“Levi, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Nicole Vasquez and I came together to bring Second Shift to life because we both see community building as THE path for productive and successful businesses. Nicole was two years into building and running The Shift, her first coworking space, all herself in the Uptown neighborhood. During that time, she and I met and she got to know my passion for entrepreneurship and bringing people together while I got to know her deftness for running a small business.
In March of 2016, after we had collaborated on multiple events and small endeavors, Nicole came back from a trip touring European coworking spaces and asked me if I wanted to start a new space with her in Logan Square. It didn’t take long for me to see the possibilities so we got to work and almost exactly one year later we opened the doors to Second Shift. As of November 2017, we are now eight months into operations and are at 65 coworking members and growing.”
