We need your help 0

We are thrilled to have recently launched into our 3rd year of coworking and community collaboration here at the Oklahoma City Coworking Collaborative. We believe that this year will be our best year by far. We are planning and hosting even more events and expanding our services aimed at fostering the technical, creative and entrepreneurial communities in Oklahoma City. To accomplish this, we need your help, now.

The okcCoCo is supported exclusively by its members and member businesses. We have been very lucky to have had many generous individuals support our efforts over the last two years. If you are a current or past okcCoCo member, we owe you a great debt. Thank you very much for your support.

How can you help the okcCoCo? We have a number of memberships that provide services that might be of value to you or your business. We have inexpensive memberships such as our $15/month community membership. We have memberships for businesses that allow flexible use of our facility for business meetings, events or offsite work for employees. We also rent out space including our classroom, conference room and social area for all sorts of events. We have hosted marketing seminars, corporate board meetings, professional retreats, conferences, and even high school graduation parties.
We also accept and are very thankful for financial, software or equipment donations brought or sent to the okcCoCo.

Is there a way to help okcCoCo without becoming a member? Yes! We rely heavily on the time and effort people put into creating and running community events that we host at the okcCoCo. We’ve had over twenty professional groups meet monthly here at the okcCoCo since our launch. We’ve hosted dozens of community events. The passion and work of well over 100 members and non-members alike went into making these events come to life. If you are interested in creating an event, building a community or simply sharing your passions with others, we welcome you to come talk to us about how we can help you build something new and awesome.

It would be hard to understate the value of personal referrals, recommendations, and positive reviews of the people who use and attend events at the okcCoCo, whether that be in person via word of mouth or online via social media. Telling friends and colleagues about okcCoCo and our coworking space, our office spaces, our events and our business services is extremely valuable to us. We rely on the voice of the community. Thank you if you have or will share our story.

Why would I help the okcCoCo? okcCoCo is focused on improving the technical, creative and entrepreneurial opportunities, resources and community in Oklahoma City. That can mean a lot of things, but as we see it, it means more jobs, more startup businesses, more events, more educational opportunities, stronger community, more attention from local government to the valuable contributions we make that help create a thriving, growing city and economy.

Looking back at the last two years, we have accomplished more than we ever thought possible, thanks to the contributions of the community. We have built a coworking facility where dozens of people work daily, dozens of businesses share our coworking and meeting space, and ten businesses have private office space. We’ve been able to connect freelance professionals and business with each other as well as with new clients seeking services. Through our events we have helped to promote and foster over 100 startup businesses. We have hosted well over 200 professional and user group meetings.
We have launched new events including BarCamp, Red Dirt RubyConf, Gov20a, Code4aCause, Throw Your Voice, MobileBeta, Red Dirt Javascript. We’ve partnered with organizations like the Greater Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce and i2E to host events focused on entrepreneurship such as OpenBeta, Global entrepreneurship week, and Startup weekend and to help our companies participate in other events such as SXSW, The Entrepreneurs Conference, and Innotech.

Individuals and businesses, we, as a community, have built something special that did not exist here before, and does not exist in many many other cities. If we want this to continue, we will need your help. Please reach out to help us make this our best year yet.
