About NextSpace

Welcome to NextSpace Coworking, now powered by Pacific Workplaces (Pac)! We are all about creating a great coworking experience for our members and connecting them to our remarkable community- who’ve made us what we are today. With our recent acquisition by Pac, we’ve been able to stay true to the original NextSpace vision and culture while being part of an expanding portfolio of 17 Pac-Certified locations. (So, yes! We are still the NextSpace everyone knows and loves).

What is The NextSpace Effect?

The NextSpace Effect™ is what happens when you put a couple hundred intelligent, creative people together in a curated community—a NextSpace. Quite simply, it’s amazing. It’s proof that we’re better together, that the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. In every NextSpace, members get to know each other: They’re part of a community, after all. They bump into one another over coffee. They sit next to one another. They talk. They connect. And something new and amazing happens. It might be an idea. A referral. A product. Or a company. A lot of companies have been created by ‘Spacers who got to know each other and made it happen.’  If we have a secret sauce here, that’s it. Communities create collaborations, and collaborations create something brand­ new. You can’t summon up the NextSpace Effect™—nobody knows exactly why, or when it happens. But we do know WHERE it happens, here at NextSpace.

WHAT DRIVES OUR CULTURE?

NextSpace Coworking Santa Cruz Entrepreneurial Events

MISSION

Our mission is to create vibrant,  highly engaged communities where our members feel connected and supported to do their best work. We do this by providing comfortable and professional work environments paired with networking, social and entrepreneurial events.

NextSpace Coworking Berkeley Members Collaboration

VISION

Our job is to foster what we call the “hum,” the “glow,” or the “vibe.” At Nextspace, there is a free flow of ideas, relationships, and collaboration. Members are part of a genuine community—they know others, and are known. And work is not seen as something necessary for life, but as an integral part of it.

NextSpace Coworking Santa Cruz Values

VALUES

Members come first, always.  We are a community—we share values, respect one another, and trust one another. We treat each other with the utmost respect. We have fun! We take our jobs seriously, but not ourselves. (Our company mascot is an orange moose named Reginald or Reggie for short!)

NEXTSPACE IS BORN

2008|

In the heart of Santa Cruz, California, NextSpace burst forth from the minds of then Economic Development Director Jeremy Neuner, Mayor Ryan Coonerty and Attorney Caleb Baskin, who envisioned a utopia in which empty offices could be forged into a signature blend of work space and community. A group of investors was picking up what they were putting down and agreed to fund it. This is known as the pen click heard around the world.

THE BIG SHORT = BIG OPPORTUNITY

2009|

Battered by the torrential 2008 markets, the Santa Cruz community grabbed their bannermen and rallied around NextSpace, as it rapidly became a hub of economic activity, bringing together entrepreneurs, freelancers, and people seeking to balance life and work on their own terms. The mingling of our founding members and new faces created a strong network, leading to many successful ventures and was eventually termed the NextSpace Effect.

NEXTSPACE POTRERO HILL AND NEXTKIDS OPEN!

2013|

NextSpace started to realize their members were having kids, so NextKids opened in July in collaboration with NextSpace Potrero Hill. Sadly, real estate realities of San Francisco in 2015 meant that NextSpace Potrero Hill was unable to renew the lease, so NsPT and NextKids were closed in early 2016. It took Reginald the Moose three weeks to stop weeping. It took us longer.
