A thriving hub sitting in an old town steeped in history and known as the 2nd most entrepreneurial city in America, Galavanize in Fort Collins (think 30+ craft breweries to drown any sorrows in) is where ambitious engineers and entrepreneurs network, collaborate and hang out. The funky high-ceilinged space is where ideas soar, networking is a way of life whether it is for a good old gasbag or a shoulder to lean on and successes are celebrated.
A tight-knit dynamic community where you can learn, work and grow, there are dozens of events held on a monthly basis from business pitch workshops, to hackathons and technology meet-ups to attend, whether you are a member or not. Member only programs include fundraising networking events with startups and established company panels, fireside chats with gurus of the tech industry and topics that cover all business aspects to get your feet in step with your brain.
The bonus of being a part of this community is the fact that at Galvanize, they have an in-house venture capital arm that is always on the lookout for early stage investments in their member’s creations. Even if their seed capital is not suitable, you will have access to their network, making this the perfect place to learn about venture capital and the fundraising process.
The door is open to start-ups and established companies building tech innovations where you can find all the amenities of a coworking space from a seat to a desk to a private suite or conference room, depending on the number of cohorts collaborating. If you need to hold a meeting, there is one meeting room for up to 8 excited bodies and another for up to 16 to congregate in. You can slurp on coffee, grab a complimentary snack, safely store your bicycle, attend a workshop, take a Skype call in a phone booth for privacy or run off at the mouth with a mentor.
Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, workaholics need not fear that they can’t get to their desk. There is high speed Wi-Fi to keep you connected, plenty of coffee or tea to get the juices flowing, ergonomic chairs to keep your posture intact, a chill-out area to de-stress in when the mind explodes, and the necessary printer, scanner and photocopier if you have to put words on paper.
