Last summer, the team at Work-Bench in Union Square was kind enough to give me space to work out of it. We did a great SaaStr event on How to Hire a Great VP of Product there with the Greenhouse.io founders, as well as another event on How to Hire a Great VP of Sales offsite (both below).
It’s a pretty awesome 32,000 square ft space just for enterprise start-ups with a great speaker line-up and also help meeting with Fortune 500 customers. They don’t take equity and just charge normal-ish co-working rates.
If you need a New York office for a year or so — I’d apply and do it. I loved working there and the cohort of start-ups I worked with there was terrific.
Their update and application process below.
