Worthington-based lifestyle, community and coworking space COhatch has plans to not just expand across Columbus, but the Midwest. They’ll look to community leaders, non-profits and municipalities to help get the job done with the introduction of a Community Investment Program.

Launched this month, COhatch is awarding at-cost licenses to establish coworking locations in a variety of markets across the Midwest. The new program targets small- to medium-sized markets 30-50 miles outside of major metropolitan areas like Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit and Milwaukee, as well as major urban cores.

“We have had an amazing outpouring of inquiries from in-need municipalities, especially those with declining urban cores,” says COhatch Founder Matt Davis. “This opportunity enables us to give back to communities in very compelling ways and doing it in a manner that is scalable region-wide.”
