Coworking spaces have been powerful and effective tools that working professionals around the nation have taken advantage of, but a new coworking space opening in Houston offers a new approach. The coworking company, Rethink, will open its first offices in Houston and Denver in Spring 2019. Unlike usual coworking offices that have various industries around, Rethink is focuses on real estate professionals. “Our company’s approach is to focus on industry verticals and have people who do the same or similar things occupy the same space,” Rethink president Ken Cope said in the Houston Business Journal. Even though the focus is on the real estate industry, Rethink will not turn away prospective members from other fields.
