Are you passionate about the tech startup ecosystem? Are you a natural networker with a flair for event planning? Join our team at Venture Mechanics Coworking Studios and Startup Incubator in the role of Startup Community Outreach and Events Coordinator.
Venture Mechanics Coworking Studios and Startup Incubator is a coworking facility featuring 100% active workstations (sit-stand desks, sit-stand conference tables and treadmill desks throughout the building), and other resources like an on-site photo studio, fulfillment warehouse and makerspace. We believe "corporate wellness" shouldn't just be for employees on the main campus; it's just as important for remote/hybrid employees and startup operators. For qualified startups we also offer over 200 events per year just for them, and access to our bevy of pro-bono "venture mechanics," i.e. senior entrepreneurs who want to assist innovative startups in any way they can.
