FORT WAYNE's COWORKING

COMMUNITY × COLLABORATION × COLLISIONS 

 

Atrium is one project from Start Fort Wayne, a nonprofit organization that supports high-growth entrepreneurs in Northeast Indiana.

Atrium offers its members work space for collaboration, collisions and community in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne.

Atrium is 5,500 square feet of space for entrepreneurs, small businesses, students, and startups to work, collaborate, meet, and thrive. We've built a modern “open office” work space where you can get things done without the constant noise and distractions of your local coffee shop or your home office.

With a monthly membership, you can walk into a ready to go office space, reserved desk, or shared common space and get to work immediately. No leases, no waiting on build-outs, no buying furniture. We’ll have the free coffee ready for you.

Members also get access to members-only benefits like monthly member mixers, entrepreneur-focused learning lunches, and monthly meetups. Members are also engaged in a thriving community of innovators and change-makers!

Membership F.A.Q.

Is there a contract or a lease?

No. You are joining as a member of the community. There are no leases nor are there any contracts. You pay month-to-month as long as you need the space. We have members that pause and play their memberships as their business needs require. 

Can I get a discount if I want to prepay for a full year?

You bet. If you want to buy an entire year up-front you will get one month free. If at any point you want to upgrade your membership your remaining balance will simply be credited to you at the new level so your money isn't "locked" into a specific level. 

What are your payment options?

We only accept credit cards for those who want to pay month-to-month which is most of our members. We do not accept cash. If you wish to prepay an entire year we will accept a check for your convenience. 

What are your hours?

Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM. This means that the front door is unlocked and available for the public and your guests to come in. In addition, we maintain staff during business hours to ensure that Atrium is kept clean and the coffee keeps flowing.

What does 24/7 access look like?

Our premium, professional and 24/7 general membership levels all have access to Atrium every day and around the clock. You can access the space by a key card that is assigned to you.

Is my stuff secure?

Like any shared public space, you should use your best judgment on what to leave at your desk. All Professional and Premium members will have a locking cabinet or office to lock up any valuables. General Members should not leave anything behind in the space while they are not there.

In addition to our key card system and our staff, we have a security camera system that is monitoring the space and recording all activity there.

Atrium (and Start Fort Wayne) is not liable for your personal belongings. We will do our best to provide a secure space and monitor who comes and goes, but ultimately your belongings are your responsibility - just like any coffee shop or office environment.

What about parking?

Like many businesses downtown, Atrium does not provide parking. There are ample garages and lots within a block of Atrium, most with monthly parking options, and there is on-street metered parking directly in front of Atrium and nearby for shorter visits.

Here's more info about downtown parking availability and rates, from the Downtown Improvement District website.

Is cancelling my membership a hassle?

Once you've decided that membership at Atrium no longer fits your needs or you simply need to "pause" your membership for a couple of months, just let the front desk know and we'll get your membership cancelled so you will not be charged on the next month's billing cycle. 

If you are cancelling (or simply pausing) your membership we do require that all keys and key cards are returned. Your membership will continue as long as these items are not returned. In the event you've lost a key card or office key there will be a charge per lost key/key card.

In addition, if you have a dedicated office or desk this will become available for others. So if you have a dedicated desk (or office) and you are pausing your membership it is possible that this desk (or office) may not be available when you come back. 

Is there a cancellation fee?

Nope. There is no fee for cancelling your membership however there are also no refunds so it's important that you cancel your membership before the next billing cycle begins.  

What if I lose a key card or office key?

Please report the lost item immediately especially the key card which would allow access to the building. A $5 per key card/office charge will apply. 

I keep seeing references to Start Fort Wayne, what is that?

Start Fort Wayne, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to promoting entrepreneurship and building an entrepreneurial community in Fort Wayne. Atrium was the first major project undertaken by Start Fort Wayne. Atrium is also the home of Start Fort Wayne. 

How busy does it get during the day?

Here's a nifty little chart of who's here (by membership level) during business hours.
