The harsh truth most people don't learn until it's too late is that people aren't enticed to work in a space simply because it's pretty. People need to feel a sense of belonging and community, and that's never going to happen unless you've got the right approach from the start.
Hiring, training, daily operations... these are all things that you'll need to figure out and refine over time. Fortunately, you won't need to start from zero! You can use our existing Employee Manual, printable signage, and more.
When you work with us, we'll help you anticipate the questions you might not even be thinking to ask, so you aren't blindsided by them later.

At the ripe young age of 23, I took a big chunk of my savings and trip to IKEA and, with the help of some amazing people, led the charge to open NYC's first dedicated coworking space.
We had an amazing run. We helped people build amazingly successful businesses, experimented with new kinkds of programs, hosted a ton of Meetups, and made life-long friendships.
I also learned a lot about what it takes to run a successful coworking space... through a whole lot of ups and downs.
You don't need to go through the same trial-and-error that I did.
I know how to help you answer the biggest questions that come up, how to anticipate the critical things that you might easily miss, and generally how to make the process of getting your space up and running as smooth as possible.

Work-from-home entrepreneurs (and damn nice guys) Amit Gupta and Luke Crawford realized that while they liked being able to work from anywhere, they missed the social experience of a traditional office. So they did something simple: every other Thursday, they invited anyone who was interested to join them for a day of casual work and fun among like-minded people.
That simple idea was life-changing to a lot of people, especially me.
I not only saw a chance to get out of my house and befriend some amazing people, I saw a chance to help lots of others make a badly needed transition to a new and better way of working.
It turns out, I wasn't alone.
Lots of people were aching for a new way to connect in real life while learning how to work for themselves. So I found others who were looking for what I was looking for, and before I knew it we were building one of NYC's first ever coworking spaces.
