Since 2011, the coLab has been bringing people together to create a more positive and meaningful work experience — working and living better lives.
The coLab is located in downtown Kelowna, centrally located and close to great amenities like restaurants, shops, library and the beach. This space brings out the best in independent professionals, creatives, and entrepreneurs by providing a focused environment for them to work collaboratively and individually.
The coLab is made up of some of Kelowna’s most expert and gifted developers, designers, technologists, problem-solvers and creative thinkers. Imagine being able to tap into this pool of great resources—all in one spot! Many of our people are actively involved in the community, through groups like Digital Okanagan, OKDG and Okanagan Young Professionals.
Peer-to-peer mentorship is a core aspect of the coLab experience; on any given day if you have a question or need help with a problem, you only need to ask and others will step forward to help and advise.
