Co-working in Ottawa

This is Station C‘s sibling, it’s good to see more co-working spaces pop up, I strongly believe they are part of the DNA needed for startup hubs (read also Fred Wilson and Brad Feld on the same subject)

Another community-driven program is TheCodeFactory which was started two years ago by Ian Graham. In a nutshell, it is a co-sharing space hub where entrepreneurs not only meet regularly but also share a common space and resources together. There is a tremendous advantage to this setup as all entrepreneurs feel that they belong to the same community and can support and encourage one another.

TheCodeFactory is not an incubator, so it is not free but the rental rates are extremely affordable and the lease terms are very flexible. Early-stage high-tech companies know how hard it is to convince landlords to rent them space given the high risk nature of their business. So if you are a high-tech entrepreneur working from home I encourage you to give TheCodefactory a serious consideration. Ian is no stranger to high-tech (he was with NewBridge for 15 years before it got bought by Alcatel) and he will understand your needs. By the way he is also courteous.
