At first, working from home sounds like a dream come true. Who doesn’t want to work in yoga pants without a commute? Yes, please. Until you realize you can’t remember the last time you showered or spoke to someone that isn’t the baby—or the dog. Coworking spaces offer professional mom-friendly places to work, meet with clients, and build community in metro Denver.
Founder Bryn Carter opened Charley Co. in The Source in 2019 to build a community of women who work alongside each other. The space was designed by a local team of female architects and designers. In addition to shared office resources, the 5,650-square-foot coworking space includes five private offices, one open office, a mother’s nursing room, a library nook, and a vanity area. It also offers in-house salon services, dry-cleaning services, pop-up fitness classes, a refrigerator stocked with healthy food, and a regular speaker series. Plans start at $60 per month.
Mom of four kids and CEO of The Riveter, Amy Nelson, started the RiNo-based coworking spot in July 2019. The 12,000-square-foot space features conference rooms, a mother’s nursing room, desk space, and private offices. Flexible membership packages allow customers to change levels at any point without an annual commitment. Leadership meetings, mediation sessions, and designated mother’s rooms cater to working moms. Plans start at $199 per month; a $19 per month plan is also available which includes access to their workshops and programs.
Gina Schreck knows that it takes a village to be a working mom. So, after 24 years of working from home and raising four kids, she is opening The Village in Centennial. The coworking space, opening on February 20, will house a kids’ playroom, two nursing rooms with chaise lounges, a 2,000-square-foot workout space, and nap rooms. Moms can choose from a private office, two desk areas, or desk space. The space will also feature amenities like grocery delivery, dry cleaning, shoe repair, and a package mailing service. Plans start at $180 per month.
