TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

Watch for upcoming dates and topics

 

Are you searching for wisdom from someone who has already “been there”? Perhaps you have an issue or idea that could benefit from discussion and “fleshing out” by a group of encouraging minds? Or maybe there is a topic that you simply want to know more about … That’s the premise behind Collaborative Conversations. Join us @ The Commons for what we promise will be stimulating conversations.

(tentatively) once a month - 4:30-6 pm

(We'll get the word out)

Close your laptop, remove your earbuds and join your fellow Common’rs for a happy hour, or so. The Commons will host a casual gathering for our members, we shoot for  one Friday of each month from 4:30-6pm. Clearly, that is not written in stone, so stay tuned and Cheers! We look forward to enjoying your company.

See a happening that interests you? Give us a call for specific dates and times. As it turns out, Friday Happy Hours--- not always on Friday...

Unless otherwise specified, all the listed events are held at our Excelsior Flagship workplace

A LOOK BACK... AS WE ALL LOOK FORWARD

What a great time we had at The Commons! Check out the article and watch the video from The Lake Minnetonka Patch. Thank You, Patch! And LiquidSpace!

 

LiquidSpace, a California tech company, came to The Commons WP in Excelsior for some face time, brainstorming and—yes—a little fun.

 

Posted by Jay Corn (Editor), July 18, 2013 at 11:55 am

 

Mark Gilbreath and his company LiquidSpace usually operate out of Silicon Valley, but the tech company is calling Lake Minnetonka home this week while working out of a "pop-up headquarters" in Excelsior.

 

The Commons WP has been a partner of LiquidSpace since the Lake Minnetonka co-working space opened about a year ago.

 

"The firm has several e-motes based in the Twin Cities area who regularly co-work with us," Peggy Stefan, one of The Commons WP owners, said. "The rest of the company, from California and other parts of the country, have converged here for their annual meeting. It has been a great example of the types if things we can have, and do have, going on at The Commons."
