ActivSpaces is a physical environment that combines the attributes of a shared office, business incubator, classroom, dynamic public space and a members club. If you need a place to work, a place to meet, a place to call your own and interact with interesting and inspiring people, then ActivSpaces is for you.

We are a vibrant community of entrepreneurs and innovators who benefit by learning from one another.

What kind of people work at ActivSpaces?
Our community is comprised of designers, software developers, artists, entrepreneurs, journalists, community leaders, freelancers and more. If you can work from anywhere, you can work from ActivSpaces.

Do you provide computers or monitors?
No, you must bring your own computer. We provide a desk, chair, internet, and power for your workstation, along with many other benefits. Some part-time members have external LCD monitors which may be available for use. If you’re interested in a monitor, ask us. We might be able to help coordinate a monitor sharing arrangement.

Can I bring my clients/customers into ActivSpaces?
Absolutely. Having a professional place to hold meetings is one of the big advantages of coworking at ActivSpaces.

Do you require members to sign NDAs?
ActivSpaces is a community of trust. The more open you are, the more you can get out of this community. Ideas don’t get stolen here, they get nurtured and grown. That said, if you work in a field where your employer or partners are concerned about confidential information being shared, ActivSpaces might not be the best fit.

I’m a company looking for a freelancer. Can you help?
Maybe. ActivSpaces isn’t a recruitment office. ActivSpaces is a place where people come to do work, not get work. That is an important aspect to our culture. If you’re interested in meeting any of the talent who works at ActivSpaces, you are welcome to participate in any of our public events and spend time with members. We ask that you participate, though, not show up to pitch work or opportunities. We’d never stand between a member and a good opportunity, but we also want people to feel comfortable in their work environment.

I’m interested in coworking at ActivSpaces. How do I get started?
Membership is available at no cost. You have the option of full-time, part-time or occasional access to the space, depending on your needs. The only requirement for membership is that applicants have an active project in the works. New members are selected by pitching their ideas to the group. The community then decides to grant access based on the strength and potential of an individual’s idea. Thereafter, members must be able to demonstrate progress on their work. The goal here is to keep the energy and participation at a high level.

To apply for membership, contact us and we’ll respond within 24hrs.
