// ABOUT THE CORTEX COGAMING CENTER //
Cortex CoGaming Center (located at Fuquay Coworking) is all about family-friendly “Collaborative Gaming” (CoGaming). We serve families in Fuquay-Varina by providing a safe and alcohol-free environment to play video games, board games, card games, “vintage” games/consoles, meet and hangout with actual video game developers, and learn about the latest tech from local tech enthusiasts.

We’re not just a gaming lounge, and we’re not exactly a social club... we’re a little bit of the best parts of both.

We’re excited to host two drawings from Raleigh, NC native, Bri Johnson of Art by Bri Johnson.

Her family has been huge supporters of Fuquay Coworking from the very beginning, and we’re honored to showcase some of her artwork at the creative space.

You can stop by and admire her works of art just outside of our Multi-Purpose Room here at Fuquay Coworking, anytime between 9am and 5:00pm (“gallery hours.”).

As an official #WCPSS WAKE-LINK site that provides safe and tech-focused study and project space for WCPSS (and Harnett Co. Students), we’re excited to work with Fuquay Transportation, A Local and Family Owned Car Service to make access to technology easier for kids in our community.

In fact, any students that arrive before 4pm on Fridays to take advantage of the WAKE-LINK Program at Fuquay Coworking, will receive complimentary access to Cortex CoGaming Center after 6pm.

Bottom-line: Put in at least 2 hours into your studies or projects, and we’ll let you stay to play games from 6pm to 10pm, FREE!

The Fuquay-Varina Startup Challenge is a (4) week startup development program designed to support and nurture aspiring entrepreneurs at the middle and high school levels, and is a collaboration between Fuquay Coworking, Empowered Ideas, and the Fuquay Varina Middle School (FVMS) and Fuquay-Varina High School (FVHS). The initiative is a collaboration between local businesses, schools, nonprofits, and young leaders in the community — and is supported by a grant from the office of Tamara Barringer (NC Senate, District 17) through the Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce.

R.I.S.E. (Resilient & Innovative Student Entrepreneurs) is a program developed by Empowered Ideas and Fuquay Coworking of Fuquay-Varina, NC, and is designed to support and nurture aspiring (and existing) entrepreneurs at the middle and high school levels. Originally developed to assist Youth Prevention Clubs across the country addressing substance abuse/misuse prevention, suicide prevention, and anti-bullying initiatives – it has since grown to support youth leaders venturing into nonprofit and entrepreneurial projects. The program consists of seminars, unique youth-focused events, and strategic planning workshops.
