Gangplank Tucson, a collaborative work-space built around sharing ideas and helping others, re-opened on Wednesday night at a new location downtown at 100 N. Stone Ave.
Gangplank is a place in which entrepreneurs can engage with others in the community, seeking “ to help drive economic and community development, entrepreneurship and civic engagement,” according to Gangplank Tucson’s website.
When asked about the move to downtown, Aaron Eden, director of Gangplank Tucson said “it was to be closer to the city.
Eden said that Gangplank Tucson wants to “foster innovation by connecting people.”
Dominic Lin, host of Startup Tucson’s Startup Drinks, said of Gangplank, “It’s huge…it’s priceless for the community. Lin continued, “Nothing beats a face to face meeting, so much synergy can come out of the impromptu meeting of minds.”
The director of Gangplank Tucson said that users “pay with karma instead of cash.” Eden further explained this philosophy by saying, “it all boils down to people healing each other and learning from each other.”
