Campaign Story

MAxT Makerspace and the Cornucopia Project are turning their shared office space at 49 Vose Farm Rd, Peterborough, NH into a new hub for our community to work, learn and create.

Our Mission—Support the Local Business Ecosystem: Peterborough and the surrounding region have long been a center of arts, culture and industry. The region is now on track to reinvent itself as a center catering to a new, homegrown creative economy. MAxT and Cornucopia’s new offices are located in the Vose Farm business complex where many of the up and coming examples of this trend have also located – Nuttin’ Ordinary, Von Mertens Furniture, SoClean and Parker House Coffee to name a few.

MAxT and Cornucopia have a shared goal of supporting the people in our town and the region who are working on the projects and enterprises that will shape our future – whether it is creative entrepreneurs, innovative artists, or talented local food-based businesses. We’ve started our collaboration with the creation of “The Co” – our Community Cooperative Coworking space at 49 Vose Farm Rd.

Creating an Innovation Center for Our Community: Increasingly, creative entrepreneurs are looking for affordable shared workspaces to start and grow their businesses.

Our vision is to create a flexible working space that will be a hub for local business consultants, solo entrepreneurs, partnerships, larger group projects, workshops and events. We believe that the way to strengthen our local economy is to leverage local resources to support what is already here.

Our space will become that place for our region. To improve upon our large open rooms, smaller meeting rooms, offices and a kitchen, we propose adding the furniture and A/V technology necessary to make The Co the place to be and go for local and regional entrepreneurs.

We are turning to the community to help make our vision a reality. Please help us create an innovative workspace that attracts talent and new businesses that can call Peterborough their home.

    Who is the Co?

    It’s hard to find affordable space and launch a business in our region. It’s harder still to find a place where you can build connections with other business startups, rather then feel isolation. We are your neighbors, creating a better place:

    An educator and business advisor looking for a place to work and connect with new clients.
    An artist looking for space to create and develop her work into a livelihood.
    A team of high school students running a farm operation and developing new food products.
    A video production company looking for a home to grow their business.
    A field organizer for the League of Conservation Voters looking for affordable office space to organize her campaigns.
    A group of 4-H students, learning about robotics.
    A toy designer looking for a place where he can develop new products.
    These are just some of the people who have come through our doors looking for a resource like the one we are creating at The Co. They have set up shop here in the hopes that we can help them learn and grow. It’s an amazing mix of ordinary community members doing extraordinary things, together under one roof. MAxT Makerspace is dedicated to the growth of people like them who are striving to make it in Peterborough.

    They are the reasons we are raising money right now for our coworking and education center.

    …and we’re at 60% of our goal! Woohoo!

    A big thank you to everyone who’s contributed so far, but we still need to get all the way to our goal to make this happen.

    If you haven’t yet, please consider a small gift to get us a little closer to our goal!

    The best way right now support innovation and entrepreneurship in Peterborough is to simply build a home that can support it.
