MISSION

Our goal is to build an entrepreneurial community and co-working space to support solutions for a Lehigh Valley that works for all.

BE PRODUCTIVE

We welcome all members of the Lehigh Valley to come and explore the possibilities of our co-working space. We are open from 9:00 am to  5:00pm on weekdays. We are a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) spot, so bring your laptop and any other gadgets you think you might need.  We can’t wait to see you and hope you bring an open mind to meet and network with passionate entrepreneurs that are working across all sectors of the community for a better Lehigh Valley.

LIKE-MINDED INDIVIDUALS

We will be hosting some informative, insightful events in a relaxed, yet    up-beat atmosphere throughout the year. Most of our events will include entrepreneurs, groups, and various members of the Lehigh Valley community who are actively trying to create social change.

INSIGHTFUL OPPORTUNITIES

We are the steward of ShareLV, a database created by the Urban Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank. We will be mapping all of the nonprofits (over 1,200), foundations (120+), faith organizations (450+) and other social enterprises in the Lehigh Valley to better understand who is doing what, where there are gaps and overlaps in activity and how we can draw synergies from the organizations. We are also working closely with local universities, foundations, government agencies, nonprofits and others to explore how we can better share data in our community and build capacity for individuals to understand and use this data. Stay tuned to updates on this.

INNOVATION AND IDEAS

Though we are registered as a non-profit in Pennsylvania, our long-term goal is to become a member of the global Impact Hub network. Impact Hubs are part innovation lab, part business incubator, and part community center. The concept started in London in 2005 and there are now over 80 Impact Hubs around the world.
