Local 64 is a platform to launch your business, connect with creatives, and engage the community
We’re proud to have released a guide to coworking for the Green Mountain State. Coworking in Vermont: A Starter Guide is written to support entrepreneurs and business leaders think through the potential of building a coworking hub in communities across Vermont.
The basic insight provided in Coworking in Vermont is that successful coworking spaces arise from, and are built upon, strong communities. It is far less common to find coworking spaces established and succeed on the “build it and they will come” model. Our coworking guide provides entrepreneurs and local leaders with an easy-to-follow model based on research, community-building, planning, and execution.
“Coworking in Vermont” is composed of four sections:
The intent is to get entrepreneurs and leaders in Vermont’s small towns and cities thinking about how coworking spaces fit into the local small business and creative ecology. We’ve drawn from insights gleaned from our own experience setting up a coworking space in Montpelier, as well as input from other coworking leaders and important reference documents produced by the larger coworking community — in the U.S. and around the world. We conclude the guide with a handy checklist intended to help coworking startups stage and execute key activities.
