Did you know YuKonstruct is opening a shared community workspace in Whitehorse ?  We are!

It is called (co)space. We’re thrilled to use this new space as a way to able to help better support our vision to ignite the entrepreneurial spirit, and grow Yukon innovation and business by providing accessible shared space and programming.

(co)space is located downtown, in a separate location from our Makerspace, and will be available to anyone who would like a productive, collaborative and community-driven space in which to do their work as a freelancer, entrepreneur or small business. Similar to YuKonstruct, a membership to (co)space will provide you access to (a new) space while offering amenities such as high speed internet, a productive work area, access to meeting rooms, and most importantly a community of awesome people.

In addition, (co)space will provide members with a wealth of supportive and informative programming and exciting and fun events, made possible with generous funding from the Yukon Government’s Department of Economic Development Department. We are also extremely grateful for the support received from MPIG Holdings, StartUp Canada and a huge army of volunteers who have helped for the past month to get (co)space renovated and ready to launch.

awesome volunteers!

More details will be coming soon!  Please follow the dedicated (co)space Twitter and Facebook pages if you would like to stay up to date.
