Coworking spaces are really popping up all over. After my post earlier this week about a new venture in the Twin Cities, I’ve been contacted about several interesting spaces that have either recently opened or are due to open soon:

  • Lightbulb Coworking, Charlotte, N.C. Charlotte’s first coworking space recently opened in the historic Southend District. Lightbulb’s Tyler Ford says that, unusually for this type of venture, the space opened without a network of predetermined members or commitments of any kind, but despite that, spaces have filled fast.
  • The Factory, Grand Rapids, Mich. Still in its first month, this new 2,000-square-foot facility is a nicely designed, flexible workplace that is aimed at home-based workers and entrepreneurs. The Factory supports the Coworking Visa project.
  • bzhive, Marin County, Calif. This honey-flavored space will be opened in February 2010, serving Marin County and its neighbors. Interestingly, it should provide free access to drop-ins, as long as space is available.

If you’re involved with a new coworking venture, let us know about it in the comments.

    C4 Workspace in San Antonio Texas was six months old last Friday. In coworking years that’s like a decade.
    Thanks for keeping coworking in the spotlight. Now if we could get mainstream media to take it seriously rather than just a “neat” feature story.
    Cheers!

  9. Love this coworking space roundup! We have been open in Los Angeles since 2008 (http://www.blankspaces.com/) and are trying get another location started in the near future. We hope to see more spaces and in more places!
