Twin Cities Business Magazine reporter Burl Gilyard recently reported on a collaboration between six southern Minnesota work-share spaces in a February 11th column titled, Passport’ Program Connects Southern Minnesota Co-working Spaces. Winona is represented among the six spaces with The Garage Cowork Space.
The article discusses a new program designed to give those who use these places more flexibility concerning the locations in which they work, and offers price discounts to join the ‘Passport’ initiative.
Gilyard writes, “The ongoing expansion of co-working office space is largely an urban phenomenon. More than half of all Twin Cities co-working space is in downtown Minneapolis, according to the latest research from Cushman & Wakefield Minneapolis-St. Paul. But co-working has also taken root in outstate Minnesota.” He goes on to report, “Twin Cities office brokers are forgiven for not knowing that there were any co-working spaces in southern Minnesota, much less six.”
Gilyard gives his readers the details of this new program, writing, “The new Punch Card Passport costs $99 and can be used for five visits to any of the participating co-working spaces. The Monthly Passport costs $250 and allows unlimited access to all of the spaces during posted “drop-in” hours.”
“The six co-working spaces in the program are:
- Mogwai Collaborative, Mankato
- Launch Coworking Space, Austin
- Collider Coworking, Rochester
- Red Wing Ignite, Red Wing
- The Garage Cowork Space, Winona
- Pi-co.works, Pine Island”
We at Visit Winona are proud to have The Garage operating in Winona. It offers both travelers and locals a wonderful and flexible choice for those who prefer to use intentionally designed, shared spaces with all the amenities of a regular office space for working.
