And now that LeadPages, the business he co-founded, has been called the fastest growing Minnesota startup, he’s in the press. All that to say, if you’re in the Twin Cities startup scene, chances are you know Clay or at least know of him. So, what in the world could you hope to learn about Clay Collins that hasn’t already been divulged? That’s what I asked myself prior to our chat.

They’ve recently been exploring more and more the lounge/conference rooms side of the business, and in my opinion, explore nex

  • The elevator pitch for coworking

    Don Ball
    2 Dec 2014 | 12:43 pm
    Believe it or not, there are still plenty of people who aren’t familiar with coworking. We recently had some business community leaders ask us to help them understand what coworking is and why they should care. In other words, our elevator pitch. Below is what we sent over. (Ok, perhaps it’s really more of an “escalator pitch.”) It’s no surprise that thanks to mobile technology (laptops, cell phones), there are more people than ever who are able to—and do—work outside of a traditional office. Many are self-employed. Increasingly, many are remote employees.

Because our members are so diverse, you never know where a conversation at CoCo might lead. And you never know who’s going to give you that little dose of inspiration that will help you pursue your own dream with extra vigor.

  • Financial Modeling: How to Plan for Success Early On

    Trishna Kumar
    29 Jul 2014 | 12:06 pm
    Financial Modeling has been considered one of the hardest steps in the startup journey to DIY early-on. Here at PARISOMA, we believe that this doesn’t have to be the case. With a solid financial model, you will be able to foreshadow and understand potential changes, good or bad. A financial model will allow you to have structure and a plan to follow when dealing with your company’s finances. It will also act as a concrete version of the vision you have for your company; a resume if you will. Being able to trust your model and know what you need to survive and how to profit as a small…

As an online 3D printing service, Sculpteo prints products and ships them to their customers. What is 3D Printing? Nora defines 3D printing as “the way to build an item from scratch.” With the wide variety of personal and portable 3D printers currently becoming available on the market, we asked Nora why customers still reached out to Sculpteo. The answer is pretty stunning; they use professional-grade printers – those printers build items layer by layer as for the home…

  • The Fascination of Coworking - New Study Released

    8 Dec 2014 | 2:42 pm
    The fact that most coworking spaces are somewhat "cool" is probably the reason that most people become exposed to them. But - what is it exactly that has created the fascination with coworking? What do coworking spaces have to do to be seen as attractive? How should one respond to the pull that coworking apparently triggers for conventional companies? Is it conceivable that there could be a successful collaboration between companies and coworking spaces? The German Fraunhofer Institute IAO explored these questions and a number of other issues, which were published in a recent study.
  • Eight reasons why it's worth joining a coworking space

    3 Dec 2014 | 5:04 am
    Coworking is a growing trend. Each year, more and more freelancers decide to share a space with like-minded professionals as a way to avoid work-from-home distractions. However, some freelancers are still skeptics. Renting a desk at a coworking space could mean losing your freedom to work in pajamas and could add an extra cost to your budgets. While these concerns are valid, there are also some key elements to consider when choosing a coworking space over the traditional home office. Here are eight reasons why it's worth it to join a coworking space.
