  • Invitations to member-only events and programs
  • Special rates on skills training and workshops
  • Access to mailbox, printing, and fax services

Is a Hot Desk right for me?

You never know what—or who—might help you find your next customer, advisor, or investor. Working in a space with hundreds of other social ventures, non-profit organizations, artists, and entrepreneurs is the best way to build your network and make these connections!

This is how Awake Labs made CSI membership work for them:

Everyone on our team loves to be a part of this vibrant and badass community of changemakers. It is motivating to come to work when you’re surrounded by people who work every day to change the world!

As a small, scrappy startup, we have had (and will continue to have) our shares of ups and downs. What has remained consistent since we’ve joined CSI is the support we get from the community.

We are grateful for your patience, understanding, and encouragement. We’re also grateful for all the little things that add up to make a big difference like Bagel Bonding, Salad Club, Morning Yoga, the smell of Marcus’ daily morning burrito, or Stefan’s monthly call-to-innovator-drinks.

It also doesn’t hurt to have daily visits from a few of our furry friends who roam the halls looking for treats!

Hot Desks are on-demand desks for those who carry their office with them. They’re perfect for freelancers, creatives, or anyone who is constantly on-the-go.

If you need an office or dedicated space for your team, we’ve got something else for you.
