Third Thursday: Co-working Spaces

A renovated cottage becomes an office space of meeting rooms and fun areas for a diverse mix of freelancers, consultants and individual members to gather and interact. A garage in a historic downtown opens as an entrepreneur center featuring an innovative open space office, meeting and event venue where entrepreneurship, education and networking are offered.
This webinar will profile two co-working spaces in Greater Minnesota: WORKUP in Willmar and The Garage Co-working Space in Winona. And we’ll learn how Colorado is using co-working spaces to support economic development across the state.



  • WORKUP supports an entrepreneurial culture for members and non-members of the organization. Betsy Bonnema will share how a co-working space can spur a startup scene.
  • Myron White from the Winona Port Authority will discuss how a public- private partnership turned an old building into a co-working and community space for entrepreneurs.
  • Dennis Lankes  from Proximity, will also join the conversation. Proximity is a Colorado based technology firm providing a platform for managing co-working spaces and connecting their members. They will share what is happening in Colorado to build out co-working spaces across the state as well as how their platform is helping entrepreneurs and innovators connect to the broader state ecosystem.


There is no charge to attend this webinar, but participants must register. A link to join the webinar will be sent to registrants the day before the presentation.
