Since the advent of the hybrid workplace, the home office movement has taken hold and changed the way that many contractors, corporate workers, entrepreneurs, and small business owners get work done. While working remotely certainly has its benefits, many professionals are beginning to find that spending 40 hours or more a week in a home office isn't the best choice. According to the INAA, working remotely can blur the line between professional working environments and a person's personal life.
As it turns out, having a dedicated, safe space to work privately or collaborate with others can boost efficiency and increase morale. Working in an office environment with readily-available resources like printers and meeting rooms makes accomplishing tasks and making progress much more manageable. For business owners and startups, the prospect of being unproductive at home just won't cut it.
That's where The Runway's co-working space comes into play.
A new take on the modern-day office, co-working spaces give individuals, entrepreneurs, startups, and business owners access to private desks, office resources, inclusive amenities, and exclusive perks. Imagine a purpose-built space filled with hardworking professionals, all employed by different organizations with different goals and tasks. The building has many different rooms, from communal areas with shared workspaces to large, private offices with frosted glass. Here, workers from every background can network with like-minded colleagues while having a dedicated place to work and collaborate.
From exciting startups owners working seven days a week to individuals needing a quiet place to do research, co-working office spaces offer help provide:

If you're like many of our clients at The Runway, you're probably wondering, "Why should I choose a co-working space in Savannah, SC, near me instead of a traditional office space?"
The truth is co-working spaces with flexible workplace options have drastically changed the way professionals work. Over the last few years, more self-employed business owners and companies have taken advantage of the savings and convenience co-working spaces offer. In the past, the only options on the table were limited by nature, at rates that seemed ridiculous, even for major companies.
On the other hand, co-working spaces offer professionals the chance to move right away to a fully-functioning, comfortable workspace in a business-centric part of town. Unlike traditional office space rentals, The Runway provides you with everything you need to be successful and grow your business, whether you're a sole proprietor or have several employees.
With a properly equipped co-working space, you can focus on accomplishing your goals and finishing your day-to-day tasks without the headaches of moving into and maintaining an expensive office. Co-working spaces offered by The Runway provide:
On the other hand, traditional office spaces often feature:
With the growing popularity of office rooms for rent in Savannah, SC, many types of businesses and people are inhabiting these spaces, from popular companies to self-starters and everyone in between. Here is a quick glance at some of the most common professionals using The Runway's co-working office space.
Yes, you read that correctly. Remote work is often associated with Zoom calls and home offices, but remote employees can benefit greatly from co-working offices. Most remotely-employed workers enjoy having more freedom but want to use it responsibly. They choose co-working spaces because, unlike working from home, they benefit from socialization, structure, and the ability to brainstorm with others.
As is the case with remote workers, freelancing doesn't inherently mean you have a dedicated workspace or home office. Since having a home office isn't always a guarantee, we find that many freelancers flourish at The Runway. Even freelancers who have home offices often prefer to work in a more structured environment to reduce distractions and downtime. For hardworking freelancers, co-working spaces present an opportunity for more productivity and career progress. When you add access to client meeting rooms, printers, scanners, free Wi-Fi, and even a business mailing address, co-working offices are often no-brainers for freelancers.
Especially in the early stages of growth, entrepreneurs need a dedicated, productive space to grow their business and determine the next steps to success. Depending on the industry, entrepreneurial work can quickly clutter your personal space, both physically at home and mentally, in your head. That's often the first reason why entrepreneurs flock to co-working spaces â they're away from home, where they're more inclined to relax and be unproductive. Whether you're looking for a private office or simply a desk where you can work away from home, The Runway is the solution you need.
A co-working space for startups in Savannah, SC, is a great idea because it provides a central location for full-time work, office meetings, and more. Startups are often defined by a team's ability to come together, brainstorm, produce a product, and fill a need. With The Runway's co-working office for startups, you can do exactly that.
Plus, having a co-working office space for a startup team saves money. If you've ever had the chance to grow a company from the ground up, you know first-hand how important budgets are for your business. When you rent from The Runway, you won't have to worry about expenses like management fees, insurance, power, internet, reinstatement fees, and other overhead costs.
If you own or manage a small to mid-size business, you know how expensive office space is in Savannah. As is the case with startups, many businesses use The Runway's private meeting rooms and offices to conduct business at a fraction of the cost of a traditional office. Plus, they use the space to connect with other businesses, professionals, and freelancers who often become valuable resources. As an added bonus, co-working spaces like those at The Runway have been shown to boost morale and provide a sense of camaraderie, collaboration, and community.
Co-working and shared workspaces from The Runway are cost-effective, convenient, and full of value for hardworking people looking to get ahead. Though co-working offices have grown in popularity, with approximately 24,000 locations globally, they're still a mystery to many. If you still have questions, we invite you to contact our office today to learn more about The Runway. Until we speak, here are just a few of the most frequently asked questions we encounter.
Q. Do co-working spaces actually work? My friend uses a desk from The Runway and swears by it, but I'm not convinced.
A. The short answer to this question is a resounding "Yes!" Thousands of people use co-working offices as a reliable way to stay productive and professional. In fact, research from Harvard Business Review states that surveyed workers benefit from more motivation, higher productivity, and more valuable social interactions.

