What Is NextSpace?

Known as one of the first coworking spaces in the world, NextSpace is a community of people who are committed to excelling, collaborating and innovating together. NextSpace is now powered by Pacific Workplaces (Pac) and is part of the Pac family of shared workspaces, but stays true to its original vision.  We realized long ago that everyone works better when we work together. OUR CULTURE IS EVERYTHING and is what continues to make us unique and special.

WHAT MAKES NEXTSPACE SPECIAL?

The NextSpace Ethos is about smart, talented, creative people working in new ways. We believe they deserve comfortable and professional spaces and colleagues to inspire and support them. Our team creates the space and facilitates member programs like professional workshops, member-hosted happy hours, and events with expert panelists within a specific industry. The outcome is a unique combination of workspace + community.

We understand that the best ideas and the best work often comes from our connections with other people, and it ought to be in a setting that works for you, not against you. That’s what NextSpace is all about. Above all, we are here to serve our members.

The NextSpace Effect

The NextSpace Effect is what happens when you put a couple hundred smart, creative people together in a curated community—a NextSpace.  Members get to know each other: They’re part of a community.  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, realized there was a there there, so to speak, 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 it does happen. And only at NextSpace.

Mission: What We’re Doing

Our mission is to build and operate the best coworking spaces in the world. We do this by providing comfortable and professional work environments, and by fostering vibrant, collaborative communities.

VISION: HOW WE’RE DOING IT

Our job is to foster what we call the “hum,” the “glow,” or the “vibe.” This means that we’re a place with a certain kind of welcoming, supportive, creative and challenging energy. That energy is created by our community, and managed by the best staff in the world. It happens in a space where people can do their very best work and there is a free flow of ideas and collaboration. Where members are part of a genuine community—they know others, and are known. Where the physical environment is professional and comfortable, and where work is an integral part of life.

VALUES: WHAT WE CARE ABOUT

  1. Members come first, always.
  2. We are a community—we share values, respect one another, and we trust one another.
  3. We treat one another with the utmost respect. As a company, we have no tolerance at all for discrimination or harassment.
  4. 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.
