@CitizenSpace Holiday Party 2k11

All year long, Citizen Space has been a treasure trove of awesome new ideas, innovations, and has been the new home of a ton of super cool, creative endeavors.  Although we’re all-casual for the whole year, the workspace has seen many all-day and all-nighters, and let’s face it: in such a collaborative space, work becomes fun and fun becomes work and before you know it, you’re always working!

So, to give thanks to all of our members, various event sponsors, community partners, and all of our Citizen Spacer’s from the Bay Area (and afar) for a year’s worth of hard work, innovation, and collaboration with Citizen Space…..We’re throwin’ a party!

On Wednesday, December 21, 2011, we’re hosting the @CitizenSpace Holiday Party 2k11 at our SoMa, SF location.  Come unwind and network with some of the awesome people that all, in some way or another, are a part of of the Citizen Space #coworking network!  There’s going to be some drinks, snacks, games, tweets….and dessert.  Although we will have some things supplied, please do feel free to show us your best holiday treat cooking- you won’t hear us complaining!

The party will take place from 7:00pm to 10:00pm.  We are located at the intersection of 2nd Street & Harrison, building #425.  You will enter through the loading dock.

Hope to see you all there!  Let Matt know if you have any questions: matt@citizenspace.us.

PS- Matt’s even going to bake a batch of festive vegan holiday cookies.  Will it be….dark chocolate chip?  Half-baked brownies?  Or maybe even Macadamian Nut? Tweet your ideas to @CitizenSpace, and I’ll make the best one.

Citizen Space is the world’s first coworking space, located at 425 2nd Street in the SoMa district of San Francisco.  The idea of Citizen Space is to take the best elements of a coffee shop (social, energetic, creative) and the best elements of a workspace (productive, functional), and combine them to give indie workers the chance to have their own, affordable office space.  Citizen Space was built on the coworking philosophy.  Our residents (past and present) range from: software engineers, web developers, social media consultants/strategists, graphic designers, product designers, public relations specialists, and sustainable web hosting entrepreneurs.  Check us out today!

#Coworking for Food Drive!

Posted on 16. Nov, 2011 by in blog, Events, Local News, San Jose, SOMA

As the holidays quickly approach, so does the season for generosity.  In the spirit of giving back to the community, Citizen Space has launched a food drive to benefit San Francisco Food Bank, a community non-profit dedicated to feeding the hungry.

San Francisco Food Bank

Citizen Space is launching a food drive to benefit San Francisco Food Bank

Hunger manifests itself as a consistent lack of enough food to meet nutritional requirements. It can mean fewer meals each day and poor-quality food that is calorie-rich but nutrient-poor.

In San Francisco, 197,000 people struggle each day to feed themselves and their families. In Marin, just over 40,000 people – or 16% of the population – face the threat of hunger on a given day.

Citizen Space will be collecting canned food goods at our SF  & San Jose locations from now through the end of the year.  To reward all for participating in the food drive, we are offering 50% off of or regular drop-in rate for every person who donates five or more canned food items for the drive!

Citizen Space is also reaching out to other coworking establishments in San Francisco to build an all-star community of donors, with hopes of feeding more hungry people this holiday season.  Interested in contributing? E-mail Matt to join our team!

Giving back to the community with a round of  #coworking, on us: doesn’t get much better! Check out our team’s page today: http://holidaydrive.sffoodbank.org/team/8045388066

Posted on 16. Nov, 2011 by in blog, Events, SOMA

Hello Citizen Space Friends,

This Sunday (Nov. 20th) @StartupMonthly  is hosting it’s ICE BREAKER 3.0 in San Francisco!

As prelude to the Idea Accelerator workshop series, Ice Breaker is a full-day workshop focused on introducing you to your future co-founders and finding additional resources for  your exciting team. It’s an opportunity to meet a ton of great people and ideas, all through different interactive games and fun activities!

Startup Monthly

Join us on 11/20 for Ice Breaker 3 @ Citizen Space, SF

Ask yourself: Do you want to accelerate your idea? Meet a co-founder? Define a Business Model? Prototype your Minimal Viable Product and see if it can generate money? Do you want to be ready to apply to incubator or be ready to raise seed money?

The Startup Monthly Idea Accelerator program will help you achieve these goals in just 5 weeks!

The Ice Breaker is separate from the Idea Accelerator Program which is a 6 week (Due to the holidays) program that uses Lean Startup methodology and Customer Development to define a Business Model, prototype rapid MVP, test the market and show traction. You will be able to show your program results at our Final Demo event to a panel of investors and advisors that will give you suggestions on the next steps (Seed Investment, Incubator, etc)

This event is where you will build your team and recruit the missing resources, so it is critical that you take the time to get to know the members during the challenges and activities. Team is the most important factor in your next venture!

Coworking meets cooking classes in SF

Posted on 12. Nov, 2011 by in blog, Classes, Coworking, Events, SOMA

'Route to India' Cooking Class @ Citizen Space, SF

'Route to India' Cooking Class @ Citizen Space, SF

Collaboration is the lively spirit behind what makes #coworking so great at Citizen Space. From designers & interface developers, to programmers and marketing pros- we’ve got a little bit of everything….even cooking classes!

Every other Tuesday, Citizen Space is transformed into a hands-on cooking experience with Nalini Mehta in her three-hour ‘Route to India’ cooking class. The class begins with a survey that each participant fills out to determine which types of food they should be eating. Before you even know it, the whole office smells appetizing, and scent waves of delicious curry, vegetable combos of all sorts, and other Indian delicacies fill the whole space.

The coolest part? The class includes a wonderful meditation session, and there’s more food to eat at the end than can be eaten! Nalini shares the eating experience with everyone, as they devour their very own homemade Indian food.

Class participants socialize and chow down on their homemade Indian food.

Citizen Space has broadened the already vast amount of opportunities to use the coworking space in a multitude of ways. Events of all sorts take place at the space often, and the atmosphere that is created is shared with the awesome coworkers that are creating, developing, and producing cool stuff.

Where else can you end a hard day of work with a relaxing cooking class, or a networking event to collaborate and work with people that have experience in virtually all facets of the tech world? Citizen Space really is a much nicer place to work! Come check us out!