A. The Runway is a co-working office space and community that offers clients a modern, purpose-built place to work and succeed. Depending on their needs, members enjoy many options and perks, including:

There’s an invasive hornet on the prowl in Georgia, and South Carolina officials are urging beekeepers to look out for them here, too.
A yellow-legged hornet was confirmed in Savannah earlier this month by the federal Department of Agriculture. The Georgia sighting is the first time the insect — which can have a devastating impact on bees — has been found in the United States.
The species, native to Southeast Asia, is no more harmful to humans than other hornets and has not been detected in South Carolina.
A regulatory sector of Clemson University tasked with protecting the state’s beekeeping industry will begin monitoring Lowcountry locations through an elaborate trapping system.
The program’s coordinator Brad Carvin is urging the state’s beekeepers and the public to stay vigilant, noting that both groups are vital in minimizing potential impacts from the invasive pest.
“That’s why we are asking for public assistance with monitoring for and reporting unusual hornet activity, especially around honeybee hives,” Cavin said.
Yellow-legged hornets can be identified by their yellow legs (hence the name), but their body and head coloration can vary. Adult hornets are a little less than an inch long.
They build egg-shaped paper nests above ground and are often in trees, Clemson said. The nests can be large and house an average of 6,000 workers.
This species is often confused with a number of other native pests, like the cicada killer wasp, paper wasps, queen yellow jackets and robber flies, among other insects.
“The yellow-legged hornet is a predatory insect that has been reported to attack western honeybee colonies and has become a serious pest of beekeeping operations where it has been introduced,” said Ben Powell, who directs Clemson Cooperative Extension’s Apiary and Pollinator program.
Establishment of the pest in the United States would pose a significant threat to the already embattled beekeeping enterprises here, Powell said.
They could threaten honey production and native pollinators.
People who believe they have found a yellow-legged hornet are urged to report their finding online at www.clemson.edu/public/regulatory/plant-industry/invasive/ylh.html. Clemson will work with federal officials to confirm suspected specimens and respond to active hornet colonies they locate.

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Savannah Christian’s David Bucey, the reigning Region 3-3A Athlete of the Year, is a true do-it-all athlete for the Raiders.
During his junior season, Bucey accounted for 100 tackles, five interceptions, and four sacks on defense. On the offensive side of the football, he hauled in over 700 yards receiving with seven touchdowns, while also being a key contributor on special teams.
“With David, it’s hard to get him off the field. He gets mad if I try to give him a break on special teams. I love everything about his mentality. It’s refreshing to have a kid who loves football,” said Savannah Christian head coach Baker Woodward.
Following his standout junior campaign, Bucey racked up numerous Division One offers, but none stemmed from the SEC. That all changed after recently attending a camp at South Carolina.
Bucey shined at the camp and blew away Gamecocks head coach Shane Beamer.
“I am glad these (SEC) coaches got to see firsthand what we have been trying to tell them about David,” Woodward said.
Bucey was offered a scholarship shortly after the camp and pulled the trigger on his commitment to Beamer and South Carolina just days following the offer.
“I got what I was praying for and got what I have wanted. I was all in,” Bucey said.

