The City of Oakley is now accepting applications for the Oakley Entrepreneur Center that is just being completed in downtown Oakley. The Entrepreneur Center is located in the second floor of the building located at 3330 Main Street, across from Civic Center Plaza.

The City of Oakley has a high percentage of home-based business entrepreneurs. As these home-based businesses grow, there is typically a need for them to find suitable office space outside of the home. The Entrepreneur Center is being established to meet the needs and challenges of Oakley’s Entrepreneurs.

The fully-furnished space will be able to accommodate 15-20 business, and will include:

  • 2,200 square feet of space
  • Individual offices
  • Large & small conference rooms
  • Co-working space

According to the City, it is anticipated that rent for the individual offices will be $350 per month and $250 per month for the co-working space. Rent payments will include all utilities, access to the wireless network and use of a common printer. Tenants will be expected to provide their own laptops and cellular phones.

In addition to the use of the facilities, tenants in the Entrepreneur Center would benefit from small business programs being offered by Oakley’s Economic Development program, including business plan training programs, business workshops, coaching and networking activities.

Interested tenants can visit the Economic Development page of the City of Oakley’s website – www.ci.oakley.ca.us to access applications and other documents. In addition, prospective tenants will be able to tour the space individually or at an upcoming open house.

“We are excited about the Centers opening and look forward to better serving Oakley’s small business and entrepreneur community,” said Dalman.
