Whether this is your first time experiencing the adrenaline rush of a new idea or you’re a seasoned entrepreneur looking for a unique environment to build and grow your idea, there is a desk with your name on it on our shared working space.

Our shared space is designed with you, the entrepreneur at the earliest stages of the start-up growth cycle, in mind. We understand that at this point in your journey you’re still testing your concepts and exploring how you will enter the market. You may not even have any clients yet. That’s ok.

Our desks are heavily subsidized to help tech and social entrepreneurs just like you build their company to the point where they need more space and private office rooms.

Oh, and did we mention that you’ll be in good company too! This is a unique opportunity to connect with like-minded entrepreneurs also striving to grow their business.

What’s the catch?

There isn’t one. However, to help us facilitate a welcoming, community focused space where organizations can collaborate and grow their ideas, we ask that individuals in the space meet the following criteria: 

  • Be a tech-enabled company* or social enterprise whose client base is outside of the shared space

  • Be a paid Accelerate Okanagan member

  • Be looking for less than 8 desks. We just don’t have rooms for larger team. But don’t despair. If you need more room, check out the Profile, Okanagan coLab or see the list below for Okanagan shared and co-working spaces outside of Kelowna.

If that sounds like you, apply today!

That Doesn’t Sound Like a Fit. What Are My Other Options?

Not a fit? Don’t worry. You have lots of options.  

The Profile on the 5th Floor

If your business is at a later stage in the start-up growth cycle (for example, you are having lots of private meetings and need space for more team members or you sell services to businesses in our shared space) but you really, really, REALLY want to be in this awesome new building (I mean who wouldn’t, right?), you can.

The Profile has phenomenal co-working space available on the 5th floor. Like Accelerate Okanagan, the profile offers an open floor plan with shared and dedicated desks. However, unlike us, the Profile also offer private offices that fit 2-8 people.  If you are a consultant or service provider, this space is exactly what you need to fuel your creativity and your business forward.

The Okanagan coLab

The Okanagan coLab is a coworking space in the heart of downtown Kelowna that is home to over 100 members. Ideal for freelancers and small teams, the coLab offers all the standard amenities of a modern office, plus a fun, creative workplace culture.

Individual and team memberships are available, with flexible part-time and full-time options making it easy to run meetings, host workshops and events, and get work done.

But coLab's greatest resource (aside from its miracle-working coffee) is its people — a diverse, talented group of rabble-rousers who are always up to something big. coLab's member success stories include Yeti Farm, Vinstream, Motivation Engine, and eKanary.

Check out the coLab at http://okcolab.com or contact shane@okcolab.com to book a tour and free trial day.
