Montgomery Chamber Launches Initiative to Nurture Region’s Start Up Community


Montgomery, Ala. – October 22, 2018 – Today the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce launched a new initiative to nurture the River Region’s entrepreneurial ecosystem called Work Together. The Work Together Business Studio and Co-space located at 600 S. Court Street will be more than just a physical space. Starting in 2020, it will also feature dynamic programming and events focused on creating a haven for makers, creatives, small businesses, entrepreneurs, freelancers and the community to connect, innovate, create and learn.  

The Work Together Business Studio and Co-space offers flexible space for working, training and community building that can accommodate up to 100 individuals and includes WIFI and audio-visual resources. Additional smaller spaces inside Work Together provide areas for small group or one-on-one meetings, and it also offers a conference room set-up that can accommodate up to 10 people. 

The Chamber announced the new initiative at InnovateMGM, a half-day event celebrating those who are innovating within traditional and non-traditional businesses, start-ups, and creative ventures. The event served as a taste of the community building that Work Together aims to provide, which goes far beyond the limits of a physical gathering space and seeks to provide meaningful programming that empowers users to achieve their greatest potential.  

“Supporting and strengthening our start up and entrepreneur community is one of our biggest priorities at the Chamber,” explained Montgomery Area Chamber Chairman Willie Durham. “Our mission is to connect people to people and people to resources and this space allows us to do just that. By providing the training and the space for creatives and entrepreneurs to connect, we are enhancing our ability to build community, elevate the quality of life of the region and ensure the prosperity of our business community.”
