The Link opened its doors in 2012, aspiring to support the region’s entrepreneurs with collaborative work space, networking events and workshops, and access to mentors.
There was lots of energy and enthusiastic clamor around it in the first year. We built a great network, had some successes and lessons learned, and did a lot to both generate and meet demand. It had the makings of a successful shared work space.
But, the initial spark waned. As interest declined, it gradually became a distraction that didn’t produce enough return on effort or generate desired results.
While the building that housed the Link continues to support small businesses, non-profit organizations and government agencies by providing office spaces and some shared common spaces, the Link concept is no longer alive.
Thank you to all who helped build and launch the Link - it was a great experiment. And now, we are moving on.
