We provide innovative physical and virtual infrastructure that freelancers, entrepreneurs, and creative class professionals need to succeed in the 21st century knowledge economy. What does that really mean? We provide a professional yet comfortable workspace for freelancers, entrepreneurs, developers, designers, consultants, coaches, lawyers - anyone who might otherwise be working from home or trying to work from a coffee shop.
The (R)evolution of Work
We are a coworking space, but we ain't your usual coworking space. We believe coworking isn't just about a bunch of people sitting under the same roof. NextSpace was founded on the premise that we are smarter as a group and that by creating not just the space for people to work but also a sense of community an ecology of success develops. As one of our members put it, "My startup is a year ahead on it's development because of the connections and resources available at NextSpace." The Santa Cruz location was the very first and we have several other locations between San Francisco and LA.
Where Everybody Knows Your Name
That's the big picture. For the day to day, it's just really nice to be able to go to a place where you can interact with other people instead of yet another day sitting alone in your spare bedroom. Between our community email lists, happy hours, chit chat friendly kitchen, community mindset and occasional outbursts of wackiness NextSpace is a bit like "Cheers".
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
