CHICAGO, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – Coalition, a coworking community developer, today announced the launch of the Coalition: Loop coworking space, one of the first communities of its kind dedicated to the energy sector. The official launch event kicks off this evening, bringing together leaders across energy and entrepreneurial communities to celebrate this dynamic new coworking hub.

Located in the heart of the Chicago, Coalition gives entrepreneurs dedicated desk spaces, private offices, and collaborative meeting areas to help them network, promote, and grow their businesses.

The first of two Chicago area locations, Coalition: Loop boasts stunning views of Millennium Park, a wealth of professional resources, and a dynamic membership community, including cleantech innovators like Energy Foundry, Root3 Technologies, and Digital H20.

“We see the launch of Coalition as a crucial step to uniting industry leaders and innovators across Chicago,” said David Rotbard, Co-Founder of Coalition. “With this community and others to come, we want to give small business owners a space they’re proud to take their clients, and a community with a vibrant culture that’ll promote new ideas.”

Co-sponsored by Energy Foundry, this evening’s launch will be celebrated with craft beers and penthouse tours, along with a few words from local entrepreneurs and business leaders.

“Joining Coalition allows us not only to take advantage of this phenomenal location, but to forge a partnership that connects energy innovators,” said Jeremy Adelman, VP at Energy Foundry. “With this launch, we hope to establish a center of gravity for Chicago’s tech startups and a place to promote greater collaboration across the Midwest.”
