Online PR News – 27-June-2013 – Naples, FL – New entrepreneur magazine debuts on the web with a mission to fuel Southwest Florida’s blossoming tech and startup community.

‘Coworking’ or shared office spaces have emerged as one of the hottest trends over the last 12 months with locations popping up from Silicon Valley to New York, Chicago and Miami. However, it was Brett Diamond and Venture X that brought the concept to Southwest Florida, sparking a new startup community that appears to be planting the region firmly on the map of areas that are taking off in the new economy.

Located at the prestigious Mercato fashion mall in Naples, Florida, Venture X has seen a huge surge in new freelance professionals and small businesses rushing to claim their spot in the space that is fast becoming one of the most exciting business hubs in the state. Venture X members currently include many high profile international companies with tech entrepreneurs flying in from Houston and Europe to become a part of it.

In a recent blog on “The Future of Office Space” Venture X founder Brett Diamond points to a recent survey by Deliotte showing 46% of CFOs stating telecommuting as only being second to compensation as the best way to attract great talent as part of the reason for the surge in the trend. Additionally Brett refers to a Real Estate Insights report that shows 40% of college students stating they would be willing to accept less pay in exchange for more flexibility and mobility.

One of, in fact the first official startup to actually go live in a big way out of Venture X’s Mercato location is hot new entrepreneur publication G-Code Magazine. G-Code Magazine co-founder Tim Houghten says “the decision to launch out of Venture X has been incredibly rewarding, and far more profitable than other, and more expensive potential office solutions” and specifically “The open floor plan coworking zone that makes up much of the space at Mercato has enabled more collaboration and traction”.

G-Code Magazine is also readying to heavily invest in the Southwest Florida startup sector as well. An entrepreneur magazine come online accelerator which is best described as a blend of, Inc. Magazine and 500 Startups, plans to dedicate 10% of profits to providing seed money and startup capital for new small businesses and entrepreneurs. The company says it hopes that this will result in at least $2 million in new funding for brand new startups over the next 18 months.

In fact, G-Code Magazine has already begun to have a positive impact on the local economy and freelance community through hiring other tech professionals based out of Venture X and supporting local vendors for print and design needs. The publication is also a member of the Christian Chamber of Southwest Florida which is based out of Fort Myers, FL.

Browsing some of the no-holds barred, power packed content being published by the Christian Entrepreneur Magazine readers will find inside interviews and tips from CEOs of multi-billion dollar international corporations and the low down on what really works when it comes to online marketing today based on extensive testing.

The magazine is expected to be available via iPad app and in print by August 1st, 2013. For those looking for more information on getting their business ventures funded or for interviews visit the magazine’s website at
