VenturePad is Marin’s premier cowork community and business incubator, opened in March. Located at 1020 B Street in downtown San Rafael, VenturePad fills a need in Marin County for affordable, accessible and professional coworking space and entrepreneur support services for start-ups, solopreneurs, creatives, freelancers & telecommuters to help them reach their professional & personal goals. Our impact oriented, values-driven community supports you with affordable shared office space, training & expert mentoring.
Get out of the home office when you need to. Upgrade from the coffee shop. Don't get into a sublet or office lease by yourself, come share our office space, join our coworking community and work around others in a workspace with an open desk or private desk, and meeting rooms. Be a part of something bigger with a mission and a vision that aligns with your values!
• Professional upgrade from the home office. Get away from distractions, interruptions and the entertainment temptations. Reduce the entrepreneur isolation and loneliness.
• Time to move beyond the café. Feeling like a space parasite at your local cafe? Work with a comfortable table & chair optimized for productive work and professional meetings. Get away from the din of food service and constant people traffic.
• Have business meetings in a professional setting with conference rooms, private office settings with supper fast Wi Fi, big screens, ergonomic chairs, wonderful natural and task lighting.
• Wake up with purpose and have a place to go working side by side with driven, smart peers and advisors who will inspire you, help you become more effective and reach your goals faster.
• Work in a buzzing, friendly downtown neighborhood filled with the best of San Rafael’s restaurants, shops, business and amenities. VenturePad is a short walk to the San Rafael transit center and the new SMART train station, and under 5 minutes to I-101. Parking is plentiful. Walking and biking are do-able and encouraged!
