For the past few months, we have been in the process of nailing down the specifics of our co-working offering. About six months ago, the great guys at Kalamuna came in looking for a bit of space, so we offered them a room. (We have one large room that is best suited for a team of 2-4.) Their company is thriving so they are moving to a new permanent office in Oakland at the beginning of March. We loved having them here, and it was really great to have other people in the office to collaborate with, or pop over if we had a quick question about their areas of expertise.
Co-working also appeals to us because we routinely work with freelancers and we want to build collaborative relationships. For some people, coworking is more fulfilling than working from home or coffee shops, because you often feel less isolated and more productive.
So after experiencing a bit of the co-working lifestyle ourselves, we would like to make use of our space and welcome in individuals and small teams to work, collaborate, and learn at Mm. Our large classroom is in use some evenings and weekends, but we have a lot of free space during the workday. Maybe you would like to join us during the day?
We have the perfect space for co-working. We have modular office furniture with all the desks and chairs on wheels so you can create a huge conference table in minutes, then break it down in even less time to work at your own desk by yourself. If you are in web development or design, we have our very own Open Device Lab in our office. If you are making websites, having access to many different devices to test on is an invaluable resource. The ODL is always open to the public, but as a member, you don’t have to leave the building to use it.
Here is a little bit of what is included in a co-working membership:
- A desk on wheels
- A comfy office chair
- A monitor (negotiable)
- Printer & Scanner
- Presentation space / conference room
- Access to our kitchenette with fresh coffee, tea, bottled water, organic fruit, and small snacks daily; as well as microwave and refridgerator

There are so many benefits to co-working, and we are very excited to start offering our space to professionals in the Oakland area.
