Co-working spaces in the Innovation Quarter of downtown Winston-Salem NC provide a unique mix of individual, group, and community settings to connect and collaborate while also supporting focused work for Wake Forest School of Medicine innovation programs. Jason Kaplan and Margaret Serrato describe how the co-working spaces were conceptualized, designed, and implemented in the historic Bailey Power Plant building to launch and accelerate solutions that improve health and social equity. They profile space configurations and design elements that bring new partners, possible investment, and advanced technology to the table, and facilitate productive connections with local and global innovation communities.
