By Etta Meyer | September 23, 2019 | Lifestyle

Aspen has not quite caught up with its larger cosmopolitan peers in terms of the sharing economy—particularly when considering the explosion of coworking spaces across the country over the past several years. Multiple attempts to launch shared desk offerings in town (including murmurs of coworking giant WeWork) have struggled to get off the ground. While entrepreneurs continue to tinker with the model in terms of location, amenities and memberships, visiting and local professionals alike are waiting with baited laptops. Below, see where industrious Aspenites are dialing in.
