It’s quite remarkable that SLO at this point in time has a space like this. This is much more a trend that you see in communities much larger than ours. It really speaks to the entrepreneurial spirit of the community.Ermina Karim

Can’t say enough good stuff about this place: they’ve got everything you could need, plus great peeps and a great vibe. I’ve rented a “personal workbench” to re-establish my freelance web development business here in SLO (and, in my free time, further my evil plans for world domination– bwah ha ha ha!). It’s gone swimingly so far- stay tuned 😉Matt Gates
The perfect idea laboratory!Clint Slaughter
