Who's Ready for Launch?!

You read that right... October 12, 2018!

Furniture is being delivered and assembled. Lights, AV, IT, and security are being installed. Painting, plumbing, heating, and construction are being wrapped up. The signs are being painted. Coworkers are signing up for spots. And people are reserving use of the event space and conference room spaces for an ongoing basis through next year!

It is the mission of The Space on Main to foster entrepreneurship, innovation, the arts, education, health, and recreation in order to increase opportunity for personal and collective growth in the Cohase Region of Vermont and New Hampshire by providing a creative facility with access to affordable equipment, work spaces, and classes. It is our goal to ensure prosperity of our community by leveraging talent in the region by creating pathways to outside individuals, services, and technologies.
