Gone are the days of working in a traditional office setting, where cubicles separate colleagues and the only social interactions occur around the water
cooler. The rise in coworking spaces have left more people yearning for work environments that are collaborative, inspiring, and stimulating. Coworking
has witnessed a significant resurgence over the past few years with the increase of the contingent workers – professionals who work independently as

Individuals have become more flexible and creative with their professions. They are starting businesses and creating jobs for themselves. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates
that by 2020, about 65 million Americans will be freelancers or independent contractors, making up about 40% of the workforce. Concurrently, workspaces
are sprouting around the country in order to accommodate the growing number of nomadic workers.

“As the American workforce trends toward independent contracting, freelance, and temping, coworking spaces and the collaborative, connective environments
they create become more and more important – from both a social and professional standpoint,” said Joe Biggs, one of eight founders of Invictus Office
Center. “No longer the exception, coworking spaces will be the rule.”

“Coworking spaces are melting pots of creativity,” added Biggs. “They generate a level of synergy that results from the proximity and collaboration of
like-minded people. New relationships are developed. Ideas are challenged. Problems are solved.”

Today, coworking comes with benefits beyond just wifi and free coffee. Professional, personal, and social gains come as added bonuses that are more advantageous
than working in a coffee shop or at home. These environments are not only stimulating, inspiring, and fun, but also lead to new business development
and collaborations, as well as increased levels of productivity and income as a result of being part of an expanding business network.

“What sets us apart from other coworking spaces is that Invictus was created for the community. We strongly believe in Durham and all eight founders are
contributing members,” said Biggs, “We are businessmen, educators, and fathers and we launch Invictus Office Center to foster the entrepreneurship
talent already growing in Durham. Durham is full of talented freelancers, entrepreneurs, and visionaries and Invictus will be their launch pad.”

Located at 601 Fayetteville Street in Durham, Invictus Office Center’s Grand Opening is on Tuesday, June 30th at 5:30pm, sponsored by the Durham
Chamber of Commerce and catered by Bull City Pitt Masters.
