Last Friday, an incubator and coworking space for women only launched in downtown Dallas called The Kaleidoscope for Her.
The space will host events and courses for women, including one-month, two-month, and four-month programs to help them test their business ideas, get them off the ground, and grow. Depending on which option you select, membership is $150-350 per month.
According to founder Tilde Guajardo, the main difference from a traditional coworking space for both genders is that The Kaleidoscope for Her is built to be more collaborative.
“Studies have shown women are often more collaborative than men and more likely to share their voice when men are not part of the conversation,” she says. “We are not anti-men by any means, but creating a ‘safe’ and ‘non-competitive’ space for women to feel free to share is essential to maintaining an open and honest dialogue between our members.”
The Kaleidoscope for Her isn’t the only coworking space for women; it joins a handful of others, including In Good Company (NYC), The Hive (Philadelphia), Posh Coworking (Austin), and Hera Hub (multiple locations). In their eyes, a women’s-only environment can be more supportive, making it easier to find mentors and resources that some women need, like workshops on building confidence.
The Kaleidoscope for Her is a collaboration between White Space and Womanars, an organization that aims to inspire, educate, and connect women. You can submit your application here.
As far as I know, no one has yet created a similar space for men.
