We're entrepreneurs who love what we do. Join the Coalition.
Our bread and butter is to be a productive workspace for you. Events stay in event areas so you can focus when you want, and network when you want.
Collaboration is a core part of Coalition. Our spaces and events are built to make it easier for entrepreneurs to meet and bounce ideas off of each other.
We host regular events so that you can get even more out Coalition. We’re proudly a MicroOffice company, so you also get access to the business network they’ve built since 2003.
Behind the scenes... and front of house.
Community Manager at CO: Flatiron
"Be undeniably good. No marketing effort or social media buzzword can be a substitute for that."
Lindsay studied Philosophy and Communications at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Originally from Westchester, New York, she explored Europe during a semester abroad and immersed herself in other cultures, and discovered through her travels an interest in entrepreneurship. Since graduation, she became involved in property management and enjoys her role as a manager at Coalition, where she focuses on helping her members to network and collaborate.
Community Manager at CO: Chelsea
"Do. Or do not. There is no try."
In addition to being CO: Chelsea’s Community Manager, Katie is a member of the Marketing Team and helps to manage content on our various social media platforms. She enjoys hosting monthly events in her space and helping her members to get to know each other. Katie has a background in musical theatre, which comes in handy at karaoke, and loves meeting new people. Her ideal evening consists of being at home with a glass of wine, 30 Rock re-runs, and cuddling with her “Insta-celebrity” dogs, @pep_and_lil!
Community Manager at CO: Boston
"A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new."
Samiha studied public relations in college and loves to work with startups because of the passion with which entrepreneurs build their ideas. As manager of Coalition’s first Boston location, she is particularly excited about helping to establish the brand in a new market, and being part of the first coworking space in Downtown Crossing. When she’s not working and networking with entrepreneurs, Samiha enjoys traveling and meeting new people.
Community Manager at CO: Midtown
"The secret to a successful startup is this: look for the people who want to change the world."
Bonnie studied English and Religion at Hunter College. The privilege of interacting with so many motivated entrepreneurs with diverse ideas and passions is the highlight of her role at Coalition. Bonnie enjoys relaxing and exploring the City, and hopes to spend some time traveling abroad in the future.
Community Manager at CO: Energy
"It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen."
Amy studied Environmental Communications and French at the University of Illinois at Ubrana-Campaign. She joined Coalition: Energy to help promote collaboration within the energy and cleantech communities in Chicago, and works hard to keep all her members informed about energy-related events at Coalition and in the greater Chicago community. Amy enjoy museums, staying warm in the winter, and exploring the City and its events in the summer.
Community Manager at CO: Impact
"There’s nothing wrong with staying small. You can do big things with a small team."
After earning his BA in marketing from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, Cooper found his way to Chicago and threw himself into the local startup scene as an entrepreneur. Having experienced the madness and excitement of navigating the world at the helm of a small business, he sought to find a way to have a positive impact on others as they set out to follow their own passions. When he’s not helping his members at Coalition: Impact to change the world for the better, he can be found frantically organizing the Chicago Fringe Festival or playing the drums around town with his band Cellrs.
