Coworking at HAYVN FAQs

What are the benefits of coworking?

So glad you asked! There are many, including fewer distractions (than at home with the laundry or at the coffee shop with never enough outlets), networking opportunities (because you’re working next to people doing similar stuff to you) and camaraderie (walk in, get a wave, feel the love). At HAYVN our member events and signature programs are legendary – plus they’re included with all memberships. Our flex desk, dedicated desk, and private office members can also use the fitness center, as well as have HAYVN’s professional mail address as their own. Check out our virtual office plans if you’d like us to handle your mail and package receipt, and we can even help you with live phone answering services.

Why create a women-centric coworking space?

In a nutshell: The women who strike out on their own often work in isolation... And at times, they miss their coworkers’ companionship...the motivating morning chats over coffee, colorful brainstorming sessions at the whiteboard and “I’ve got this idea” exchanges. But put them around other women, who are also changing the world with their work, and they thrive. Ultimately, when women work in a beautiful space made just for them — where they can come together, collaborate and do great work — a little magic happens. That’s HAYVN. So, who is HAYVN? Find out here.

Psst ... men can be members too — they are also valued members of our HAYVN community!

Are men welcome at HAYVN?

Absolutely! Men can be members too. Bring your male clients, co-workers or main man to HAYVN and do great work.

We think of HAYVN as a women-centric, inclusive space. That means we’re all about welcoming everyone into our sanctuary.

I’m worried about distractions? What do you think?

Women (and men) come to HAYVN with work to do. So…

We say “Hi” then let you get started. And if you’re feeling focus-challenged, pop in your earbuds with your favorite beta beats — works every time.

One other thing ...

HAYVN members will tell you: they get more work done at HAYVN — in half the time. Sweet.

Can I try out HAYVN?

Yes! Come on in with a day pass and hang with us for the day. We’ll show you around, visit a little then let you get to work. We know you’ll love it at HAYVN so when you join (on any membership or virtual office plan) we will credit the cost of the day pass toward your first month. Psst, it’s super easy to get a day pass and  sign up for a tour.

Membership FAQs

How do your membership plans work?

We’ve designed our plans to make it easy for you to nestle into your HAYVN space. In fact, we’ve got it all laid out right here. Be sure to look at our amenities, events, meeting rooms, HAYVN MAVENS, and other features that make our coworking space much more than just an office space.

Are there monthly minimums for each membership plan, and may I upgrade or downgrade my plan?

Yes, these are the monthly minimums for some but not all membership or virtual office plans. Upgrade or downgrade options may be available based on circumstances, please discuss with a Community Manager.

Which HAYVN membership plans let me get a Google My Business listing?

You can get a Google My Business listing with either HAYVN’s Dedicated Desk or Private Office membership plans which both meet Google’s policy.

Google’s policy says: "Businesses can't list an office at a co-working space unless that office maintains clear signage, receives customers at the location during business hours, and is staffed during business hours by your business staff." Learn more at: http://bit.ly/googlevirtualoffice.

Virtual Offices and Mail Services FAQs

Is it difficult to manage my incoming mail digitally?

It’s easy to manage your incoming mail with our Virtual Office Plans, and we will review every step with you until you are a pro. Mail services are managed digitally through a portal with prompts for you to let us know what you’d like done with your mail. Doesn’t matter where you are, if you have access to a mobile phone, tablet, or computer, you can review the alert we send when you have new mail to review. We send you an image of the outside of each envelope or package and you decide if we should open and scan, forward an important letter, shred, or recycle the mail piece. We can also hold your mail, if desired, for your pickup for 30 days at no additional cost. Please see the virtual office plans and additional services for more specific on each of our virtual office plans.

How do the virtual office and mail plans differ?

HAYVN’s virtual office plans include a prominent professional mail address for your business and marketing collateral, ?unlimited? secure mail and ?package? receipt, convenience, and the ability to manage your mail remotely from your mobile phone, tablet or computer, anytime and from anywhere.

But that’s not all! We have four virtual office plans with different levels of additional HAYVN benefits to fit your changing needs. The Basic Mail Plan is a perfect way to dip your toes into a virtual office with mail services. Our Fleet Plus Plan adds a social membership to HAYVN so you can attend all member events, meet, and mingle with other members and guests. Need some time working quietly away from home or perhaps a room to meet with clients? Our Fleet + 4 Plan adds in the flexibility for your changing needs with monthly credits for day passes or meeting rooms, as you see fit.

Can you explain more about the live phone answering services?

Sure can! Need someone to answer your calls? We can help in two different ways, depending on your needs and budget. Personalized live call answering services of up to 150 calls/month is included in our most comprehensive plan, the Virtual Office Plus Plan, which also includes the flexibility to use monthly credits toward day passes or meeting room credits, and a social membership at HAYVN. Perhaps you don’t feel you will use the day pass or meeting room credits you can also just add personalized live call answering services as an a la carte feature to our other virtual office plans.

Can I get a Google My Business listing with a virtual office plan, or other HAYVN plan?

Unfortunately, Google’s policy does not allow a Google My Business listing with a virtual office plan.

You can get a Google My Business listing with either HAYVN’s Dedicated Desk or Private Office membership plans which meets Google’s policy.

Google's policy says: "Businesses can't list an office at a co-working space unless that office maintains clear signage, receives customers at the location during business hours, and is staffed during business hours by your business staff." Learn more at: http://bit.ly/googlevirtualoffice.
