Co-working space will host two years of special events

CoCo Minneapolis, a co-working hub for entrepreneurs and freelancers, will host the Google for Entrepreneurs program — two years of events focused on technology and startups.

The program kicked off yesterday at CoCo's downtown location in the Grain Exchange building with an all-day conference. 

"This partnership with Google will allow us to continue to expand our mission of creating a robust community of individuals pursuing the work of their dreams," said CoCo co-founder Kyle Coolbroth, in a prepared statement.

The Google for Entrepreneurs program will feature several events, including Startup Weekend Twin Cities, one-day and multi-day conferences, social and networking events and classes, including online programs people can participate in remotely using Google+ Hangouts.
