“The energy at Green Spaces is so inspiring,” Seventh Generation co-founder Jeffrey Hollender said after a visit. “Spend an afternoon with them and you’ll witness how this coworking space is creating real, innovative systems to change for our country’s new economy."
Green Spaces started in 2008 in Brooklyn, NY as the nation’s first green coworking space. In 2009, Green Spaces opened in Denver and Manhattan. Green Spaces has been listed as the top 10 most inspiring work spaces in Dwell Magazine as well as the top 17 co-working spaces in Inc Magazine. Since inception, Green Spaces has had over 1500 socially conscious members call it home.
In 2014, Green Spaces merged the NY location with the ImpactHub and the Denver location has grown to 12,500 square feet with leading green partnerships including ZipCar, Certifiably Green Denver, and Eden Oaks Design Woodware. 2016 is set to be an exciting year filled with even more green partnerships and international coworking connections.
With the support of Denver’s amazing community over the years and our awesome members, we are excited to have more than doubled our space and community in 2015.
Founder - Jennie Nevin - Jennie founded Green Spaces in Brooklyn, NY in 2008. Prior to Green Spaces, she worked at Merrill Lynch as a Senior Investment Specialist in NYC after receiving her MBA at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota with an emphasis in New Ventures. Jennie launched Green Leaders in 2006 to bring together the emerging green leaders in New York City including Founders and Executives of Treehugger, African Rainforest Alliance, Charity Water and Goldman Sachs. Through this, the idea for Green Spaces emerged and quickly gained attention with a six page color article in the NY Post in 2008. Jennie loves living in Colorado and spending time in the mountains with her husband Ward and their two dogs Athena and Hobbes.
Coworking Space Manager - Melissa Walford - Melissa is working to make her mark within the environmental arena, mainly in water conservation and education. She has started the Water Series here at Green Spaces to spread awareness about water issues in the west! She is a native Floridian but moved away, to Indiana then Alabama then finally landed in Colorado, to find relief from the heat and humidity as quickly as possible. In her spare time she enjoys Olympic Weightlifting and baking/cooking; a wonderful combination.
Community & Outreach - Megan Holcomb - Megan arrived in Denver after a year with the EPA, Office of Research and Development in Washington D.C.. Transitioning from government- and academia-based water quality and climate change research, she is currently digging into the vibrant entrepreneur and permaculture communities along the Front Range. She gets worked up about things like water and food security, education reform, and Megan has an affinity for riding bikes across countries, living large in tiny spaces, and salsa - the food and the dance.
