On November 14th, the Brooklyn Venture Community will be holding an event called, “The Brooklyn Startup Scene: Brooklyn CoWorking Spaces & Their Entrepreneurs.” The Brooklyn Venture Community is a meetup group with over 250 Brooklyn-based entrepreneurial and freelance members that serves as a support and platform for the Brooklyn tech community. At the event tomorrow, founders or managers of co-working spaces throughout Brooklyn representing various entrepreneurial communities and neighborhoods, will each give a brief presentation. The presenters will include:
1. Bat Haus CoWorking (Bushwick) – Bat Haus is a work community founded on openness, fun, and a respect for peers. It operates like a clubhouse. Every member helps make decisions about how the space is operated. Knowledge and know-how adds to the a collective pool (meaning that while you do your own work, you have neighbors who are more than happy to share some advice, a little hands-on help, or, if nothing else, conversation and a cup of joe when time allows it). Bat Haus believes that openness and the sharing of resources far outweigh the alternatives.
2. Dumbo Startup Lab (Dumbo) - The DUMBO Startup Lab is a community hub for entrepreneurs, designers and innovators focused on tech & web development providing cowork space, host classes and events in a beautiful 2,300 sq. ft. corner loft in Dumbo.
3. The Yard (Williamsburg) – Private work suites in Williamsburg (overlooking McCarren Park) designed to inspire creativity, collaborations and connections.
5. Brooklyn Creative League (Park Slope/BoCoCa) – Brooklyn Creative League was founded to give independent professionals, small-shop companies, and nonprofits the tools they need to get their work done: affordable, green, shared workspace and a community of professional colleagues — someplace to meet with clients, host a conference call, and make a pitch
