OUR TEAM

Following the April 12, 2018 incident, where two black entrepreneurs were arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks, three friends conceptualized a space where people from diverse backgrounds could work and socialize. A year in the making, we are working to create a physical coworking location in New York City.
