LookFar, a New Orleans-based idea acceleration company, will begin offering shared working space in the Central Business District to help local entrepreneurs get started while avoiding the financial burden of leasing permanent space.

Founded this year, LookFar builds Web apps and e-commerce solutions and business tools for startups and established businesses. Clients are offered a discounted rate in exchange for equity in their business.

The office space, located at 935 Gravier St., will offer amenities such as lounge areas, arcade games, a kitchen and a pool table.

Lindsay Fox, LookFar’s vice president of brand strategy, said the hub space is intended to help the company’s startup clients focus on growing their business.

Budding entrepreneurs will have two options: an independent desk with a lockable drawer for $175 per month, or space at a shared desk table for $100 per month.
