Jennie Nevin founded Green Spaces™ -- the nation's first green coworking space -- in Brooklyn, NY, in 2008. Jennie was inspired to create Green Spaces after she left a career at Merrill Lynch and often dropped in to coffee shops to work.
Jennie dreamed of a place for people to share work space and make valuable connections to help make the daunting task of launching a business much easier. A passionate environmentalist, Jennie envisioned a community of other like-minded entrepreneurs who wanted to make the world a better place. Word quickly spread and so Jennie found a nearly empty warehouse in Brooklyn and helped fill the place up.
In 2009, Green Spaces launched in Denver and Manhattan. The Manhattan location is now the Impact Hub New York. Stop by and visit if you are ever in Soho. The Denver Green Spaces has now doubled in size and boasts more than 200 members who make up our incredibly talented membership!
Come experience our amazing community yourself. We offer open houses so you can try us out for free one day each month, plus free day passes.
