Washington, D.C. (May 2, 2013) - Today the Alliance launched the Alliance Coworking Network, which connects coworking spaces through the country that have partnered with the Alliance to host Alliance members. Developers can locate coworking spaces in their area at (http://devsbuild.it/coworking) and in many cases receive a discount on the space based on their Alliance membership. The Alliance Coworking Network is comprised of 71 coworking spaces across 32 states.
“The coworking movement provides opportunities for developers to forge connections in a pursuit that can often be very solitary,” said Jon Potter, Application Developers Alliance President, “With the Alliance Coworking Network, we will facilitate developers locating work environments that suit their needs so that they can do their best work. ”
“We believe that startups are the ‘bread and butter’ of innovation," said Nancy Gonzalez, [xxx] of SoTechie in New York City, "Our mission is to connect the makers behind these startups with the ideas and creativity to drive their success. We hope to be a part of this process by offering resources and an environment that is conducive to achieving milestones ahead.”
“Coworking environments are affordable and cooler than your traditional office space!” said Kathryn Christiansen of myBusinessBar in Salt Lake City, “They provide a flexible mix of workspace options that cater to the sole entrepreneur or mobile worker. These Coworking communities increase your network and connections made with other members offer valuable outside perspective for your ideas. Individuals and small business owners increase their productivity from working together rather than alone.”
The Alliance Coworking Network will continue to expand in the coming months. Developers in the Coworking Network will have opportunities like hands-on access to devices provided by Alliance members for testing purposes.
