Grind is a 22nd century platform that helps talent collaborate in a new way: outside the system.

Grind isn’t an office, it’s the antidote to offices. A members-only shared workspace and coworking community dedicated to taking all of the frustrations of working the old way and pulverizing them to a dust so fine it actually oils the wheels of the machine. A space that caters to free radicals like you.

Hello, Grindists. Come. Sit. Conquer.

Grind is a collaboration by:


What do I get?

  • what do I get - a space that works when you do
    No more 9 to 5. A space that works when you do.
  • what do I get - free joe
    The folks at Intelligentsia have shared their coffee know-how with free radicals, because our daily grind is important to your daily grind.
  • what do I get - like-minded conquerers
    A community of forward-thinking potential collaborators, emancipated from the traditional office.
  • what do I get - conference rooms
    Don’t just think -- do. Reserve a conference room by the hour when you want to host a meeting or work in privacy.
  • what do I get - automagical technology
    Frictionless technology that recognizes you as a Grindist as soon as you enter the space.
  • what do I get - tail space
    Desks for work, phone booths for calls, and couches to just plain park your butt on.
  • what do I get - the grind gallery
    Digital galleries in the workspace that allow you to share your work with the Grind community, find other members in the office, and see upcoming events.

Abolish friction.

Grind was built for free radicals who would rather work in a community than a company.

High tech, low stress
Grind knows you from the moment you walk in the door. Flash your card at the Gallery and your portfolio appears, have a look into other Grind spaces, and just rest easy that we’ve sweated all the details.

Work how you want, when you want
We’re as flexible as you are. An office when you need it, a couch when you don’t. Your choice.

Superior sustainability
From the LED lights to the repurposed floors, the cradle to cradle Vitra furniture, Intelligentsia coffee or low flow faucets, everything at Grind is sustainable. Orange is the new green.

We’re in this together
We’re here to help you work friction free. “I can help you” and “I know people” are at the front desk for anything you may need, including introductions to other members in the space.

Grind isn’t ours, it’s yours
Traveling to Chicago or taking a meeting on the west side? Grind is expanding and providing a network of locations to help you work liquid.

Open space for open minds
Feeling cornered in your corner office? Grind is a workspace, not a workroom. From the windows to the glass walls, we keep things open so you have space to breathe.


Grindists are some of the most diverse and talented people in the world.


It’s not a coworking space without coworkers. Sit next to a new collaborator, find your co-founder at the coffee bar and fill your office with co-conquerors.

Why do you work out of a coworking space? I appreciate the open and stimulating environment of a coworking space.  With Grind there is an amazing energy.  It’s a community of like-minded people, and a wonderful, interesting mix of young businesses.

Why Grind? I love Grind because it is a very inclusive culture, the space is beautiful,  and the Grind team wants everyone to win.  They are very supportive of all businesses and they provide the tools for those businesses to connect and flourish.
