Ben Von Drehle is the Co-Founder & CEO of The Root Coworking. After graduating from the University of Mississippi, Ben spent six years in the commercial real estate industry, working with tenants, property owners, and developers in Denver, CO. Ben first learned about coworking after a company named WeWork leased two full floors in the most expensive building in Denver, which happened to be located across the street from Ben’s office. As someone who has an eye for creative office design, and a hatred for low ceilings, fluorescent lighting, and cubicles, Ben immediately fell in love with the concept of coworking, and knew that his hometown of Tulsa lacked quality coworking spaces for a growing population of entrepreneurs and business leaders. Ben’s entrepreneurial drive, real estate expertise, and passion for bringing people together led to the creation of The Root Coworking in October 2019. Today, The Root Coworking has over 25,000 square feet in the East Village of downtown Tulsa, and plan to open more locations in 2022.
