NEWS: First Coworking Space in Frisco Opens this Fall

FRISCO, Colo. – July 15, 2014 – Starting Oct. 1, 2014, Colorado’s mountain town locals and visitors will have a new, more flexible way to work with the debut of ELEVATE coSPACE, the central Rocky Mountain’s only co-working space. The open-concept, open-schedule, come-one come-all workspace and community gathering place will be located in downtown Frisco, Colo. in what is now the Buffalo Mountain Gallery.

The co-working space will give startups, entrepreneurs, business owners, students, corporate workers and visitors to the mountain resort communities a place to work and gather. The first co-working space in America opened in San Francisco in 2005. Since then, the concept has spread through major cities around the country. Now, the shared workspace movement is coming to Summit County.

Co-working spaces give members and guests the opportunity to work on their own but not alone in an collaborative environment that invites connection and community. ELEVATE coSPACE will bring co-working to Colorado’s mountain resort communities, providing a much-needed service for locals and visitors as well as a boost for the local and state economy.

According to the ELEVATE team, the Buffalo Mountain Gallery will continue to display their artwork in the space as well as maintain a separate area for their framing business. The co-working space will occupy the majority of the building, a 2,600-square-foot two-story space with log beams, soaring vaulted ceilings, bright light and beautiful artwork, that will be transformed into a unique, co-working space with modular desks, communal tables, private offices, conference meeting space as well as a café-style gathering spot with baked goods by Bun in the Oven High Nutrient Bakery.

“It’s more than just a place to land your laptop or rent a computer or workspace,” said the ELEVATE team of Julia Landon, Amy Kemp and Wendy Basey. “ELEVATE coSPACE will offer classes, mentorship, meet ups and support to help local and visiting startups, business owners, students, corporate workers and anyone who is looking to learn, grow and elevate their work and thereby their life. We’re about collaborating, connecting and community and believe that you should ‘work where you play and play where you work.’”

The ELEVATE coSPACE team is an all-female team comprised of:

Julia Landon: chef and owner of Bun in the Oven High Nutrient Bakery;

Amy Kemp: founder of Mountaintop Media, a social, PR and content agency; and

Wendy Basey: a Colorado Certified Business consultant and owner of Biz Bolts online.

 Reservations for the co-working space and event rentals are available now for an anticipated opening date of Oct. 1, 2014. Guest passes start at $15 and one-month memberships are $315. Sign up now to reserve your space or to join the newsletter. Visit www.elevatecospace.com/pricing
