Organic Startup Communities: A Case Study

September 19, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

TCSW 2022

Coco is hosting a session for Twin Cities Startup Week (TCSW) 2022! Grab your tickets today, and be sure to add our session to your schedule. Coco members may attend our session for free.

Organic Startup Communities: A Case Study

What do you get when a supply chain consultant, AI tech founder, strategic workplace executive, and brand strategist walk into a coworking space? The answer is, a powerful community that provides business and career support, productive connections and resources, and a framework for daily accountability towards growth objectives. Any startup leader will tell you that no success happens in isolation. In this interactive case study, hear from Kyle Coolbroth, CEO of Coco (formerly COCO), a Twin Cities pioneer in creating collaborative workspaces for early-stage companies.

Kyle will lead a panel discussion that explores the first-hand accounts of 2 founders and 2 executives who, in the midst of an increasingly remote world, came together to establish a critical network and accountability model that has helped guide them through everything from raising capital, to hiring talent, to providing the mentorship every business leader needs to thrive. Q&A included.


  • Kelvin Johnson, Jr. | Brevity Inc., Co-founder & CEO
  • Nicholas Garbis | One Model, Inc., VP of People Analytics Strategy
  • Kathy Grunditz | One North, Manger, Brand Strategy
  • Lisa Esberger | Verdethos, Founder

This session will be hosted in the Classroom at our Downtown location.

TCSW attendees are invited to attend Happy Hour and the MN Tech Jobs & Opportunity Fair at Coco on Monday, 9/17 (immediately following our session).
