Ok, so it’s not actually madness but coworking opportunities are approaching epic proportions in the region! The Urban Hive just announced that they are opening a new location at The Cannery business park in September. Multi-location Hacker Lab is test-driving coworking in Rancho Cordova with two meetups/week at Specialty Cafe while they explore opening a new space with the City of Rancho Cordova. There’s even a coworking meetup group for those of you who want to hang out with others while working at coffee shops. And still on the horizon is the opening of I/O Labs in downtown this summer. I also hear rumors that a space may be opening soon in Folsom at the old Entrepreneurs Campus but I don’t know any deets (do you?). And some rumblings of another midtown spot are hitting the street. For a full list of the open coworking spots in the region, visit StartupSac.
Startup Hustle is back! Applications for Hacker Lab’s 6-week startup bootcamp opened today and there is an informational meeting about the program this Thursday from 5:30-7:00pm at their midtown location. This is a great program for anyone thinking of launching a startup as well as those who have already launched but are in the early stages. Check it out!
