Chichester Coworking Space Expanding after just 1 year in business
Published 18:05 on 4 Mar 2020
Following a successful first year in business and growth of
membership to over 200, Central Chichester coworking space Rume2 is expanding
with the opening of a new space at Sussex House.
With over 17,000 self-employed in the Chichester area founders
Lucy Legg-Willis and Rosie Freshwater opened Rume2 at the end of January 2019 with
a clear conviction there was a need for an inspiring, contemporary space for
local freelancers and small businesses to work from. Fast forward just 12
months and this conviction has been proven, as on the 1st March they
cut the ribbon to a new suite at their central location of Sussex House, in
doing so over doubling the space for coworking they can provide their members.
With 6 new private offices and another 25 coworking hot
desks Rume2 is now able to offer an even wider choice for those wanting an exciting,
modern and friendly place to work.
Over the last 12 months Rosie and Lucy have seen their membership
grow from zero to over 200.
We always knew Chichester deserved a space that supported
its vibrant entrepreneurial business community, but even we have been
pleasantly surprised but how rapidly we have grown and how quickly we have been
able to expand due to demand.

Rume2 offers not only coworking with superfast wifi,
unlimited fresh coffee and healthy refreshments, it also offers an extensive
program of talks and workshops to support their members in business skills and
encourage personal and creative growth.
Over our first year we have offered a wide range of
workshops to members on a plethora of topics from business skills such as
finance and marketing, to wellness advice and creative workshops. We encourage
our members to work, talk and grow together and these sessions allow them to
step away from the day to day, meet others and open up their minds to new
skills and opportunities.
As a result we have seen many of our members start working
together or for each others clients which is a delight to see and affirmation
we are really adding to the local business economy by being here.

Rume2 has a firm ethos to support local and as with their
first fit out, the new space has used only local tradesmen and suppliers to
carry out the works. All new members will also benefit from the wide range of
local discounts offered to encourage them to support local businesses on their
way to and from work and at lunchtimes.
Our new office space at Rume2 is brilliant! Having a
place to do my best work in the middle of Chichester that is modern and bright
with what must be the fastest internet connection in the town is a dream come
Our brand new dedicated office is beautiful, with custom
made furniture and large windows it’s a lovely space to work in. I
can shut the door and focus on complex tasks and do my calls but also change
things up a bit and work in the co-working space. I’m a big fan of the standing
desks with clever lamps that can also charge my phone wirelessly.
We’ve already grown our business significantly by being a
part of the community here. Rume2 is exactly what Chichester needed. Already
it’s attracting talented freelancers and exciting start-ups but also providing
an inspirational space for larger organisations to have meetings away from
their usual place of work.
