Startup & Co-working Space

Listing of space that is ‘friendly’ to startups and small enterprises (low rent and month-to-month leases) that is close to the ‘university corridor’ (Fifth and Forbes Avenues) and accessible by public transportation.
NEW! Second stage space listings under a new tab. These spaces are still startup friendly but they are geared for teams that have outgrown the startup and co-working space (generally when the team reaches 10 or more people).
Please send any additions to the listings to kit@cs.cmu.edu.
