Lovely article. I believe co-working spaces like the Collective are vital to the momentum of the entrepreneurial movement here in Reno!
Another collaborative workspace in Reno just opened and it's called Fusion@Midtown Premier Coworking. It's a community-driven space for creative freelancers and unique businesses that infuses a lot of the culture and vibrance of Midtown into everything they do. Plus, all the best new Midtown shops are in walking distance!
While the Collective is forming the structure and community backbone of the Downtown/Riverwalk entrepreneurial ecosystem, Fusion@Midtown is sparking it's own small-business movement in the heart of Reno and bringing local business owners, ambitious startups, and creative collaborators together.
Check it out at http://fusionatmidtown.com - perhaps there's a way the Collective could collaborate with Fusion and bring the business communities in Reno together!
