The Factory in Grand Junction plans to join in a celebration of International Coworking Day set for Aug. 9 by offering free use of the facilities, tours and a drawing.

“Factory would like to thank the community for their support of our coworking space. We are thankful to be a part of the Grand Junction community. On International Coworking Day, and every day, we celebrate the spirit of collaboration and community that is the essence of what coworking is,” said Julia Sundstrom, community manager at the Factory.

International Coworking Day celebrates coworking across the world — not only the spaces people share to work, but also the collaborations that develop when people work together.

Free-lance and remote workers often use coworking spaces, as do startup businesses and small companies.

People can drop in the Factory, located at 750 Main St., and work there for free on International Coworking Day by logging on to https://members.factorycoworking.com/join, selecting drop-in pass under memberships and using the code “BEINPROXIMITY.”

The Factory also will offer tours and accept entries for a drawing in which the winner will receive a month of free coworking.

Josh Hudnall and Brian Watson, co-founders of the Launch West initiative in the Grand Valley, opened the Factory in December 2016. The facility offers a place where workers and entrepreneurs can work, meet with clients and take advantage of video conferencing equipment and high-speed Internet access. The Factory also offers a community of developers, designers and tech entrepreneurs.

Members of the Factory also have access to the Proximity Space network of 200 coworking spaces around the world. The Montrose-based company offers hardware and software to manage coworking spaces. The network includes spaces in Fruita,  Montrose and Ridgway.
