March 2018

Following the successful footsteps of the iWerx co-working space in North Kansas City, designWerx has been launched to provide the same level of business incubation but with a focus on businesses in hands-on efforts like woodworking, metal works and painting.

Opened early in February, the designWerx at 1313 Atlantic St. has already been featured in the online magazine, Startlandnews.
