation," says Felena Hanson, Hera Hub's founder. "Sophia Renemar is a natural connector, the perfect person to lead and support women in the region."
Hera Hub's shared workspaces serve women across multiple industries, from biotech and high-tech, business operations, legal advisors, and tax professionals to artists, designers, educators, and creative experts. The spaces, which offer an open layout, lend to collaboration across industries. Weekly educational seminars, intensive workshops, and one-on-one mentoring also strengthen the business acumen and ties among members. While Hera Hub was designed by women, for women, it is open to all independent workers who value collaboration and community.
