MURRIETA —As professional coworking spaces have become recognized throughout the world, National Coworking Day will be observed Aug. 9, 2014 in the U.S. But why limit it to one day?

Coworking Connection in Murrieta—the only such space in the valley—is hosting Coworking Week from Aug. 4-8. Entrepreneurs, startups and business owners throughout the region are invited to a week of free interactive information, workshops and training.

"Last year we had such great success spotlighting Coworking Week within our facility that we have decided to continue celebrating it for one week, annually," said Dione Moser, founder and president of Coworking Connection.

The theme of this year’s event, which will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily, is "Be Amazing." Speakers will be presenting each day, and there are various activities, games, raffles, prizes and refreshments planned.

Additionally, the festivities are a chance to come and learn what coworking is all about. Coworking Connection offers a professional, collective environment for small business owners, entrepreneurs and startups to work and meet without having to use their homes or public places, such as coffee shops.

"It provides a collaborative community in which to network, and a hub for businesses of all sizes in which to flourish," Moser said.

Coworking Week will also include time for entrepreneurs and inventors to pitch their product in a competitive setting similar to "Shark Tank." The winner will take Advertisement

home a business startup kit valued at more than $5,000.

"While investments might not take place on the spot like the ‘Shark Tank’ TV show, we certainly get the conversations started with investors and entrepreneurs," Moser said. "The Murrieta and Temecula Valley is beginning to attract the attention of investors with access to capital, business friendly governance and a high quality workforce."

Those wishing to pitch their ideas for inclusion in the shark tank session, which will take place on Friday, Aug. 8, are encouraged to visit

On the Friday prior to the week-long event, a networking event with the City of Murrieta is scheduled.

"The City of Murrieta believes that the Murrieta Coworking Connection is critical for the growth of entrepreneurship in the Murrieta region and meets the city’s economic development goals," said Bruce Coleman, director of economic development for the City of Murrieta.
