Entrepreneurs Tim Barton, Matt Druten open second location focused on flexible, private offices for teams of 2–15.
Edison Spaces will open its second Kansas City location in June 2018 at 7900 College Boulevard on the corner of College and Metcalf. The 25,000 square-foot private office space will continue to offer flexible, month-to-month office space for small business, startups, and national companies looking for local Kansas City remote offices.
Similar to the 4400 College Boulevard location, Edison Spaces 2 will boast top of the line office furniture, private WIFI and state of the art tech amenities for all 44 offices.
“We’re excited to open the second Edison Spaces location, once again in Kansas City. Multiple offices serving the Kansas City entrepreneurial and business communities has been a part of the vision for Edison Spaces since its infancy,” said Tim Barton, founder.
Founded in 2017, Edison Spaces has envisioned its purpose to serve as a stepping stone for Kansas City startups and entrepreneurs.
The idea, says Barton is to accommodate the growth of young companies without weighing them down with unnecessary overhead and infrastructure.
“Edison Spaces is the office space we needed when rolling out our startups. A space nimble and quick that we could come in and hit the ground running. Instead, we purchased office space with a long contract, and waited on Wi-Fi, furniture, and office necessities, in some cases, for months. Edison Spaces removes that barrier so small business can come in, plug in their computers and get to work immediately.”
Another perk of Edison Spaces for small business? One flat rate and a three-month minimum.
“We know small businesses are in the process of scaling, but often can’t predict their size in one year, much less three. That’s why we don’t lock them into long-term contracts. They can sign a three-month minimum contract and go month to month following. It’s our goal to help them grow in Edison Spaces and eventually, grow out of Edison Spaces,” says Matt Druten, co-founder, and managing director.
“We developed Edison Spaces out of love for Kansas City and Kansas City small business,” said Druten. “Edison Spaces fills a need in the marketplace for small to midsize businesses who want privacy, security and aren’t interested in co-working.”
