The Coven — a coworking network based in the Twin Cities — announced its first foray outside of Minnesota, as well as another location within the state to bring its total number of locations to five. The Coven’s latest locations will be situated in Eau Claire, Wis., and the western Minneapolis suburb of St. Louis Park, Minn.
Both new locations will feature coworking space, as well as private offices and conference rooms. Other features characteristic of The Coven coworking spaces include phone booths; gender-neutral bathrooms; printing and mailing services; inclusive seating; and specially designed spaces for parents and prayer. The network also has locations in St. Paul’s Cathedral Hill neighborhood, as well as two coworking spaces in Minneapolis, in the Eat Street and East Lake areas.
“The Coven was founded on the belief that inclusive spaces empower individuals to thrive and create meaningful change,” said Alex Steinman, co-founder of The Coven. “We are thrilled to bring this vision to Eau Claire and St. Louis Park, further expanding our community of change-makers and providing a supportive home for professionals of all lived experiences.”
The Eau Claire location is a rebrand of CoLab, another coworking brand originally created by The Coven Co-Founder Erinn Farrell. The location will now take on The Coven brand, which emphasizes a strong community feel, inclusive design and belonging.
The network has expanded from its two original locations in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area to its current offering in the span of one year, demonstrating demand for inclusive collaborative spaces in Minnesota and the Midwest as a whole. For those looking to get a firsthand feel of the coworking experience, the network offers day passes and discounted bundles for its Eat Street and St. Paul coworking locations.
Beyond coworking spaces, The Coven also offers online courses for entrepreneurs, leaders, and other professionals, thereby committing to the development of a diverse generation of innovators and changemakers.
