COOKEVILLE – Friends and fans of The Biz Foundry were in attendance Thursday afternoon as the group’s new co-working and entrepreneur center, located in the city’s bustling historic West Side district, was unveiled.

Located at 114 Cedar Ave., the new facility is within walking distance to some of the city’s biggest attractions and is only a half-mile away from Tennessee Tech University, where the group runs several programs.

The new facility offers a mix of private offices and collaborative co-working workspaces, with two private conference areas to seat groups as small as four or as large as 15 people.

The new building features an industrial-meets-modern feel with eclectic touches throughout the facility; including Edison bulb light fixtures, repurposed salvaged barn wood-lined walls, and, of course, the latest technology musts-haves.

The Biz Foundry is a non-profit, 501(c)3 entrepreneur center aimed at helping small business start-ups.
