Owning a business and finding childcare can seem like an insurmountable task, but one local women’s non profit is attempting to make the process a lot easier right here in Green Lake.  The Women’s Business Incubator, a Seattle 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to helping women succeed in business, is off to a strong start with their crowdfunding campaign to support the opening of the first Seattle coworking space with an onsite preschool in February 2017.  They have partnered with St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Green Lake to establish the unique space.

“Women in business face significant challenges balancing work and family,” says Board President Eva Monsen. “We are so excited to take the first step with space for coworking parents and onsite, flexible, drop-in preschool. We hope to grow quickly and serve as many women in business, freelancers, and entrepreneurs as we can.”

Currently, the campaign is just over the $2,000 mark with the goal being $10,000 in order to hire staff and cover other startup costs. The campaign page can be found at  http://bit.ly/wbilaunch. But hurry, you only have until January 15 the end of February.
