Success Stories


Asbury Park

Cowerks was founded in 2010 as a flexible shared office space and networking hub for Asbury Park-area technology freelancers and startups.  When Cowerks outgrew its office, it found a new space in Asbury Park’s downtown, but after Hurricane Sandy forced the company to close its doors for 10 days, it was compelled to redirect its moving funds to its operations.  NJCC’s REBUILD New Jersey fund provided Cowerks the working capital it needed to reopen in its new location just months after the storm.

“The loan [from NJCC] got us back on track.  The business is already beginning to grow faster.”
