Thank you for responding. If we want to move this to another forum just let me know where
I think Mike, formerly of Altamont Cowork, summerized some of my points well in a blog post he sent me
Since I founded The Armory in Loveland, Colorado just over three years ago I have come across some similar issues with people just wanting to have private offices. How have others addressed this? How have you evaluated the need for coworking in your city when considering the future of your community and space?
I am considering finding a new space that would allow me to have some private offices to stabilize cash flow. I would prefer to stay purely a coworking space without offices, but I don’t think I can maintain in the long run as a business without them.
I currently am averaging around 20 members that use the space each month and have been at a sustainable place financially but not making enough money to be able to save or take any income. I feel like I have tapped out the different networking/meetups for potential members. Do any others have tips for finding new members?
My city is situated just south of Fort Collins, and 45-60 minutes north of Boulder & Denver. The city has never had a true tech, entrepreneurial, and freelance community similar to Mike in his blog post. It has been developing and growing over the past couple years and our community has been helping with that. What have other spaces in cities that don’t have thriving tech communities done to facilitate the connections of those in their cities that do work in those industries?

I’m interested in connecting with other space owners/operators in cities with a population under 100,000. I currently run a space in Loveland, CO with a population of 70,000. I think this size cities present unique circumstances that differ from metro areas. I have a few questions I would like to ask via email as I consider the next phase for our coworking community in Loveland, CO.
