The Evolve Experience
Are you a solopreneur or a start-up looking for a low cost alternative to a noisy coffee shop, or maybe wanting to bounce ideas off of someone rather than a pet? Are you part of a small business that’s outgrown the garage or home office, or perhaps a larger office looking for energizing, offsite creative space?
Whether you’re a team of one with multiple hats or part of a specialized project team, we think you’ll agree that you can be more productive and have fun working around others. At Evolve, we want you to be able to work in proximity to other talented people who work independently, yet together. Evolve has a membership level to fit your needs.
As a new coworking space, we still have a lot of work to do here—waiting on signage, a little touch-up painting, getting new furniture installed and all the perks in place—but we are open for business and have already had several small businesses join us as coworking community members—you’ll want to be next! Evolve with us, while we’re offering big construction specials.

We are one of the few coworking sites that offer the expertise of a Small Business Development specialist on-site. Whether you are looking for take a sole proprietorship to scale, or need an hourly Admin Assistant or errand runner, we can help. We also offer topical seminars, networking ops, and member Happy Hours, so that you’re guaranteed to make connections!

When we’re fully built-out, we’ll have all this and more: $1 massage chair; office supplies at cost. Also lots of freebies, including hammocks to chill in; a fun-filled game room with ping pong, putting green, air hockey, and more; a packaging/crafting/gift wrap station with everything from mailing envelopes and boxes to ribbons and greeting cards. Our goal is to make life convenient!
