  • Come Together. Work Together

  • With its new Work Together Business Studio and Co-Space, the Chamber rolls out the welcome mat for local creatives, entrepreneurs and small businesses.

    In keeping with its primary mission — to create and preserve local jobs —

    The Chamber has created a new space for place makers, creatives, small businesses, entrepreneurs, freelancers and the community to connect, innovate, create, train and empower. Called the Work Together Business Studio and Co-Space, located at 600 S. Court Street, the space offers co-working and meeting spaces, but it will also host dynamic programming and events beginning in 2020.

    By launching and supporting a casual, inclusive space designed to foster creativity and collaboration between local makers, creatives, side-hustlers, entrepreneurs and small businesses, the Chamber is also supporting job creation and growth. By acting as a bridge to join these entities and therefore, help them flourish, the Business Studio allows the Chamber to do what it does best: connect people to people and people to resources.

    Everything about the space’s look, feel and programming is planned to bring people together to share ideas, issues and successes with no boundaries. No matter their dream, passion or current position, the Business Studio is a place where anyone can come create the life and world they want. The Business Studio’s messaging — “You’re in the right place!" — communicates this.
