Mina Collective opens co-working space for women

The Mina Company, a marketing agency based in northern Colorado, is launching a new women-focused community, The Mina Collective.

According to a press release, the co-working space and business development group for Northern Colorado women entrepreneurs was created to scale their businesses by providing resources and a community of like-minded women entrepreneurs who will support them in their future growth.

A co-working space is being built and the Mina team has launched a women-focused mastermind group called The Club, where local female founders and directors can collaborate, learn and grow each other’s businesses. Each member of The Club will be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement to keep group conversations confidential, and each cohort will span a range of industries.

Owner Erica Vander Sande said in the press release that the new development offers a number of exciting opportunities for women to learn and achieve new goals in their endeavors in the heart of Fort Collins.

It is currently accepting registrations. The co-working space will open in spring.
