African American Chamber launches innovation and co-working space
Hub is targeted to African-American entrepreneurs
The African American Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin plans to open a new innovation and co-working space designed for African-American entrepreneurs, which it has named Legacy.
General contractor JCP Construction is currently constructing Legacy in a 4,212-square-foot building at 1920 N. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Milwaukee. Galbraith Carnahan Architects designed the project.
In addition to co-working space for entrepreneurs, the building will house the AACCW’s offices and SHARED, a community commercial kitchen for food entrepreneurs. It is expected to open in July.
“The main focus for having this co-working space, this Legacy, it’s specifically designed as a place for minority entrepreneurs. But you don’t have to be a minority to participate in the co-working space,” said Ossie Kendrix, president of AACCW.
