Meet the Team
Let's get work done together!
At CoLab, we strive to cultivate community through meaningful work. Whether you just have an idea or a fully-functioning business, we're here to support you along the way. We offer space and resources for startups and entrepreneurs and are active in the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Chippewa Valley.
In April of 2019, Pablo Group opened CoLab in our old location at 312 S Barstow St.
That office was the original launch pad for Jamf Software. When CoLab opened, it was intended to fill a gap identified for startups in the Chippewa Valley- a low-risk, low-cost option to try out your business idea. By providing short-term membership-based access to a fully-furnished office space, startups do not have to worry about the operational costs of running a brick-and-mortar storefront, but still get all the benefits of having their own professional office.
In June of 2022, we expanded and relocated our space to Barstow Commons, located at 131 S Barstow St. This new location provides us with more space, new amenities such as our Wellness Room and Phone Booths, and private offices for our growing teams.
Now with more than 40 businesses and 100 members and growing, our coworking community is made up of entrepreneurs, startups, nonprofits, remote workers, freelancers, students, and more!
In mid-2024, we are moving one final time to the current Antique Emporium building on the corner of South Barstow and Main Street. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay in the loop on the next phase of CoLab!
