I wrote recently in a post for NBC Chicago that coworking spaces were on the rise due to the increase in freelancers and remote workers.

Most people dont know that Mrs. Judd's Games started when my daughter's kindergarten teacher ran into my wife at a school carnival. We were looking at how to brand ourselves in the kids marketplace and the perfect brand just retired from teaching! We loved the idea of taking the thoughtfulness and expertise of the teachers voice to technology in our own games and games for our clients trying to reach families. It goes to show that you always should keep your eyes and ears open as that perfect pivot might be right in front of you, even at a parent teacher conferece!

We're so excited to be moving KBooM! and Mrs. Judd's Games over to 1871 next week. My team is antsy to have more folks to ask for help, bounce ideas off of, and even more excited to overload on Intelligensia coffee. We couldn't be more thrilled to be given this chance to work in such a inspiring office space with so much support from the Chicago tech community.
