FORT COLLINS — Business incubator EnConnect Holding LLC, doing business as FVC Americas, has leased space at 242 Linden St. in Fort Collins, formerly occupied by Denver-based Galvanize.
FVC Mesh will be the brand name of the co-working spaces, and the building will be called Mesh Fort Collins.
Galvanize announced in late November that it would be closing its Fort Collins campus, and Fort Collins-based FVC Americas took the space over Jan. 1.
Entrepreneurs who established an agreement in 2016 to rent coworking space will have the option to renew their agreements with FVC Americas at the same standard rate during the transition, said Denny Otsuga, president of FVCA. The company is a subsidiary of Future Venture Capital Co. Ltd., a venture-capital firm based in Japan.
“The name ‘Mesh’ reflects our intention to create a tight-knit community where multiple threads of connections can gather and form into a synergistic network that has strength, function and purpose. FVCA aims to develop a regional network in Colorado that will connect the venture communities here,” Otsuga said.
Josh Birks, city of Fort Collins’ economic health director, said the city is excited to hear that 242 Linden St. will continue operations as a coworking technology hub.
“Our startup community benefits greatly from the culture and networks that have formed here, and will now continue to grow with guidance and support from FVC Americas,” Birks said.
