FRISCO, Colo. – Sept. 28, 2014 – When the doors open to ELEVATE coSPACE on Oct. 1, the four female founders believe their new co-working space will, in turn, open doors for others. As Frisco, Colorado’s first coworking space their mission is simple but powerful: Be the place and space to elevate your ideas, work and life.
“The way people work is continuing to change and where and how they work is evolving,” says Megan Erickson, one of the newest founders of the group who also owns be.Media House and started CoLabs in Boulder five years ago. “We’re helping to catalyze that revolution by offering a more flexible and affordable place to work with an inspiring and professional community.”
Then there’s the location. Talk about inspiring.
Situated at 711 Granite Street just steps away from historic downtown Frisco, Colorado and in the same plaza as Backcountry Brewery, Podium Sports and Abbey’s Coffee Shop, ELEVATE offers 3,000 square feet of space for work and events with log beams, soaring vaulted ceilings, bright natural light, beautiful original artwork in addition to “flex” desks, communal tables, workstations, private offices, conference meeting space and a café-style gathering spot. Centrally located in the hub of Colorado ski country near the ski resorts of Vail, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain and Keystone, ELEVATE offers weekly skiing meetups, educational business sessions, a speaker series with tech leaders, as well as innovative events like Ignite Summit.
Coworking is not a new idea, says Wendy Basey, one of the founders of ELEVATE who is also a business consultant and owner of Biz Bolts. “There’s been a boom in the number and type of co-working spaces around the country that allow members and guests to rent a work spot for the day, week, month or year. Now, coworking is moving up to 9,100 feet in the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and offering locals an opportunity to work on their own but not alone.
Colorado is becoming known as the place for innovation – not just tech innovation but innovations in policy, design, marketing, small business, tourism and, yes, in technology.
“We believe that ELEVATE is a game changer,” says Amy Kemp, a co-founder and owner of Mountaintop Media, a PR and social media agency that will be based out of ELEVATE. “We’re working to create a hub of innovation connected to Denver, Boulder, other mountain communities and beyond. We have a unique opportunity to be a true hub not just for tech but for anyone who wants to do inspiring and innovative work in a spectacular and inspiring location.”
ELEVATE recently joined forces with six other mountain coworking spaces to form the Mountain Co-Working Alliance and just announced a new partnership with Rocky Mountain Patent and The Quandary Group based in Denver, Colo.
“At ELEVATE, we’re cultivating a welcoming and inclusive community,” says Julia Landon, co-founder of ELEVATE and owner of Bun in the Oven, a high-nutrient bakery. Landon is ELEVATE’s membership and guest services director. “If you’re looking to learn, grow and elevate your work, join us. We believe that collaboration and community combined with the opportunity to pursue your passion is the key to success. Our mission is to help other entrepreneurs, business owners, remote workers and students to solve problems, create new products and services and/or boost what they’re already doing. That’s why we’re partnering with the best from patent lawyers to award-winning marketing agencies to branding companies to developers and designers. We’re focused on creating an innovative and inspiring community in a professional collaborative environment.”
