Cohere’s motto is “be independent together.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Co-working is a way for freelance professionals to work on individual projects and contracts near other technically creative people in a shared space.
Meet Angel Kwiatkowski, Curator of Cohere. Just 89 days after Angel first heard of the term co-working, she opened up shop for 6 hungry professionals. Hungry for professional interaction and connectivity that is! What Angel sells and grows is community and relationships.
Many of the Cohere clients have home offices, or work spaces. They also know about the coffee shops in town that have free Wi-Fi and refillable coffee mugs. What they get in the Cohere co-working office is a cut above. There is an office feel, with an open layout of desks and chairs, conference room, coffee pots and snacks and central reception. This is not a stuffy place, however. Original brick line the walls of the historic office space off of Jefferson Street. Little nooks and crannies hide a kitchenette, quiet cell phone room and cozy loft just for pressing deadlines and uber solitary time.
Angel has thirty clients that sign up for daily or monthly desk space. She has room for twenty more. Lease rates range from $48 per month for 1 day/week or 4 days a month, to $249 for the whole month, 24/7 access. There are all kinds of combinations available. If you’d like to give it a try for a day, check out their free day-pass online.
With a rich background in human resources and organizational development, Angel provides her clients with some unique opportunities. She hosts numerous business classes on site covering topics such as Contracting 101 and Sales Tactics. This winter, clients can sign up for a series of classes titled "Winter Learnin".
While many urban and city locales have embraced co-working, this is definitely a first for Fort Collins and worth checking out if your work keeps you at home, in front of a computer, alone.
