Rural Co-working


Is there a place for co-working in a rural community?  I have been watching the evolution of co-working in cities and have wondered if a similar model could work in our local community.

I tried a twitter search for rural co-working and joined the Google Coworking Group ...

I found this article on How To Start A Rural Coworking Community.  The article talks about the following steps:

  • Building a community before selecting a space
  • Identify the needs of rural entrepreneurs
  • Seek out diverse professions and entrepreneurs
  • Collaborate with local governments and businesses

The Hatherleigh Community Plan (section 8.11) talks about the idea of a "training centre", but there is "currently no identified investment for this type of facility".

I would love to hear from people with similar ideas.  Please email or tweet me with your thoughts.
