More good news for Phoenix area startups.
Founders of the Club E networking group announced this week plans to open four more “business incubators” with commercial real-estate developer Green Street Properties.
In late August, Club E co-founder Peter Burns said the organization’s executives had struck a deal with Green Street to open its first such location in the Shoppes at Val Vista retail center in Gilbert.
The group, which has more than 10 chapters in Arizona, Texas, California and other states, has since developed plans with Green Street to open additional facilities in Goodyear, Chandler, Las Vegas and Dallas.
Club E, which started as Club Entrepreneur in early 2007, is calling the facilities eFactories. Small-business owners who rent space at the facilities will have access to high-speed Internet, standard office equipment and other amenities.
Burns said the first eFactory in Gilbert is about 90 days from opening. Read more about that facility here.
Club E, which is incorporated in Texas but has its primary operations in Phoenix, is in the process of moving into its new headquarters in an office building at the Loop 101 and Cave Creek Road. The organization plans to operate a test incubator at that site. See a tour of the facility in the video to the left. [From Entrepreneurs group, developer to open five incubators]
