Simply defined, a coworking space is a shared office for independent workers who want the structure of an office. But that description doesn’t account for the collaborations and communities that form in coworking spaces. To understand that, you need to check out coworking yourself — and the valley has a growing number of places where you can.
“We’re at capacity,” said Nicole Mastrangelo, community manager of Co-Operate on Main. The locally owned coworking space is adding locations — one recently opened on Water Street in Henderson, and another will soon open on Third Street Downtown. There’s very little turnover, she adds: “Most of the people here have been with us since the beginning.”
Some of Vegas’ shared work spaces include Proof of Concept, located inside a vintage Downtown house; Innevation, created by Switch data centers CEO Rob Roy; and Bloom, a coworking spot that caters to women. At this point, there’s probably a coworking space in your neighborhood, waiting for your big idea.
