How will your space stand out?

Just renting out workspace is neither fun nor easy. Fortunately, there's a better way to approach coworking.

Instead of just renting space, you can build a center for empowerment. Doing so is more fulfilling, more fun, and more profitable. We'll help you make it happen.

Hi, I'm Tony. I've been obsessed with coworking since 2007.

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, dedicated myself to building NYC's first dedicated coworking space.

For over 7 years, we had an amazing run. We threw legendary parties, helped people build amazingly successful businesses, and made life-long friendships.

I also learned a lot about what it takes to run a successful coworking space... through an endless parade of successes and failures.

I was a pioneer in this industry, which means you get to learn from me.

I badly want you to learn from my experiences, so you can save yourself some time and energy trying things that have already been tried.

The world needs great, empowered collaborative communities. Let's do everything we can to make that a reality together.

As seen in

It all started in a Man­hattan loft.

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.

I'm Tony Bacigalupo, and I've dedicated my work to helping people build great collaborative communities everywhere.
