According to a LinkedIn Workforce Report, Asheville, with a population of under 100,000, is one of the nation’s top-10 fastest growing tech hubs, ranking alongside heavy hitters like Seattle and Austin. And a report from Zillow and Yelp noted Asheville is one of the top-10 cities in the country for digital nomads. With its bold entrepreneurial spirit, enviable location in the Appalachian Mountains, and robust dining, craft beer and music scene, Asheville is a perfect setting for THRIVE | Coworking, which offers flexible work solutions that include community and purpose for solo workers, and a dynamic hub for employees of large and small enterprises.
“THRIVE | Asheville, with both dedicated and shared workspace, is designed for professionals looking to work close to home.

THRIVE also works directly with enterprises large and small to create hybrid work locations with all the amenities, convenience and culture employees want.
THRIVE | Asheville features free bottomless coffee/tea and snacks, as well as monthly breakfasts, lunches and happy hours, plus an ongoing roster of events and activities, from hikes to hang gliding.

The company plans to drive local business by partnering with neighborhood retailers who will offer discounts on dining and services to coworking members, as well as anyone who participates in THRIVE | Initiative, the company’s 501(c)(3) micro-donation platform. The THRIVE | Initiative app rounds up credit or debit card purchases to the nearest dollar amount and lets users donate the difference directly to a locally participating charity. It is expected to be available this year.

Global private-equity and real estate asset-management group 33 Degrees invested to open 500 THRIVE locations throughout the United States and Canada, enabling THRIVE to now serve enterprises struggling with their hybrid model and to acquire coworking operators who wish to exit or scale with THRIVE.
