Coworking Space


The CIE's co-working space is a unique startup incubator facility. Designed for startups at the "napkin stage," the space is a large, shared working area for our tenants to use, accessible 24/7. This room is arranged to encourage a comfortable, creative working atmosphere. The co-working space can occasionally be utilized as an event space when extra room is needed. The space also has an "ideation" room for more private conversation as well as a large conference room that may also be rented out for groups up to 20.

Pricing

Co-working tenants receive all of the amenities and benefits outlined above for up to 2 individuals in a startup for $110 per month.

The contract is made on a month-to-month basis, and tenants can cancel at any time with 30-day notice.

Eligibility

The co-working space is best suited for startups in technology, education, healthcare, marine science, and media production, among other things. It is not ideal for companies that need a brick-and-mortar storefront or established service providers. The Manager of Programs and Operations will determine whether individuals and companies are aligned with the mission and the quality experiences, people, and programs offered.

After these discussions, interested parties will meet with the Manager of Programs and Operations to review and sign the lease, and they will pay a refundable security deposit of $110. Tenant invoices are billed monthly via email.

Please email Laura Brogdon-Primavera, the Manager of Programs and Operations, at cie@uncw.edu to inquire about becoming a tenant.
