The space opened on Jan. 31 with 50 members.

The bright, open space includes private offices, permanent desks and flex desks. It also offers special collaboration programming, mail handling, professional services, advanced IT, discussion groups, salad clubs, social media exchanges, investment pitch days and “other experiences that foster the mixing of ideas to create innovative solutions, while keeping overheads to a minimum, allowing each member to focus on growing their business.”
