Workbox

Workbox is a Coworking Accelerator that provides bold companies with the resources to grow faster, smarter and together. We offer much more than an office. We are an ecosystem of innovation, problem solving and idea sharing and a center of gravity for companies looking to connect.

About

At Workbox, our mantra is learning as we do. We celebrate individuals willing to break the mold to pursue their passions. Our company was built on the premise that taking the initiative to build a business should not be a lonely journey. Workbox is a team of entrepreneurs devoted to helping other entrepreneurs succeed. Our aim is to create a culture of action, collaboration and support to help our members turn their professional passions into successful ventures.

 

Workbox provides two memberships:

 

1) Accelerator membership is for companies looking for resources to accelerate their growth via capital, strategic services and mentorship.

 

2) Coworking membership is for companies in search of a dynamic work environment as well as access to a powerful community of other business leaders.

 

All members get the benefit of belonging to a community of growing businesses, experienced entrepreneurs and connected executives.