CLEMSON, S.C. — After yellow-legged hornets were found in Savannah, officials at Clemson University wants beekeepers and the general public to be on the lookout for the invasive species. While this species of hornet is no more harmful to humans than other hornets, the yellow-legged hornet can be devastating to managed and wild bee populations.
On August 9, the US Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) confirmed the University of Georgia's identification of a found insect as a yellow-legged hornet (Vespa velutina). Because of its coloring, the yellow-legged hornet is often confused with cicada killer wasps, bald-faced hornet, paper wasps, queen yellowjackets, wood wasps and robber flies, but is distinguished from these other stinging insects by its larger size.
Yellow-legged hornet queens measure about 1.2 inches long, workers about 0.8 inches. The hornets have a dark head, mostly dark thorax, and yellow-tipped legs. They build large egg-shaped paper nests above ground, often in trees, and can house an average of 6,000 workers.
This particular hornet is native to Southeast Asia and has established itself throughout most of Europe and areas of the Middle East and Asia.
Brad Cavin, program director of Clemson University's Department of Plant Industry Apiary Inspection Program, urges beekeepers and the public to stay vigilant.
“While we are spearheading a robust trapping protocol in the South Carolina Lowcountry, beekeepers, and the public both play an important role in our efforts to minimize any potential impact from this invasive pest. That’s why we are asking for public assistance with monitoring for and reporting unusual hornet activity, especially around honeybee hives,” said Cavin.
People who suspect they have found a yellow-legged hornet are urged to report their findings to www.clemson.edu/public/regulatory/plant-industry/invasive/ylh.html.
Clemson will work with federal officials to confirm suspected specimens and respond to active hornet colonies if they are located.

The "weak" storm could form between east Florida and the Carolinas before possibly becoming a large issue for North Carolina.SAVANNAH, GA — The southeast region could battle rain and wind this week as a low-pressure storm system could form anywhere from eastern Florida to Georgia and the Carolinas, weather officials predicted Wednesday.As of early Wednesday, the weak storm was far off shore into the Atlantic, and could have little impact to Savannah, said Michael Stroz, meteorologist with the National Weather ...
SAVANNAH, GA — The southeast region could battle rain and wind this week as a low-pressure storm system could form anywhere from eastern Florida to Georgia and the Carolinas, weather officials predicted Wednesday.
As of early Wednesday, the weak storm was far off shore into the Atlantic, and could have little impact to Savannah, said Michael Stroz, meteorologist with the National Weather Service's office in Charleston, South Carolina.
The storm system is normal, as opposed to tropical, Stroz told Patch. While portions of the Georgia and South Carolina coasts could be impacted by the system, North Carolina significantly remained an area of worry, he said.
Areas near the coastline are at the highest risk of impact, rather than inland counties.
"It’s possible Savannah may not get any rainfall at all," he said. " ... The concern still seems to be more for North Carolina."
Rain could enter Charleston, as well, though the chance is not high.
Showers and thunderstorms are forecast for the Savannah area Wednesday night through Saturday night, however, Stroz these rains are due to a sitting trough and are unrelated to the low storm system.
If any portion of the South Carolina or Georgia coasts are affected by the system, Stroz said winds should arrive along beaches late Thursday and usher in rainfall Friday into Friday night before lingering winds sit Saturday.
Beaches could see larger waves and rip currents, and coastal flooding could be problematic. If there is flooding in the roadway, Stroz said to "turn around, don't drown." He urged residents to listen to their local officials.
The National Weather Channel reported Wednesday that the western north-Atlantic's Gulf Stream could cause the low-pressure system to conjure additional storms.
"If this low can remain over the warm Gulf Stream long enough, it could sprout enough thunderstorms to warm it sufficiently to be considered a subtropical depression or storm," the weather channel said.
"These are a mix of lows associated with fronts, but also have some qualities of tropical storms. The National Hurricane Center issues advisories for these subtropical systems as they do for tropical depressions and storms."
Like the weather service, the Weather Channel predicted the storm could move north toward the Carolinas.
"The difference between the low and higher pressure near New England will lead to gusty winds, particularly at the beaches, from northeast Florida to at least the mid-Atlantic states from Friday into the weekend. These winds could also whip up some high surf and rip currents. Keep this in mind if you have beach plans," the Weather Channel said.
The Weather Channel said "the next named storms in the Atlantic hurricane season will be named 'Ophelia,' then 'Philippe.'"
