A new concept in office space recently opened in New Milford.
Local businessman Tony Vengrove created Makery Coworking, where he says “makers, creators and entrepreneurs” will be able to rent space for anywhere from a day to a year.
The two-story, 5,000 square-foot space at 20 Bank Street is meant to attract entrepreneurs, freelancers and other creative types who have been working out of their homes but who understand the benefit of being around a diverse group of business people. They might also need a more professional space to meet a client.
The building was outfitted to offer small rooms for private phone conversations, a conference room for large groups, and collections of tables and sofas where collaborative conversations can take place.
Vengrove says the value of coworking is what drives his business model. He wants to turn New Milford into an entrepreneurial hub in Litchfield County, and help attract other startup businesses to the greater New Milford area.
