Today marked a milestone at RocketSpace, the San Francisco coworking space and accelerator for high-growth, seed-funded startups. After spending the last 30 months at 181 Fremont St., located in the swank, modern SoMa end of SF’s Financial District, the company temporarily closed its doors in anticipation of a move to nearby 225 Bush St. later this week.
RocketSpace opened in 2011, a time when the city’s coworking movement was still in its early growth stage. RocketSpace quickly became a hub for some of the city’s most dynamic startups, including Uber, Spotify, Leap Motion, Snip.it, and Podio. The space has attracted top innovators through its combination of shared office space, a dynamic range of events, and integration with corporate innovation teams, not to mention the natural appeal of great minds congregating in close proximity.
Founder Duncan Logan today posted to Facebook, expressing his thanks to the team of people who helped make his vision a reality:
RocketSpace is 30 months old and today is our last day at 181 Fremont Street. Thanks to Tom Poser for finding the building, Paul Stein in leasing it to us, Erik Christiansen for being my first customer, Mike Bowie for quitting everything to come and help. Onwards and upwards…
Onwards and upwards, indeed! We congratulate RocketSpace on their success, and commend them for their bold new move. Follow @RocketSpace on Twitter for news on their forthcoming transition.
