We are excited to announce NextSpace, the pioneer in coworking and shared-space has partnered with the San Jose Silicon Valley Chamber of Commerce to support entrepreneurs, small businesses and startups in downtown San Jose.
Today, Nextspace CEO Kurt Grutzmacher and myself are publicly announcing the availability of offices and open-configured workspaces in its newest space – NextSpace Silicon Valley at The SJSV Chamber – a 7,000 square-foot, full floor coworking space at the Chamber building at the corner of Market and E Santa Clara Street. A formal opening will occur on October 1, but founding members have already begun filling the space.
As an organization that is focused on fostering economic prosperity as our primary mission, this partnership allows the Chamber to offer small businesses and local entrepreneurs a new platform for growth and greater success. As collaborative workspaces become more commonplace, the Chamber’s partnership with NextSpace is a natural opportunity for us to support and promote the innovation economy in our community, especially in downtown San Jose.
Originally opening their doors in 2008 in Santa Cruz, it took NextSpace less than six months to reach capacity. The NextSpace San Jose space, opened in 2011 at 2nd Street, reached capacity in the fall of 2011, warranting the need for a second location just up the street.
The NextSpace Silicon Valley at The SJSV Chamber joins the company’s eight other locations in California and Chicago and is the first to share space with a local chamber of commerce. The new space will offer offices that fit two-to-eight people, dedicated workstations and open café seating along with a kitchen, multiple conference rooms and a large event center.
For a free day-pass, information regarding founding memberships, to explore the space and book or reserve workstations, meeting room and or event space, email firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be an official Open House coming in October, date to be determined. Stay tuned for additional information regarding this partnership and benefits coming to you, our Chamber members.
