08 Jul 3 Co-Working Spaces Nurturing Miami’s Emerging Tech Community
Miami is on the rise, becoming a respected place to be if you’re a budding or seasoned startup entrepreneur. And many tech leaders agree that no one can succeed in a bubble. Good thing Miami has plenty of spaces to create, from incubators to accelerators to co-working spaces that provide resources, access to key industry people, community and the opportunity to collaborate with other creative types. Check out the co-working spaces we know well and recommend if you’re starting up in the Miami area.
The LAB Miami
Located in an 10,000 square foot artsy warehouse in the Wynwood Arts District, you become one of the “LAB rats” as you immerse yourself in this startup community and take advantage of all the The LAB Miami has to offer. The budding or seasoned entrepreneur gets a lot of everything a co-working space could offer, from classes and workshops to strategy meetings and hackathons to conferences and launch parties. Not only do LAB rats get to create in a bright, cool and spacious facility, but they can connect and collaborate with a like-minded community of technology and social entrepreneurs, as well as investor and service providers. The LAB’s month-to-month “LAB Flex” membership starts at $300 a month, or you can save with a 6 month commitment at $265 a month. thelabmiami.com
