9 Reasons You Should Join TARRA
TARRA applications are officially open. As the applications roll in, we are watching the community we always dreamed of come together. From first-year business owners to tenured CEOs, and leaders on the rise, professionals in transitions and everything in between, we are thrilled to welcome all who are looking to level up their work and life.
If you are new here, welcome. If you have been here since our first event in 2016, thank you for sticking with us as we have morphed and transformed into what we are today and what we will be tomorrow.
TARRA is a boutique, flexible office & membership workspace at 9+CO in Denver opening this June. We will have two uniquely designed spaces created to transform the way you connect business, life and community.
If you haven’t applied, we want to personally invite you to join the TARRA Community by applying here. TARRA is so much more than just a place to work. Read on to learn how TARRA can help you thrive.
1. The Spaces
TARRA’s boutique membership workspaces are your WFH away from home. Imagine walking into a space that allows you to feel at ease, inspired and focused at the same time. Think rich colors, beautiful stone counters, luxurious yet functional seating, sculptural light-fixtures , and locally sourced art and vintage accessories.
Both spaces were designed by Oonagh Ryan of Los Angeles-based ORA, furnished by the super start team at Elements and curated with inspiring, gorgeous art and accessories by Kelly Meek of Meek Vintage. Beyond the elegant interior design, the TARRA spaces are packed with amenities to provide you the most optimal work experience. From Zoom Rooms and a Wellness/Mother’s Room, to Privacy Booths and complimentary coffee and tea, TARRA is your space to get it done.
Phase I of the TARRA Campus opens this June. TARRA Work is home to our Community, 20-Hour/Month, and 40-Hour/Month memberships. Phase II, TARRA Office, opens August 2022. This 9,000 square foot HQ will host 33 flexible offices for teams of 1-6 people and open-plan workspaces for our Full-Time members.
We have a limited number of memberships available so make sure to reserve your spot. Submit your application today.
2. The Network
Although our campus is new, The TARRA network has been growing for over seven years.
“A wise client once said: ‘you become the average of the people you hang out with.’ I cannot agree more. I built my business on soulful and inspiring relationships. TARRA attracts the best of the best. We work together to build our community into something that is truly transformative.” — Liz Richards, Top-Producing Sotheby’s Realtor.
When it comes to growing your network, most people imagine rolling up to a happy hour, making small talk, balancing a glass of wine and cheese squares, eyeing the exit and dolling out business cards. At TARRA we do things differently. Not only will our spaces encourage authentic, organic connections but each month we offer a wide range of workshops, events and opportunities to grow your network.
Anti-Networking is TARRA’s signature event series that brings our members together for creative, curious cultural experiences. Leave the business cards at home. This is true community.
3. The Resources
Here are the stats: Women-owned businesses, on average, make 50% less than those owned by men. Only 9% of CEOs in America are women. Less than 2% of women-owned companies make more than $1 million in gross revenue. And only 2% of venture-capital going to US-based women-founded startups TARRA is determined to change the narrative and make resources for women-owned businesses more accessible.
We’re not just talking the talk. We’re walking the walk. We are doing the legwork for you by bringing together some of the best resources in Colorado and beyond.
Our Resource Library (launching this fall) will be packed with information on everything from finances to marketing and more. We are also launching a peer-to-peer mentoring program in 2023 to connect you with other members who are just as passionate about your success as we are.
To bring you the best possible tools and resources, we have a team of dedicated partners who have come alongside us to make your dreams a reality:
- Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce
- Denver Startup Week
- Commons on Champa
- Queer Business Alliance
- Good Business Colorado
- Tattered Cover
- 5280 Magazine
- And more to come!
