Cohere, Cothere…Now There’s Coworking Everywhere!

cohere opens second location

OK maybe not everywhere, but we’re getting there.

That’s right! Cohere is officially opening a second coworking space in Fort Collins!

The new space, affectionately dubbed ‘Cothere’, is located at 2120 South College Ave. Members will have easy access to Whole Foods (across the street) as well as the new Max station (hooray public transit!).

We believe in working independently, but together. And now, whether you’re a work at home Mom who needs a distraction-free desk one night a week, or a small business owner looking to get out of the garage, we now offer two conveniently-located coworking spaces where you can rub shoulders with some of the most talented, creative entrepreneurs in Fort Collins.

In addition to a flexible work area, the space features three private offices large enough for a 2-3 person start-up company. Amenities include WiFi/Hardwire; use of the common space including restrooms, a kitchen (microwave, free unlimited coffee, fridge); and small conference room that seats up to 6 with an HDMI-ready flat screen TV for presentations. And of course the awesome community of freelancers and small business owners that will soon call Cothere home!

BONUS! Members of either location are welcome to work at both offices for no extra charge. This makes it even easier to meet your clients in the place that’s most convenient. And happy clients mean happy business owners!

The entire Fort Collins community is invited to attend the grand opening of Cohere’s second location on Thursday, May 15 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.

Can’t make it? Request a tour or free day pass to either Cohere location at http://coherecommunity.com/free-coworking-day-pass.

Happy 4th Anniversary Cohere! Let’s Play Alumni Catch-Up

happy anniversary Cohere

That’s right folks, it’s already been FOUR long, wonderful, coworking-filled years since our community officially opened! It’s hard to believe. We started with just a handful of independents working in the loft space on Jefferson Street, and now, Cohere has almost 50 members, we’re charging full steam ahead with Cohere: Bandwidth (our effort to bring shared rehearsal space to the local music scene), and (fingers crossed!) opening a new Midtown location soon.

Thinking about all that’s happened since we became Fort Collins’ first coworking space got me thinking about our alumni. Those members who were there in the early stages, but have moved on to other things or places because of life or work or both!

So I decided to play a little game of Cohere Alumni Catch-up (aka Where are they now?!) Enjoy catching up with your colleagues below, and thank you for supporting this small, woman-owned business. YOU ARE ALL MY FAVORITE!

When I joined Cohere, I was working as a freelance Drupal developer. I had been in Drupal for a little over a year and was still pretty green.

3. What is your favorite memory of Cohere?
Learning from other professionals who became my friends. Getting to work with such different people, expand my network of colleagues and friends was invaluable and treasured. A particular memory that stands out is walking to the hot dog stand with friends for lunch.

Working remotely for Canonical.

Living in San Francisco, eating $4 toast, and paying way too much to live in a twitter-sized apartment. On the plus side, it’s always sunny and in the 60s.

3. What is your favorite memory of Cohere?
Culinary camaraderie, whether it was helping the sweet toothers find the perfect gelato or on a more personal note, discovering that Big Al’s would stack as many 60/40 bacon/burger patties on top of each other as you wanted.
