I’m one of the co-founders of COCO, a coworking community in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. We launched way back in 2009. In the midst of a recession. (Brilliant move, right?) Well, we survived and managed to grow this thing to 4 locations and over 1,000 members. And we’re continuing to grow. We’re energized by the challenge of creating a thriving community, being a resource for entrepreneurs and independents — while also being a profitable business.
