Projects and Thank You’s are garnered to build meaningful personal portfolios, like this one. We even have a bus outfitted as a makerspace to span our collaboration and impact across North America with grassroots events and awe-inspiring experiences.
Our agency is a dedicated, personalized service that helps companies complete projects and cocreators get paid. We combine the creativity, energy, and talent of our community with diligent management and support of trusted professionals. We specialize in lean, efficient project completion, leveraging design cycle principles from MIT and IDEO.

Leave a “Thank You”:
1. Request Help (with your project or goal): Put yourself out there. No single person has all the answers; Even Google has limitations. Ask the community for advice, recommendations, feedback, or other help with your creative project or goal. Whether you want to invent a medical device, write a song, or learn to weld, there are people in your community that want to help!
2. Say “Thanks”: Did someone go out of their way to help you with your goal? Return the favor by saying Thanks. Your Thank you will be shared with the person who helped you and the rest of the community so that others can be inspired and celebrate your collaborative success.
3. Pay it Forward: CoCreateX is built on sharing knowledge and resources. You don’t need to be an expert to provide someone with valuable help on their project. You can support people with ideas, feedback, and recommendations. The strength of the community depends on us all sharing our talents and helping out where we can.
A Culture of Gratitude
Think about the last person who helped you with a goal or a particular challenge. Maybe it was a friend who inspired you to start a project, or a neighbor who helped you fix your car. Say Thanks to that person to show your appreciation for their help. Your Thank You will be shared with the person who helped you, and the rest of the CoCreateX community so that others can be inspired and celebrate your collaborative success. Is the person you’re thinking of not on the CoCreateX website yet? No worries! We’ll invite them and they’ll have your Thank You waiting for them when they sign in for the first time. Now you’re co-creating!
The benefits of gratitude are far-reaching. Not only does it feel good to say thank you and to be appreciated, but genuine gratitude leads to positivity that sustains, inspires, and encourages giving which opens doors for a world of possibilities.. Everybody wins!
A History of Creating and Giving Back
Our adventure began around a community of people who had a desire to share resources and connections in order to turn ideas into products, inventions into businesses, and passions into sustainable lifestyles. As a group we have built up resources including a workshop, a lab space, a network of connections and a passionate team. We understand first hand the power of working as part of a community and we want to share that experience with the world. That’s why it is now our mission to empower, celebrate, and sustain helpful and thankful people everywhere.
While we got our start in St. Paul, Minnesota, our community is expanding to new places every day. In fact, we’ve purchased a gigantic Prevost Coach bus, which we’re transforming into a mobile makerspace and CoCreateHQ to spread our mission and help people all over the lower 48 states, inviting them to say Thanks and inspiring healthy, productive, fulfilling lifestyles. CoCreateX is about people, not things – and there are helpful and thankful people everywhere.
