We are happy to introduce you to CoSolve, one of the great spaces in the Proximity Network! CoSolve is located in Longmont, Colorado in a cool building with lots of open space and polished concrete floors.  Recently we asked owners Kim Tucker and Dixon Dick answered a few questions about their space:

When did you open your coworking space?
We opened July 2016 on the 3rd floor of an old newspaper building and have been rehabbing two other floors since then.
Tell us about your space? How big is it? What kinds of amenities do you have?
As a startup, we’ve done very little to our space other than get walls and carpet up. So far, we are using scratch furniture we’ve picked up or had donated, so we have a startup atmosphere still.
We have about 16,000 square feet, in three different spaces. Our 3rd floor smaller space is about 4,000 square feet, and we are moving that towards art, design supported by technology. Our 2nd floor is designed around our event space, which has three rooms setup for 50 or more people, including multimedia support and a kitchen. Our 1st floor space is pretty wide open, and we hope to support child care when that comes online shortly.
What is your favorite thing about operating a coworking space?
The community members we have met are awesome, it really doesn’t get better than that. Many relationships will be lifelong.
What has been the most surprising and/or unexpected thing about operating a coworking space?
It’s so much harder than we thought to get the word out and market well. Marketing is one thing, marketing abstract feelings is another. Sure, it’s all about productivity, but what makes your space different?
What’s your favorite story of one of your members?
Two different member groups that didn’t know each other brought their talents together to work on a project in India.
What is your biggest piece of advice for someone wanting to open a space?
Attitude is so important, everyone will feel what you are feeling and it will grow a community like you, whether you like it or not. The give back is everything, because if you are in it strictly for real estate, it will be hard.
