My name is Isaac Gilman. I have posted once before on this forum, but overall love reading about all the great things happening around the coworking world.
I am the manager of a brand new coworking space in Detroit called Junction440. We opened last week and are super excited for the future of coworking in Detroit and all around.
In addition, over the last few months a number of coworking spaces have opened in the city, due to a major resurgence in entrepreneurial minded people. Coworking is fairly new to the city, but it has been around in other areas of Michigan for a number of years. In order to raise awareness about cowokring in Detroit, a few coworking spaces have gathered over the last few months to talk about creating a week long event highlighting coworking in the city.
I wanted to bring your attention to Detroit’s first ever coworking week, called Co-Lab Detroit. A number of different spaces are hosting lunch and/or evening events throughout the week. On Friday, we are all offering a free coworking day as well. We hope it will bring a lot of awareness to the idea of coworking and to highlight all the great spaces in the city.
Love to hear if others have done similar things, or what others think of the idea.
