Local spaces innovate to serve dispersed teams and mobile freelancers
The Colorado coworking world is always innovating. We’re about to change the way dispersed teams and mobile professionals work and collaborate with the nation’s first statewide coworking membership.
The new Colorado Coworking Passport is a single membership that gives individuals and teams access to over a dozen independent coworking locations in six cities. Coworking has changed the way individuals and teams work, and now the Coworking Passport is a new way for larger companies to join the movement. Over 60% of professionals have some form of workplace flexibility, and more teams are dispersed without a central office than ever before. The Coworking Passport was designed on the trend of workplace mobility and is a simple and affordable option that will change the way Colorado businesses approach workspace and collaboration.
Coworking spaces are shared work spaces where mobile freelancers, startups, and remote workers come together to work in vibrant environments. According to recent study by DeskMag, there are numerous benefits to leaving a home-office and coworking beside other smart and friendly people. Workers reported a boost in creativity, a healthier work/life balance, and an overall increase in productivity. Craig Baute, founder of Creative Density and the Passport, explains: "when a company is recruiting new employees, the Coworking Passport can be a deciding factor for candidates in competitive fields or with workers that can’t or don’t want to work from home. The Passport also expands recruiting opportunities for companies, by expanding their potential pool and workforce to the entire state, not just the city they're located in." Baute goes on to say, "It has the potential to really change the way Colorado companies think about location while exposing their services and ideas throughout the state."
The Coworking Passport is launching in January 2014. We're excited to work with forward-thinking companies which have disbursed teams and remote workers. It starts at a low monthly cost of $350 per member and has passport spaces in Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, Parker, Durango, and Louisville. The Colorado Coworking Passport was founded by Craig Baute who started Creative Density in 2011 and the Denver Coworking Alliance.
