I listened with envy to Corey Snipes, a friend and colleague in Denver, when he talked about being a member of the Hive, a coworking space. I have rented an office in the past, but always thought a coworking space was a no brainer business plan in Boulder, given all the tech startups, one person PR firms and entrepeneurial environment. After all, some of what I miss about being independent was that water cooler talk, or the ability to just bounce ideas off someone in real time. (Yes, I imagine twitter fills that need for some.) I remember a few emails floating around the New Tech Meetup mailing list, but never heard of a plan come to fruition. But then again, perhaps I just discounted Boulder’s real estate market as a barrier to entry.
Anyway, today, Corey sent on an email announcing Carbon Space, Boulder’s very own coworking space. Located off 30th street, between Valmont and Pearl, with plans starting at $199/month, I hope this space succeeds. Hey, I may even check it out myself! Visit the website for more details.
