Let’s start by saying, we are not a coworking space. We are a venue which likes to think out of the box and support our local community. Our members are multi-passionate small business owners most commonly in the creative, artisan and/or wellness fields. Sound like you so far?
We want to support you in a way that fits you best! Check out our member options. If you don’t find one that quite fits your needs, let us know and we can create a custom membership just for you and your business!
Learn in Community
Our members gather the first three Mondays every month for Community Mondays. These are collaborative working days from 10am-5pm. This is your weekly accountability! Bring your work, ideas, thoughts, questions, frustrations, and your to-do list! The first Monday of the month we have a Business Coaching Lunch & Learn from 12-2pm with our resident Business Coach, Lauren Armstrong of Created Future Academy.
Monthly Meet-Ups! Anahata Collaborative is home to the Minneapolis Chapter of the Rising Tide Society (Tuesdays Together), as well as the Minnesota Chapter of Yellow Co! Our Founder, Lara Cornell, is a co-leader for both of these chapters. We highly recommend attending these to support your business learning & to meet other creative small business owners in the Twin Cities and beyond.
In 2019 we will be offering workshops and meet-ups aimed in particular at female artists and artisans (moms especially), but are open to everyone in the creative and wellness fields.
work your way
Our members typically have a home office/studio or work out of a local coworking space, and some are looking for a larger space on a more occasional basis to do the things they can’t do in their current space such as: hosting workshops or classes, facilitating photo shoots and filming in a super flexible space, or making a professional mark by having a space to welcome their clients which WOWS them and really sets the tone of their business.
Our members receive an exclusive discount on hourly venue rental at Anahata Collaborative!
Let the world know who you are
People want to know how support other local female owned businesses, but how are they going to find you if you don’t let them know you’re here?
Our members are listed on our NEW Support Local page.
All memberships include a listing on MAIA Community (a directory of local women owned businesses.
We will also be including stories on our members in our Blog starting in fall of 2019. Let us help you shine!
We give back
We believe very strongly in giving back to our community (YOU). It’s one of our 4 pillars of business. Therefore, in the summer of 2019 we are launching an affiliate program. We give back to YOU 10% of bookings in our venue which you refer (See FAQ for specifics). Put the money toward your own business, buy groceries, pay for your child’s Tae Kwon Do classes, go on an Artist Residency program, or give it to a cause you are passionate about. It’s totally up to you.
Just in case you didn’t think that was enough, we also want to reward you for encouraging your fellow women business owners to join our community! We give back to you 10% of your referral’s monthly membership (See FAQ for specifics).
We know that our members are busy women doing a million things, and that finances might be limited while building your businesses. We are launching our PERKS program which includes free or discounted services/products from other local business which could really help you grow business or at least tame your life just a bit. These perks are exclusive to Anahata Collaborative Members.
