FEATURE A PARTNER DAY – 8 Volta Workspaces
Happy First Monday of September! It’s officially the start of the last quarter of the year and we’re sure you are gearing up to end the year on with a bang; or perhaps still trying to salvage the goals you had for 2018. Let’s inspire with you with some encouragement from our second Strategic partner- 8 Volta Workspaces. This spot was the selected venue for our second and interesting (so far ☺ ) Open Space event, centered in networking and having people just vibe and speak on issues affecting the nation as a whole.
8 Volta Workspaces was born out of the personal need of the CEO-Ato Bentsi-Enchill-for an affordable office space in the middle of town. “Before, I worked from coffee shops a lot, but one day, realized that I was spending way too much money there”-he remarks. Also, coffee shops are essentially social spaces so you can’t exactly ask someone to lower their voice or not laugh too loud. The distractions were too many. The three things I need to work are: very fast internet connection, a quiet space and coffee. These components came together to form 8 Volta Workspaces”- he continued. Considering that many co-working spaces in Accra were situated out of areas where he usually worked and even those around him were fairly expensive. He wanted a place that he (and other people) could sit down for a couple of hours and actually do some work. This has been the objective of the space, since conception and he’s glad to say that he is able to attract a niche of like-minded clients who keep coming back. If this sounds like a place you would like to work at, he’ll be more than happy to have you join the family! And will throw in a free cup of coffee in the mix ☺
We’re proud of our partners and 8 Volta Workspaces is no exception. They offer very affordable rates, super fast internet, proximity to banks, restaurants and grocery stores together coupled with a genial boss. Workspace will be featuring our partners’ stories from time to time so stay tuned!
