Local entrepreneurs Nathan Troxel and Lee Tengum have opened 1710 Workspace in downtown Cranbrook. Here, freelancers and other self-employed professionals can find a quiet, comfy place to work with access to computers, high-speed Wi-Fi and fresh coffee, brewed from the fanciest espresso machine in town. A conference room and foosball table are available as well. According to Troxel, the idea is to provide a common space for entrepreneurs and creatives to get work done. Monthly rates, punch cards and drop-in prices are available, with 24/7 access provided to those who rent a desk permanently; Kootenay Rockies Innovation Council has taken advantage of this feature.
