A year of great press

A year of great news!

Space with a Soul celebrated its first anniversary on May 4, 2012.

To commemorate this milestone, we are taking a look back on our media coverage over the past year and sharing some of the highlights.

We are mission accelerators!  A point clearly stated in a October 2011 post from the MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge.  The author, Randall Cronk, gave an overview of our model and the benefits it provides for our residents.

“Space with a Soul really does have a soul” – Randall Cronk, MIT Enterprise Forum

In February 2012, our CEO was interviewed by the Boston Business Journal giving them a run down of the work that we do.  In the article, Stas compares our space to a transit authority, laying the groundwork for smooth operation.

“[Space with a Soul could be the]…fastest- growing co working space in Boston” – Galen Moore, Boston Business Journal

The Boston Business Journal covered us again during our lease extension and expansion project in February.  Mayor Menino, a vocal supporter of our space, said he was excited to see us grow.

“…they have been a great partner in bringing companies to the Innovation District, and a major location for social events” – Mayor Thomas Menino

The growth of our space caught the attention of the Boston Globe resulting in a feature article about our lease extension/expansion.  The article featured statements from Boston’s Mayor and our founder, Stas Gayshan.

“Our community is united by a desire to give non-profit organizations the ability to focus their energies on their mission and remove the hassles and distractions of operational overhead” — Stas Gayshan, founder of Space with a Soul

Innovation centers are popping up around town but they don’t always succeed.  In an article about this new trend the Boston Globe recognized our successful innovation model as we continue to thrive.

“…[the] innovation center concept [has been] applied successfully downtown [at Space with a Soul] to address environmental, social, and cultural challenges” – Lawrence Harmon, Boston.com

We love seeing our space full of life.  In March we hosted Mass Innovation Nights and its co-founder later mentioned us in a blog post about their party.

“When your Space comes ‘with a soul’ it’s hard not to have a good time” – Bobbie Carlton, co-founder, Mass Innovation Nights

In January 2012, Bostinno.com offered readers a look into the Mayors of Boston’s top 11 co working spaces based on their interaction with Foursquare and our resident chocolatiers made the list.  Bostinno has also included us in their newest addition of “co working spaces around town that you need to know”.

“Space with a Soul…more like Space With a Sweet Tooth” – Lisa DiCanio, Bostinno.com

At Space with a Soul we strive to make a positive impression in our local community and it’s always rewarding to be acknowledged for our efforts.  In December 2011, we were mentioned in a Social Ecosystem blog post about the past year’s 12 most influential companies.

“[these are] wonderful organizations that are making an impact around the world” – Raj Melville, Social Ecosystem
