Startups sitting at DARE2mansion are exposed to a unique combination of incubation and co-working. Our model is based on diversity and close ties. The Mansion is designed to feel like a second home filled with friends who are all similarly trying to create positive impact through their companies. We also provide access to investors, creative outlets, workshops, and learning experiences. The Mansion’s goal is to provide you with a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem that helps you and your team move to the next level and deliver the best results.
Mansioners are entrepreneurs from a broad array of industries with one key common denominator: they all want to create positive impact.
Whether the operation is big or small, all Mansioners have a vision that extends beyond themselves and that is fueled by a desire to create change. The diversity of everyone’s mission and how they achieve it also adds immense value. It’s proven that you learn the most from people who are on the edges of your network and what better way to connect with people who have a different skill set than yours than at the work place.
To facilitate this, the Mansioners eat lunch together everyday. We serve up brain food that optimizes our bodies to conquer the world. We do brain jams where we discuss and challenge the ideas and problems that our residents are grappling with. We start the week off right with Thinking Tuesdays – an inspiration workshop that will help you improve your start up through talks with experts that can cover anything from attracting investors to marketing tools. The goal is to help your business grow.
When you need to shut off from the world, there’s a meditation room to strengthen your focus or just grab a power nap and, when you need an extra energy boost, you can tap into the unlimited supply of organic coffee.
Work is play here and we like to think we have fun every day!
