Co-working space planned

Joe Moss is calling all creatives and entrepreneurs who are tired of working in their distraction-filled home to consider joining his co-working space, 368.blue.

“368.blue is a co-working space for entrepreneurs and creators to connect and collaborate in downtown Winchester,” Moss said.

The co-working space is tentatively opening Aug. 1 in downtown Winchester. Moss said he is hoping to get more interested full-time members before setting an official opening date.

368.blue would offer coffee, desks, tables, conference rooms, one-on-one meeting rooms, high-speed Internet and print-copy capabilities.

There are two membership options, with 12 full-time memberships available for $250 each per month. Full-time members would have 24/7 access and the ability to book the conference room. Basic memberships include 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. access and ability to book one-to-one meeting rooms for $125 per month.

People could also purchase day-passes for $20 with 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. access.

Moss moved to Winchester in early May and started looking for a small office to work because he works remotely from home.

“So I work from home, but I have a couple of kids, and it’s pretty noisy and hard to focus,” Moss said.

Because working from home is not ideal, he wanted to find a place to work as well as network with other entrepreneurs and creatives in the area.

Establishing a co-working space was the best way to do that, he said.

The name and initial idea came from Youtuber Casey Neistat, he said. Neistat created a space called 368.nyc in New York City.

“I like his ideas and how his space is coming together, so 368.blue is my idea of spreading the creativity and collaboration of his space to other cities,” Moss said.

As 368.blue develops and grows, Moss said he’d like to offer options for classes, networking events and more.

“I think for Winchester, it would just help the entrepreneur community to have a place where they can meet,” he said.
