ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - After four successful years, an Albuquerque co-working space is expanding into Rio Rancho.


Every Wednesday morning, like-minded entrepreneurs come together for 1 Million Cups. It’s just one of the events at FatPipe ABQ, aimed toward encouraging collaboration among small business leaders. To bring them together and help them foster their ideas, they need certain tools, events, and spaces.

"We're not just co-working,” said Lisa Adkins, COO and Director of FatPipe ABQ. “I like to say we're co-working on steroids."

In July, they expect to open their second location in Rio Rancho. It will be in the AMREP Building on Rio Rancho Boulevard.

“Rio Rancho is probably the smartest place that we could've been to first because we're connected,” said Adkins.

Adkins says they are especially excited about having access to a courtyard right outside their windows. They will be able to meet outside while enjoying a beautiful view of the Sandia Mountains.

The expansion will not end here. Adkins says they would like to have co-working spaces across the state, and even in Mexico.

"Three seats in a great little community center in Raton,” said Adkins. “Las Cruces in the future for sure in the new innovation center in arrowhead, we'll definitely be there, and there's talks even moving to Mexico possibly."

They expect to open the Rio Rancho location in July.
