What if we told you that you didn’t need to rent a traditional office space to be part of a coworking community? With our virtual or event membership, you can work from HAYVN when needed, and also access to our coworking partner spaces across the country.
At HAYVN, we go above and beyond basic mail and call answering services. Each virtual office plan provides membership benefits, from community events to conference room credits and a renowned business address in Fairfield County.
A Spotlight on Virtual Office Memberships
“People often ask me if they can be a part of HAYVN without having a physical office or dedicated desk,” said Founder and Chief Collaborator Felicia Rubinstein. “The answer is yes! HAYVN is constantly evolving, and we provide flexible packages tailored to our members’ evolving workstyles!”
Where you conduct business is just as important as having the tools necessary to ensure things get done efficiently. A virtual office or PO box is a great place to start if you’re launching a brand or looking to establish your business. With this membership, you can work from any location stress-free. Aside from mail and phone answering services, most plans include access to:
- Weekly social events
- Educational sessions on managing and growing your business from industry leaders
- Discounts (or included) private meeting rooms and/or day passes
- A motivating work environment (discounted day pass)
- In-house cowork-first Friday of every month
- Marketing consultations from our signature HAYVN MAVENS program
- Support circles for business and personal development
- Special interest groups in health, wellness and sustainability
Virtual coworking plans provide many of the same benefits as physical coworking plans, but without having to purchase an office. Members can choose from four subscriptions that align with their budget and packed with features unique to cowork spaces nearby.
Flexible and Hybrid Work Culture is Here To Stay
The biggest drawback of working remotely is isolation or lack of motivation. Coworking spaces offer a brighter atmosphere and networking opportunities.
Some of our members start virtually before transitioning to our local private offices in Darien, CT. Marie Patel and Phyllis Yavner discuss why they not only love coming to HAYVN but also how the space has influenced their lives.
Meet Marie Patel, Founder of Girl on The Ball Solutions.
Patel is a business operations extraordinaire and marketing specialist with over 25 years of experience guiding small business owners through strategy, planning, and marketing tactics, so they can get back to doing what they love.
“I became a member in October of 2020,” Patel said. “Since I had just started my business, I was apprehensive about the cost of the membership fee. Seeing all the cool events and networking opportunities I knew that I couldn’t afford NOT to be a member. I joined the very next day and never looked back!”
Before becoming a social member, Patel had participated regularly in several HAYVN Halftimes that summer and was looking forward to joining a local coworking community.
“It was one of the best decisions! I have made numerous connections, engaged with new clients, have become a host of the HAYVN Marketing Hot Seat and have made lots of new friends. I sincerely love the HAYVN community! There is fabulous energy at every event – even when you just walk through the door.”
Meet Phyllis Yavner, Licensed Psychotherapist, Certified Career Counselor, Mental Health Consultant, and speaker offering support to young adults, individuals, and businesses.
Yavner has spent over a decade counseling college students in higher education and many years in her earlier career as a Human Resources Executive on Wall Street. She has a private practice in Darien, where she has lived for 20 years with her family.
“I became a HAYVN member from the very beginning, as one of the founding members,” she said. “ I was eager to join as a virtual member to support a coworking space for women and men in the town where I lived.”
“I also wanted to increase my networking base and uplevel my knowledge and skills around being a solo-preneur! HAYVN has delivered 100%! My membership has been invaluable on so many levels and I highly recommend it to others.”
Yavner is passionate about helping her clients make positive changes in their lives. She just started a part time private office share at HAYVN where she meets clients once a week.
