I’m really looking forward to the new tech coworking space named 1871 in the Merchandise Mart.
— 50,000 square feet
— 100 reserved and 220 shared desks
— 22 conference rooms
— three auditorium-sized classrooms hosting a series of workshops
I’m most excited for the classrooms, because…
A major focus of the startup hub will be in the abundance of classes, workshops, lectures and seminars. Hundreds of classes will be provided to empower entrepreneurial members (and many open to the public): taught by leading business-builders, successful entrepreneurs, technologists, and even artists and astrophysicists, Collens says, ranging from the practical to the inspirational.
