Special Report: Coworking

Competition is heating up among coworking operators. As established players add locations and new providers set up shop, some shared office companies are working to distinguish their brands by offering specialized amenities for specific industries or clientele. Some have added screening rooms and video-editing facilities to attract media and entertainment clients. A handful of providers are offering shared workspace for women only. And one new operator downtown is building a coworking location tailored specifically to cannabis companies.

County's publicly traded companies by 12% in the last 12 months, but the rest of the local market was shaky. Take a deeper look with the Business Journal's annual report on the area's largest public companies.

Special Report: Supplier Diversity

Ensuring contractor diversity on a major infrastructure project used to be straightforward: Set a goal for the percentage of work that goes to minority-owned or women-owned businesses then find those businesses to encourage them to bid. Now, though, achieving a diverse contract base is a much more roundabout process. Under state law passed in 1996, public agencies are prohibited from showing preferences based on ethnicity or gender in awarding contracts.
