Gourmet cafeterias, discounted gym memberships and expensive artwork used to be luxuries afforded only by big corporate offices.
Entrepreneurs can now get the same or better amenities from a co-working space. These communal offices are an affordable solution to a private office, and offer perks that working in a solo office doesn't.
We've come up with a list of some of the coolest co-working spaces in America, from coast to coast.
Location: Denver, Colo. and New York, N.Y.
Membership: Starts at $100/month
Green Spaces is one of the most popular co-working spaces for sustainable, green-related startups. The spaces in Denver and New York call themselves "hubs for good," and each offers a stimulating environment for "values-based companies."
Green Spaces offers some startups access to their coveted accelerator program, where entrepreneurs can talk to mentors, get peer-to-peer feedback, and other small business resources.
Members can also attend weekly networking events and fundraisers, and receive referrals for a variety of services from bookkeeping to marketing to help them run successful startups.
