Project Description

 

Oak + Pine offers an online community and physical co-working space for women in Honolulu, HI. If you're interested in becoming a member, you can join us for as little as $35/month. See our rewards and find the membership that fits what you need today.

 

Our Mission

Oak + Pine's mission is to create opportunities for female entrepreneurs designing life on their own terms. 

Now that we've grown 100 Oak + Pine Society Members, its time to find a home for our community.

Gather Coworking is a space in Hawaii Kai where female entrepreneurs and remote workers come together to work in a contemporary facility, access premiere resources such as educational workshops and programming, and co-create a modern and equal business landscape where work/life harmony is obtainable.

 

OUR CHALLENGE

The business world is not designed for modern-day women. This outdated system is restricting the deliberate change we need to support women in business. The lack of diversity in decision making positions forced close to 1 million women in the U.S. to leave the workforce during the pandemic.

OUR SOLUTION

Your one-stop community to grow and scale a meaningful life and business.

Gather Coworking creates new opportunities for women by: 

  1. Creating a sanctuary where women can work while feeling inspired and supported.
  2. Facilitating regular programming to enhance skill sets that’ll accelerate starting a business, strengthen soft skills like negotiating, and grow into leadership roles to conduct change.
  3. Providing a community of solution focused women who are ambitious, empathetic, and supportive.

 

 

It's time to gather and grow with like-minded women.

Gather is a space where you're unapologetic about your big dreams. You'll unite all aspects of your life by:

  • connecting with a community that strives for positive impact,
  • taking care of your well-being,
  • collaborate to find creative solutions both personally and professionally, all while
  • creating an abundant life for yourself and inner circle.

Life is full of transitions, discovery, and growth. We've created a safe space where you'll feel supported, understood, and empowered.

 

THE SPACE

The space is located on the ground floor of the Hawaii Kai Executive Plaza. Local banks, eateries, and coffee shops are all within walking distance from Gather. And with nearby hikes and ocean activities, you’ll experience group self-care activities with other like-minded entrepreneurs both indoors and out. 

The space is 1,300 sq/ft, including private offices, dedicated desks, a conference room, a comfortable coworking lounge area, and spacious event space. Our lounge area is used for regular accountability meetings, book clubs, and intentional coworking discussions. 

The conference room walls are designed with retractable folding glass walls making it flexible to accommodate various events like morning group yoga flows, guided meditation, and regular panel discussions. 

Our dedicated desks and private offices include mail and cleaning services. And with a private entrance and a noise-dampening design, you’ll feel like the CEO you truly are.

About Our Founder, Michelle.

I’m a first-generation American who experienced the legacy of empowered women. My Grandma Betty (dad’s side), a single mother of five, and my mom both uprooted the Philippines to explore a better life in Hawaii as entrepreneurs. Watching my family pursue freedom, they’ve set the tone for the journey I’m on -- to empower myself and others to design a life full of commitment, impact, and community.

 

Why Crowdfunding?

Community is the heart and soul of Oak + Pine. Our members are the secret to success. This is why crowdfunding is so crucial as we embark on this new chapter. Crowdfunding allows us to remain the decision-makers of our growing community.
