A new women’s networking and workspace is opening in downtown Little Rock’s SOMA district.
The Nest is described as a “coworking community and social club designed by women for women” and will open in September.
Founded by Erin Hohnbaum and Natalie Ghidotti, The Nest will include curated spaces to work and connect with other like-minded women in the community and it will feature weekly and monthly programming just for women.
“After a year of working from home, we realized that women in central Arkansas need a space not only to work, but to network and learn from each other,” said Hohnbaum, founder and chief executive officer of E. Leigh’s Contemporary Boutiques and co-founder of PowHer Players women’s community. “We believe that The Nest will do just that. Whether you’re connecting over coffee or closing your next big deal, we believe The Nest will inspire your best work and play. This will be a space for the women in our community to invest in themselves, and build connections with other female leaders, entrepreneurs, creatives and all-around hustlers.”
“The Nest will capture the collaborative spirit of our community’s female leaders by serving and hosting women in an authentic environment for empowered thought, inclusion and connection,” said Ghidotti, founder and chief executive officer of Ghidotti, a public relations and content marketing agency. “Erin and I, along with our founding members, will create a community where the phrase ‘women supporting women’ isn’t just a catch phrase; it’s a way of life. Our vision is that The Nest will be your bridge between work and home that inspires you to conquer your day, week and year.”
The Nest, located at 112 W. Daisy L. Gatson Bates in the SOMA District, will open in late September with key coworking spaces, including a conference room that can be rented by members, kitchen and outdoor hideaway. Weekly and monthly programming will focus on a variety of topics and offerings that enhance women’s lives and allow them to learn, connect and grow with fellow Nest members.
Membership tiers include The Executive, The Boss and The Side Hustle. Along with the monthly membership tiers, day passes will be available.
