Cowork Rochester

Co-working Plus

Posted in Uncategorized by Erik on February 8, 2010

Inc. ran an article last month about a new trend in co-working which is being dubbed Co-working plus. Co-working plus can “offer services to entrepreneurs beyond the sense of community and networking that co-working traditionally supplies.” Offering access to investors and mentoring without the traditional business incubator model that requires an application processes to gain access to resources. Taking co-working plus a slightly different way, it could be thought of  business incubator light.

The business incubator model isn’t new to this region. Owatonna has the closest incubator to Rochester I was able to locate. The Owatonna Business Incubator caters heavily to manufacturing startups. The Minnesota BioBusiness Center in downtown Rochester would be a ripe location to see a new bio-tech or technology incubator or open up.
