So, you’ve moved to Denver, and after looking for a job around the city, you’ve decided it’s time to do your own thing. After all, with all of the beauty this place has to offer, why put yourself in a 9-5 in traditional office space when you can have more freedom in your schedule and spend your days in a cool coworking spot? We’ve put together a list of the best coworking spaces in Denver to inspire you to take a new direction.
For the ecologically conscious
Green Spaces, located in the RiNO Arts District, attracts green startups and environmentally conscious. Since Denver is known as one of the greenest cities in the country, it’s a perfect fit. Green Spaces is fully solar-powered, with over 160 solar panels powering the entire building. It also runs on a zero-waste footprint and prides itself on being the US’ first green co-work (though the first location was in Brooklyn, NY, they are not headquartered in Denver). Everything in the office is responsibly sourced, and a portion of their income is donated to green businesses. They even have a second location in Winter Park, and members have the luxury of using either location.
Membership perks include ecological peace of mind, dog-friendly environment, members-only events, complimentary tea, coffee, and refreshments in the communal kitchen, and other benefits which vary by membership level.
For the tech-heads
In the heart of Denver’s tech scene sits Galvanize – Platte, and it tends to attract workers and startups in the high tech space. They also boast the largest collection of programming, data sciences, and web development courses in Denver, which is a draw for those who want to keep developing their talent along the way. Neighbors of Galvanize include Slack, Xero, and Pivotal Labs, so you’re sure to rub shoulders with fellow tech nerds throughout the neighborhood.
Amenities include nearly a dozen conference rooms, weekly workshops, business mentors, free printing, and five state-of-the-art classrooms.
