Coworking has been in the media a lot over the course of the last two years or so. The headlines usually explains how young college graduates are getting out of their bunk beds, taking a Lyft, and setting up their laptop at a coworking space. The article might also be a write up about an Uber for car washes is working at a coworking space where the Uber for Ice Cream was founded. They are good stories and we can just assume they represent some piece of reality, but it distorts who really coworks in the coworking spaces across Denver and at Creative Density. We want to bring some clarity to it all.
