Start-up COhatch’s new Warren County location will be the first of 10 in the Greater Cincinnati area.
The Columbus-based social enterprise touts itself as a lifestyle concept offering “a new kind of shared work, social, and family space built on community.” Its goal is to create a space aimed at fostering innovation, collaboration and community among entrepreneurs, start-ups and non-profits.
“Most co-working companies focus on work, work, work, whereas we focus on trying to enable you to live the life you want to live,” said COhatch founder and CEO Matt Davis.
COhatch creates a network of co-working spaces that are smaller but located throughout neighborhoods in a city or region, he said. It also creates service opportunities through its mobile community center.

“They’re modern kinds of spaces to use for all parts of your life where it’s way more than just work,” Davis said.
Members also can stay at COhatch’s beach house for between $1,250 to $1,900 for a week.
The new location is slated to open this July at Deerfield Towne Center in Deerfield Twp.
Branded as "COhatch Mason," the Deerfield Twp. location will offer a combination of private offices, dedicated desks, game areas, co-working spaces, meeting rooms, large conference rooms and family-friendly indoor-outdoor event spaces. It also will include a game room, podcast studio and movie theater.
Member services include wi-fi, coffee, wine, water, desks, printing, mail service, hourly admin support services and a receptionist. COhatch also offers free monthly professional development workshops, parties, networking social events and health and wellness coaching.

The meeting and event spaces will be available to the community as well as COhatch members and are suitable for hosting off-site company meetings and celebratory life events, according to company officials.
Coworking starts at $59 per month. There are 37 private offices, which start at $600 a month. Tours of the space begin in June.
The new location will join numerous others already established in Columbus, Springfield, Cleveland and Indianapolis.
Members can access all COhatch resources and spaces at any of its locations throughout the Midwest.
“Our whole model is way more about building a network of things than it is about one location downtown,” Davis said.
