For a small company, renting an entire office can be expensive and inefficient, not to mention lonely (especially when you’re still riding solo).
Thankfully, coworking spaces have grown in prominence and popularity over the last few years, exposing freelancers, entrepreneurs, remote workers and tiny teams to shared workspaces, community programming and some pretty fun perks.
And while we certainly have love in our hearts for big names like Galvanize and WeWork, we want to highlight some of Colorado’s lesser-known coworking spaces, too.
