Denise And Lauren's story

Hi, we are Denise and Lauren - it's great to meet you! We are two best friends and business partners launching a start-up called Town Hall Collaborative in Denver, Colorado. We are fierce, motivated, and passionate women who are committed to making a difference in our community and beyond. We met nearly 10 years ago in the food and beverage industry when we worked together running marketing at a brand in Boulder, CO. Since then, we’ve worked side by side at national brands and collaborated on our own ventures. Entrepreneurs at heart, we’ve been working towards this shared dream of opening a community gathering place for the last decade. Our combined experience of 30+ years has brought us to this place and we couldn’t be more prepared, dedicated, and excited to make this dream of ours a reality. We’re creating a multi-use event and gathering place in the heart of the Santa Fe Art District of Denver, Colorado. It will have a maker space for classes and DIY workshops, a bar, food, and event space - all centered around one thing - bringing people together who crave (and let’s face it - need) connection, creativity, and some good old fashioned fun! We've spent the last two years conceptualizing this idea, writing business plans, projecting our expenses and revenue drivers, as well as partnering with industry mentors and our local Small Business Development Center. Now, we've signed a lease on an amazing 7,700 sq. ft. building in a perfect location and we are ready to move into the next phase of launching Town Hall Collaborative!
