He Was Franchising Coworking Space Before Coworking Was Cool
About 16 years ago, Mark Hemmeter decided to take a gamble on a new business venture – franchising co-working and shared office space. Back then, an upstart like WeWork didn’t exist.
But Hemmeter figured there might be interest after he tried to work from home with family members hovering around and found it too distracting.
“None of us like it,” he said.
Hemmeter moved out of his home office and into shared space. He liked it so much, he launched his own.
He was no stranger to risk. After all, he and his family had been in the casino business. In the early 1990s, they built Bullwhackers Casino in Black Hawk, Colorado, and made a run at other deals.
