Studio 12 open for innovation
Friday, July 07, 2017
Second floor renovation meant as anchor for collaborative neighborhood for entrepreneurs.
Economic development director Lyle Hevern says the internet and mobile technology have created a world of entrepreneurship from kitchen tables, cars and cafs.
"Several years ago, we hatched a vision to create an entrepreneur neighborhood in vacant second stories of buildings in downtown Estherville," Hevern said to a crowd gathered for Studio 12's ribbon cutting and grand opening.
The former ballroom in the renovated space at 12 South 6th Street in Estherville has been reimagined into a meeting and co-working space with tables, chairs, projector and screen, and a podcast recording studio.
Visitors touring the space found private offices, private and occasional desks, conference, meeting, co-working and collaborative spaces, a kitchenette, and a rooftop deck.
