Connection is at the heart of what we do. Connect spaces are simply safe spaces to connect with other young adults. Building community in NYC can feel impossible at times, causing many to experience crowded isolation. We want to create natural, yet intentional spaces that provide opportunities to connect with others in your industry and neighborhood.

Fill out this 1 minute survey to tell us what neighborhood and industry you are in to get bi-monthly emails about Connect Spaces you may be interested in.
