When coworking spaces began to emerge about a decade ago, many of them quickly developed a reputation for being loud environments that made it difficult to do great work.

At the extreme end of the spectrum, coworking facilities became known as “broworking” spaces that essentially replicated the worst parts of frat houses: beer drinking, distracting music, and loud noises.

HAYVN is a female-focused professional space that seeks to disrupt the coworking industry with a “proworking” offering built with women in mind. HAYVN members can work out in the open as a part of a community of engaged professionals, roll up their sleeves and hunker down in a private office, or spend a little bit of time doing both.

More than simply a place to work, HAYVN is a lifestyle brand. The Darien-based coworking space offers a wealth of resources to its members (more on that later). We’re also in a brand-new building, so you’ll get to enjoy comfortable new furniture and a modern, engaging atmosphere that’s filled with tons of natural light.

How, specifically, does HAYVN differentiate itself from other coworking spaces? Let’s take a look.

3 Unique Ways That HAYVN Shines

Choosing where to work is a major decision. Work is so important, and with so many options to consider, it can be tricky to figure out the perfect place for you to grow your business.

We may be a bit biased, but we believe that HAYVN is just what you need.

Here are three unique value adds we deliver that you’d be hard-pressed to find under one roof anywhere else.

1. We offer tons of professional services and helpful resources

HAYVN offers its members a professional space—not just an “open” space that characterizes most typical coworking facilities.

We understand, however, that to help professional women reach their full potential, we need to do more than simply offer a place to work. To this end, we also provide a wealth of personal and business resources to all of our members—some of whom, with certain membership levels, will have 24/7 access to our facility.

For example, if you’re in the middle of a career transition, you can work with folks who can help you revamp your resume, build a comprehensive LinkedIn profile, launch an effective job search, and network with people who can bring you one step closer to landing your dream job.

HAYVN members will also have access to business support services, a business address, meeting rooms, printers, IT support, high-speed WiFi, and more. You can even sign up for a class that teaches you how to create a podcast (which you can do in our podcast room!). We’re also reaching out to companies like Adobe and Moo to form relationships that will help our members run their business even more effectively.

Beyond that, members will also have the opportunity to attend many networking events. We’ll have author talks, art shows, nutrition classes, and a whole lot more.

Add it all up, and there’s something for everyone at HAYVN.

2. We’re conveniently located and invite you to become part of our community  

HAYVN is located on the Boston Post Road in Darien—right off Interstate 95 smack dab in the middle of lower Fairfield County. With restaurants and places like Trader Joe’s and Costco right down the road, you couldn’t ask for a more convenient location.

We’re also a short walk or quick Uber ride away from the train station, so you’ll have an incredibly easy time commuting to New York City if you need to—or welcoming clients from the city to our HAYVN.

What’s more, HAYVN members instantly become part of our robust community. Share a cup of coffee with some new friends and bounce business ideas off of them every day

We don’t have a great relationship yet – but we will be offering reciprocity with Luminary – can you rewrite?

3. We offer several social activities that keep you healthy and make you feel right at home.

Your business is important. But there’s more to life than just work.

We understand this perfectly at HAYVN, which is why we are pleased to offer lots of activities that will make our facility become your “third place.”

For example, we have a members-only fitness center that offers fitness classes and health-focused nutritionists. We also have special relationships with healthy food and drink vendors—like Carolyn’s Absolutely Fabulous catering company. We plan to have food trucks and other community vendors on-premises, so no matter what kind of palette you have, you’ll be able to find something that’s especially tasty.

HAYVN offers a campus-like feel—complete with an outdoor dining/hangout area, afternoon tea time, and even a fire pit.

Getting started is easy, too. We have an on-boarding program that will make it simple for you to become part of our community and start building relationships with fellow HAYVN members on Day 1.
