A coworking community and social club for women is being planned for Little Rock’s SOMA District with plans to open in September.
The project is called The Nest, founded by Little Rock entrepreneurs and CEOs Erin Hohnbaum and Natalie Ghidotti. Hohnbaum is founder and chief executive officer of E. Leigh’s Contemporary Boutiques and co-founder of PowHer Players women’s community. Ghidotti, APR, is founder and chief executive officer of Ghidotti, a public relations and content marketing agency.
According to a press release, The Nest will include “beautifully curated spaces to work and connect with other like-minded women in the community” and feature weekly and monthly programming just for women.
“After a year of working from home, we realized that women in Central Arkansas need a space not only to work, but to network and learn from each other,” Holnbaum said. “We believe that The Nest will do just that. Whether you’re connecting over coffee or closing your next big deal, we believe The Nest will inspire your best work and play. This will be a space for the women in our community to invest in themselves, and build connections with other female leaders, entrepreneurs, creatives and all-around hustlers.”
Ghidotti said she hopes the space will celebrate and strengthen the collaborative spirit already felt among Little Rock’s women leaders.
“The Nest will capture the collaborative spirit of our community’s female leaders by serving and hosting women in an authentic environment for empowered thought, inclusion and connection,” she said.
The Nest is located at 112 West Daisy Bates in the SOMA District, which is centered around South Main Street. It will open in late September with key coworking spaces, including a conference room that can be rented by members, kitchen and outdoor hideaway. Weekly and monthly programming will focus on a variety of topics and offerings that “enhance women’s lives and allow them to learn, connect and grow with fellow Nest members,” according to the release.
Membership tiers include The Executive, The Boss and The Side Hustle. Along with the monthly membership tiers, day passes will be available. More information can be found at TheNestLR.com.
