We provide innovative physical and virtual infrastructure that freelancers, entrepreneurs, and creative class professionals need to succeed in the 21st century knowledge economy. In an increasingly disconnected world, NextSpace creates a collaborative community that is revolutionizing the nature of work.
Our business model is simple: NextSpace sells membership in that collaborative community. Our members come from a wide variety of industries: software, design, marketing, legal services, architecture, and engineering, just to name a few. Some are lifelong freelancers, while some have been downsized from bigger companies and are just beginning to venture out on their own. Some telecommute to bigger companies on the other side of the country or the other side of the world. Some are starting growth-minded companies with dreams of a big exit, while some are using their skills simply to earn a living.
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.
