There's another new co-working space opening in the Baltimore area, but this one is pitched to parents.
Instead of ping pong or fancy drinks, the perk offered at the Cube, a small office at 6905 York Road in Stoneleigh, will be a supervised play area, where members can leave their children while they retreat to work at one of the desks.
Standard membership packages range from $125 to $365 a month, for access to the work room, which includes WiFi, printing, scanning and a mailbox.
"I wanted to create that space where moms or dads could bring their children to work and everyone would be okay and not be distracted," said co-founder Tammira Lucas, 29, who also helped start Moms as Entrepreneurs, which runs entrepreneurship training programs.
Lucas said she's invested about $25,000, including a $10,000 Kiva loan, in the Cube concept, which is a response to high childcare costs and increasing numbers of people working from home.
