Community has been the core foundational element of coLab since it was first founded in 2011.
We didn’t have a big fancy event space, we didn’t have a professional-looking boardroom, and we didn’t have a nifty new coffee bar.
What we had? Was each other.
coLab started as a small, tight-knit group of independent professionals who were tired of the home office drudgery, distractions, and draining isolation. We saw an opportunity to participate in the amazing experiences that were happening in our local community.
So we banded together to establish a common workspace for creative types who crave social connection.
The growth of our membership has allowed us to acquire more space, add amenities, and transform coLab into a place where creative professionals thrive.
We host hundreds of events in creative new ways to get members involved in forming initiatives and decision-making.
Whether it’s the professional environment that motivates you to be more productive, the ample networking opportunities that lead to your next big move, or just the fact that you actually have a place to meet clients that isn’t a coffee shop, coLab allows you to work more effectively.
Today, we have over 12,000 square feet of space, and we’re home to hundreds of members. coLab alumni have gone on to form companies, become major local job creators, and have serious impact with their game-changing ideas and initiatives.
We’ve upgraded with the addition of Affinity Hall events space, two kitchens, and private offices and meeting rooms.
And while the coLab space has changed, the thing that makes coLab what it is? Has stayed constant.
We’re talking about the community.
The people of coLab are what make this place what it is: A diverse, supportive community of independent professionals who are helping each other to push the boundaries of work. These are just some of the people you’ll encounter in and around the coLab.
