Green Spaces New York, a hub for social entrepreneurs and green business ventures, officially opened their new location in downtown Manhattan last week. Over 300 industry leaders, social entrepreneurs, and select media filled the Tribeca loft for the celebration, which featured opening remarks by TreeHugger's Graham Hill and Green Map System's Wendy Brawer.
Green Spaces' move to Manhattan marks updated membership opportunities for the green community, with promotional rates through January 1, 2010. The company is now offering a groundbreaking national Clubhouse Membership for EcoPreneurs. This includes access to events such as film screenings, gallery openings, supper clubs, networking cocktails, pop-up retail shops, post-work happy hours, educational workshops, utilization of a Startup Package, and most importantly entry to the national Green Spaces community, which includes their location in Denver, Colorado. To welcome their new community into their Manhattan space, Green Spaces is offering a FREE One Day pass for individuals interested in a green working space.
Located at 394 Broadway, New York, New York, the 5,300-square-foot loft is refurbished with entirely reused furniture. The office uses 100% wind power energy. Green Spaces has low-power utilization through remote data storage, uses a passive heating and cooling system, and is implementing a composting system and partnership with Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).
Green Spaces has hosted more than 40 green start-up companies and continues to aid the launch of small businesses in a communal work space. Entrepreneurs have their own desk space, access to a conference room, lounge, kitchen, networking, internship program, and in-house IT solutions through Green T Digital. Green Spaces connects the green economy and fosters emerging green businesses, through events, workshops and outreach to over 5,000 leaders in the New York metro area--and thousands more nationwide.
