This is a group for anyone interested in seeing a co-working space come to the Minocqua area. Coworking is a style of work that enables freelancers, entrepreneurs, remote workers and other independent professionals to work in a shared, communal setting. We think it's time for the Minocqua area to have a hip, progressive space for people to work, share ideas and engage with each other.

This could even be an interesting option for the weekend vacationer who may occasionally need a place to conduct business (so they don't have to stay home and spoil the weekend for the rest of the family).
This group is about building a community of folks interested in seeing this come to life. Initial gatherings (location in Minocqua TBD) will be centered around figuring out how to gauge and build interest within the community for this concept. Hopefully, as we learn there's enough interest, we'll shift attention to working together to figure out how to make the right contacts, find the space, the funding and do all of the other things needed to make this a reality. Throughout this process, we'll look to bring in other tools (web site, Slack, etc.) to help us all collaborate from a distance. You can think of this group as "building the club before we build the clubhouse."
