Adam Paulisick is the epitome of a doer. I’ve always admired his nonstop energy, whether he’s building entrepreneurial communities through Fygment, helping entrepreneurs get “Unstuck” every Monday morning, teaching at the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon, or crisscrossing the country with his many other ventures. And if all of that is not enough, his latest venture, called The Shop, unleashes a “neighborhood workspace” in Homewood.
The Shop is a coworking space with a twist. “We want The Shop to be a gathering spot for entrepreneurs to work, create and network,” says Adam. “But instead of paying us a monthly fee, members will donate 5-10 hours of their time per month to Homewood.” Members of The Shop will act as mentors to neighborhood residents aspiring to work on their own projects, start their own businesses and make their own difference in the community.
“And when it’s not acting as a gathering place for members” says Adam “we’ll be putting it to good use with community programming.”
Learn more via The Shop’s Facebook page. Or even better, visit, plan or attend an event there. We’re planning our own really soon.
