( ENSPIRE Business ) A Black Female Co-Working Space Launches to Serve Little River Community in Miami
Thynk Global, an innovative co-working space designed by and for minority women, has opened its first location in Miami’s burgeoning Little River district Oddly, the launch occurred in line with the COVID-19 pandemic. Founded by Maghan Morin and Jeanine Suah, Thynk Global invites minority women and their allies, both male and female entrepreneurs of all ethnicities, to network, get organized, collaborate, and grow their business, all for a fraction of the cost of most coworking spaces. Currently, they are offering free space to displaced workers for two months. This will continue even after we are out of quarantine.
In addition to empowering young entrepreneurs, founders Morin and Suah hope to combat gentrification in the neighborhoods in which they open their coworking spaces. Through Thynk Global, they aim to help these communities by creating high-quality hubs that promote socio-economic inclusion. By offering monthly memberships as low as $87, they provide affordable options to young entrepreneurs and up-and-coming professionals.
With Thynk Global, Morin and Suah set out to create a welcoming space where makers, creators, and innovators can “thynk” beyond limits and produce their best work, and they’ve done just that. The 3,000-square-foot warehouse, featuring sleek modern furniture and pops of color throughout, sparks creativity immediately upon entering. The space has been designed with their members’ (who are aptly named “thynkers”) needs in mind, packed with amenities including an in-house kitchen, concierge service, a meeting room, mail delivery service, an outdoor garden and more. To further support its thynkers, Thynk Global is the first coworking space in Miami to feature a Pop-Up Retail Shop to showcase thynker’s products and brands, which the public is invited to shop from.
However, at Thynk Global, thynkers get more than just space; they inherit new professional connections and friends who challenge them to do better and be better. Thynk Global also hosts free, year-round workshops led by experts for thynkers, including classes on financial literacy, business marketing, branding, and more. Additionally, community-building events like Painting with a Twist, allow thynkers to further build interpersonal relationships.
Inviting minority women and their allies of all ethnicities, to network, get organized, collaborate, and grow their business is a great push to getting small businesses and others back to business.
