Nest:Space™ Events & Why They’re Important for Central Nebraska’s Growth

Company Updates

When it comes to business & entrepreneurship, a huge benefit of attending local events is to network and learn from others in different industries! We not only grow our network, but we also expose ourselves to fields we're not yet familiar with.

Nest:Space™ has built out three months of ongoing event programming, hosting several free monthly events for the public. These events include networking, group mentorship, rapid prototyping sessions, and more! We believe we must have business-related events and foster more professional connections in Central Nebraska & beyond, to thrive!

Our mission at Nest:Space™ in Downtown Kearney is to bring together business people of all ages and backgrounds, encourage networking, and add the potential for collaboration & between our event attendees!

The city of Kearney (and Central Nebraska) is continuously growing in the entrepreneurial & professionalism circles, and we are excited to be seen as a catalyst for more business creation & innovation locally.

Nest:Space’s Home is Rich in History

Company Updates

As years and years of dust (109, to be exact) fall from the floor joists and coat our faces, heads, and shoulders, we can't help but wonder, “What are we getting ourselves into?” We know our hard work on this basement remodel will be worth it; it already has been.

Co-Founder, Shawna Meyer, covered in years of dust during the basement remodel!

When we think about when our construction improvements on this building began, less than three years ago, it seems like such a long time, but this building has MUCH more history than ours.

Brick-by-brick, this building was built by hand in 1913; We can only imagine the painstaking effort required to create this structure. The workers and their callused hands most likely would have been focusing on getting the job done, not thinking about the possible future for this building & its tenants! A century later, a few coworking space owners would think about these builders and thank them for the building they created.

Historically, a hard-working spirit has always been in this building. Charles and Kosta (Gust) were Greek immigrant brothers who casually came through Kearney on vacation & found this city welcoming and the citizens friendly. They observed that no one had a business with homemade candy and ice cream. They saw Kearney and this building as a place of opportunity, so in 1917 they started their shop here at 2224 Central Avenue. Their candy and Ice Cream Parlor called The Emporia Candy Kitchen was opened and ran for 30 years, followed by many other long-running businesses.

What started as a handmade tile retailer, then Emporia Candy Kitchen, many restaurants, S&H Green Stamps, Copycat printing, Dusty Records, a yarn store, a vacuum store, and a dog groomer is now Nest:Space™, a premier coworking space!

Today, this building still houses hard-working individuals and businesses striving to be their best. Our Nest:Space™ community of professionals from all industries are making their unique print on this building and our city!

Please follow along as we create a juxtaposition of our historically rich building with an updated look & function. As we continue to improve our space, we'll continue to post updates. Next up…basement remodel!

Monitors on standing work desks

Company Updates

We've installed a monitor on the standing work desk out in the hot desk zone! We personally love to stand to work, but some people don't. There's no wrong way to be productive AF! 🙂

If this monitor gets used on a weekly basis, we will install more monitors, if it doesn't, we won't. 🙂

Sound Absorbing Micro-Office Upgrades

Company Updates
It was recently brought to our attention that some of our micro offices aren’t very sound proof, so we’re working to fix that!
Here’s what we’re doing:
  1. We’ll be installing some acoustic sound panels on the walls in the micro offices, they look like this:
  2. We’ll be putting spray foam at the top of the micro office walls to make sure all of the gaps have been filled between the walls and the ceiling, so that sound doesn’t bounce from room to room via the ceiling gap.
These micro office sound absorbing upgrades will start to happen within the next week. We’ll keep you updated on the progress, as we have more info. In the meantime, please go ahead and use headphones anytime that you need to listen to sounds from your computer or mobile device! Everyone appreciates this sort of courtesy, especially your coworkers! 🙂
Thanks again.
