Where is the Minnesota Rising Un/Conference being held on Saturday, November 13 you ask? Well, none other than at CoCo, a coworking and collaborative space located in Lowertown St. Paul. Coco, founded by Don Ball, Kyle Coolbroth, Jeff Heegaard, and Roger Heegaard, is a place "where independent workers, small businesses and corporate workgroups can gather to share ideas, team up on projects and get some work done."
CoCo provides a unique professional atmosphere as opposed to working at home or meeting up at a coffee shop. Instead, CoCo features a lounge area that provides seating, as well as library tables to spread out your work. If you want a semi-private workspace, they have it. If you need a conference room for up to 20 people, CoCo has that too.
Minnesota Rising is grateful for the opportunity to take advantage of this beautiful space! The area is perfect to spread out for breakout sessions and to come together as a large group during our opening and closing sessions. Thanks especially to Don Ball for his leadership with UnSummit and continued support for myriad groups to host their versions of this innovative meeting technology at CoCo. Kudos to you for helping Minnesota rise, Don!
