Cities like Spokane are the perfect place to breathe life into innovative ideas, and coworking spaces are the perfect place to make those ideas a reality. At least that's what Luke Baumgarten and Benji Wade of Fellow Coworking believe.
In a way, bringing a coworking space to Spokane is innovative in itself. While coworking has found great success in many cities around the world, finding traction in Spokane has been a slower process.
“I think there's a potentially pretty big slice of the market here that we could have access to that would be interested in coworking in general, and Fellow specifically. But because they don't know what coworking is, it's not even on their radar,” Baumgarten said.
Coworking is a global phenomenon reinventing the way individuals work. To simply put it, a coworking space is a place professionals pay to work in. For these professionals- typically freelancers or telecommuters- coworking spaces are an alternative to the basements, couches, or crowded coffee shops with unreliable Wi-Fi they'd otherwise work at.
