Aurora Cuts Ribbon Friday (Jan. 24) For ‘Thrive’ — Collaboration Center for Nonprofits, Entrepreneurs
The city of Aurora will launch a new hub for non-profits, social innovators and entrepreneurs this week.
The Aurora Thrive Collaboration Center will officially open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24, 2020.
Located at 712 S. River St., TCC is housed in the newly renovated facility that once served as the headquarters of the Fox Valley Park District.
“Research has proven that collaboration leads to significant growth in new and existing businesses,” said Aurora Mayor Richard C. Irvin. “The city of Aurora seeks to support our local nonprofits and social entrepreneurs in achieving such growth by establishing a location that fosters sharing, caring and connection.”
TCC will provide a place and opportunities for organizations and entrepreneurs to enhance their operation through low-cost rental spaces and various curated workshops and training.
Members can choose from a wide range of options for individual or shared office space, including renting a meeting room or obtaining a day-pass for temporary space.
Workshops will be designed to provide in-depth learning opportunities in all aspects of organizational and business functioning, including marketing and promotion, strategic planning, fundraising and investment seeking and succession planning.
During the public ribbon-cutting ceremony, interested participants can speak with a representative about membership and tour the center.
