1. Runway Innovation Hub

Tech founders and companies up to 30 team members.

Recently renovated with beautiful event space and updated lounge areas. Quality perks (daily snacks, fun Happy Hours, access to software credits and top tools like Pitchbook) and a tight-knit community of international founders. Runway also helps connecting its members to corporate investors and partners as interests align (and we also offer virtual office memberships and innovation consulting services).

The Wing offers a global network of community spaces designed for women, and filled with tons of events and networking! They also offer fitness rooms, showers, and lockers.
