Refreshing Winchester: Coworking, Refresh and the Future of Our Awesome Community

Bright Cowork 1.0It is hard to believe that Bright Cowork is now three-and-a-half years old. Or that Refresh Winchester will celebrate its third anniversary in a couple of months.

I’m happy to share that Bright Cowork is hitting another major milestone: we’re moving to the third floor of the Bright Center. When Marilyn Finnemore took me on a tour of the building in December 2008, there’s no way I could have imagined ever moving up there. And now we are. (Another big thank you to Marilyn, who was one of the few who believed in this concept back then).

While the space is really important – and the Bright Center is the perfect building for us – it really is all about the people. Bright Cowork is buzzing every day with some of the greatest people I’ve known and worked with in 20 years, and Refresh is full of the same sorts every first Thursday.

So for this month’s Refresh meetup, we’ll take a look back at what’s happened since this little experiment began, and where we’re headed. If you’re thinking about learning something new, teaching something, bouncing ideas off of a willing audience, starting a new business or project (or improving an old one), or just looking for opportunity and inspiration, you’ll won’t want to miss this one.

We’ll take a tour of Bright Cowork 3.0, with or without the furniture, depending on the internet gods (Comcast) and our ability to move everything up this week. We can even have a few rounds of air hockey (on our newest addition) or some old school video games like Dig Dug.

There’s a lot in store for the future of our community, and you’re a major part of that. So I hope you’ll make it – even if it is the day after the 4th of July festivities.

As always, we’ll meet at Bright Cowork at 6:30pm (July 5th) for pizza and beverages. Bring your favorite beer or soda – one to drink and a few to share.

Around 7, we’ll start the conversation.

After that, we’ll hang like we do.

Hope to see you there! Please be sure to RSVP if you can make it:
