Guild of Palm Beach

 

This was the website of Nick Cappiello created to promote his vision of providing a co-working environment that would bring a critical mass of solo professionals into a centralized location. He was looking for professionals who had shared values and were interested in the synergy that can happen from working with like-minded talented people in the same space although they would be still working independently. It was an ambitious concept.

The site itself was engaging with its red graphics, clean layout, and visionary concept. However sometime in 2016 the site's domain expired. I happened to discover it was available and decided to purchase it with the goal of recreating some of its original content.

I did not want someone else to purchase the domain and re-purpose the site for something that had nothing in common with the original TheGuildofPalmBeach.com/ website. Perhaps some one who comes across this website now will be motivated toc take the concept of co-working to anothr level.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PAGE CONTAINS SELECTIVE ARCHIVED CONTENT FROM THE ORIGINAL SITE.

Since the site will not be exactly as you remember it, please be indulgent.

 

Welcome

The Guild of Palm Beach is located in beautiful North Palm Beach, just two miles from the crystal blue water of South Florida close to Interstate 95 and Florida’s Turnpike. The centralized location will give individuals quick access to a multitude of cultural, civic and recreational venues, including but not limited to the North County Court House, Palm Beach State College, North County Library, Downtown at the Gardens, Legacy Place, and the Gardens Mall.

Our design capabilities coupled with our rigorous quality control inspections throughout the building process, ensures that all company's under the guilds membership roster exceeds the standards of conventional advertising and mixed media firms. ​Compared to our competition, The Guild builds fewer online and conversational company's but our clients are treated with the personal attention they deserve.

The result: clients that are both thrilled with the product and thoroughly satisfied with the process.

 

The Coworking Movement Defined

Coworking is a movement to create cafe-like community/collaboration spaces for entrepreneurs, innovators, developers, writers and others.

The movement began on the West Coast in 2005. Young entrepreneurs and independents, in the San Francisco Bay area, who felt isolated from the outside world in their home offices banded together to operate a shared workspace. Today, coworking has spread from the West Coast to the East Coast, and spaces for independent workers have developed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, DE Moines, Iowa, Akron, Ohio and  North Palm Beach, Florida.

When independents form a critical mass they utilize shared social, business and technological resources and have the ability to transform an entire area, whether a neighborhood or a city. Bacigalupo and Dickert (Bacigalupo, T. and Dicket, S. NewWorkCity, August 2008) state coworking spaces assist their local communities in three general ways: Providing a space for free-flow of technical and creative expertise coworking spaces have a culture of share and support. This provides for a rapid transference of difficult-to-learn knowledge in the areas of technology (e.g. programming, system administration and applications) and creativity (techniques, strategies, information sources).  Providing a support infrastructure for new entrepreneurs in coworking spaces, the trials and tribulations of starting up or running a knowledge-based business is often a common thread for a community of knowledge of workers.​

By providing people a way to speak to their fellow entrepreneur, coworking spaces help make it easier for people to get their businesses off the ground. Providing long-term economic value without government investment coworking leverages the existing openness of modern entrepreneurs. Members are not simply customers; they are active in maintaining and growing the community. When many of these talented individuals are put together in the same room new ideas are cultivated and newer stronger businesses are born. This culture of growth can generate additional tax revenue and economic value for the host city.

3D Printing

Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using additive processes, where an object is created by laying down successive layers of material. 3D printing is considered distinct from traditional machining techniques (subtractive processes) which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting and drilling.
