Green Spaces is an all-inclusive work space to launch your company and connect with other like minded members of the community. Located in the Denver RiNo Arts District, Green Spaces is a beautiful 12,500 square foot solar powered work and event space.  As a space for our members, our events are now only brought to you by Green Spaces Members.  Many of our events are also member only to strengthen our community and our knowledge within our community.  Please check out our events calendar to learn more.  If you are interested in joining our community of socially conscious, green and entrepreneurial individuals, you are welcome to join as a clubhouse member.  

“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."  

BACKGROUND

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 coworking spaces in Inc Magazine.  Since inception, Green Spaces has had over 1000 socially conscious members call it home.

Recently, 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, Clean Energy Collective and Eden Oaks Design Woodware.

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.  

THE TEAM

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. 

Host - 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 pursuing opportunities for more hands-on applications of environmental science in watershed restoration, water and food security, and permaculture design. Megan has an affinity for riding bikes across countries, living large in tiny spaces, and salsa - the food and the dance.

Host - 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. 

Blogger - James Cody - James was part of the first class of interns that worked at Green Spaces during the summer of 2014. After graduating in May with a focus on environmental justice, he moved to Denver and has rejoined the GS team as a host. When James is out of the office you can find him hiking 14ers, snowboarding that sweet sweet powder, rock climbing, or at the yoga studio doing handstands.
