• Co-Working Spaces Just for Women

    POSTED October 17, 2019

    Charley Co. & RISE Collaborate Workspace, Denver

Earlier this year, we mentioned cool co-working spaces in Durango and Leadville. Now we have two more to share, both in Denver and focused on women.

RISE Collaborative Workspace has expanded beyond St. Louis by opening a new location in Denver on the corner of Colorado and 7th Avenue, in a space that exceeds 10,000 square feet and is located above Snooze Eatery and U.S. Bank. Denver RISE has 14 private offices, 10 dedicated desks, three conference rooms, one classroom, a social media room and more. RISE focuses on meeting the unique needs of businesswomen by engaging them with a community of members and providing collaboration opportunities and educational programming. Through its nonprofit arm RISE Society, high school girls can enroll in a mentorship program where they are matched with an adult member of RISE.

Charley Co. opened this summer inside The Source Hotel + Market Hall in RiNo and seeks members who are looking for more than just a place to sit. The goal is to build a community of driven women with the desire to grow alongside one another in their professional and personal lives. Charley Co. also has partnered with local companies to provide convenience like in-house salon services, dry cleaning, mailboxes to use as a business addresses, pop-up fitness classes, and a speakers series. Occupying the second level of the new hotel and market hall, Charley Co. spans 5,650 square feet and features six offices, four conference rooms, 1,000 square feet of open co-working space with desks, a break room, a mother’s nursing room, a library nook, and more.

Who says you can’t have a meeting without some pampering mixed in? Several hot springs resorts in the U.S. Mountain West can accommodate smaller meetings complete with lodging, function space, din- ing and soaking. Some even have on-site spas and other standout features like an ice museum or microbrewery to include on an itinerary.


Erase any vision you might have of a dude ranch, especially the “City Slicker” version. For the purposes of this story, let’s use the name ranch resort and picture a big dose of vision and thousands of acres for both herds and people to roam. It’s a fairly different option, but one with similar friendliness and the Western spirit of a dude ranch.


To say Wisconsin is having a moment would be an understatement. A statewide renaissance resulting in plenty of new developments, impressive renovations and entrepreneurial ventures has been years in the making and shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.
