Attention Boulder County Entrepreneurs! New Co-Working Space at Red Idea Partners!


Attention Boulder County Entrepreneurs!Red Idea Partners:  Venture Works Garage Passes

On October 1, Red Idea Partners in Boulder is formally opening its "Venture Works Garage" (yes, there are several cool garage doors) to fellow entrepreneurs, go-getters and creative spirits! We are located at 4760 Walnut Street, Suite 106.

We are in our 8th year as a firm, with a strategy consulting business, geared toward helping entrepreneurs and corporate innovators launch and grow their companies or new products.  We are also venture investors--stakeholders in more than a dozen companies like Bhakti Chai.  While our primary focus is food, beverage and consumer products--we are interested also in emerging technologies, particularly renewable and eco-efficient, online enterprises, and financial services companies.  We are believers in the long haul of building companies.  Rather than short-term acceleration, we have built our ecosystem, co-officing environment and business philosophy around working together with fellow entrepreneurs over years, not months.

Whimsically akin to Willy Wonka finally opening his candy factory for a tour, we've also just selected one "golden ticket" winner from our recent Alley Feastival Party (congrats to Christopher at Keen One Quinoa!).  This lucky winner gets 6 months of fulltime use of a desk/work station at the Garage. Now, we're offering these "Venture Works Garage" passes for sale for $275/month, per work station.  We have around 10 spaces available in an open work space environment.  There is a brief screening process, so if you are interested please email us  Please briefly describe your business and your interest in the pass, so we can conclude it's a good mutual fit for our collective of entrepreneurs.  Additionally, we may have less space than requests for passes, so please understand we may not be able to accept all applicants for that reason as well.  We are a friendly, fun community so this is for folks who play nice with others!  

There are around 35 people in our building already, who are part of Red Idea or other companies with whom we are partnered or connected.  This is the first time we've extended the opportunity to join our adventurous collective.  We look forward to this step infusing our community with even more synergies in our mix.    

So if you like ideas, startups and working with fellow entrepreneurs, this is your kind of place.  If you're not a startup, but you still think you fit into our mix, feel free to make your case in your email!
