The Food Loft Launches in Boston

by Adam on September 30, 2013

Today, in the spirit of fostering relationships with entrepreneurs in the food and foodtech space, I’m pleased to share the news that The Food Loft has officially opened in Boston’s South End. You can read more about it here:

The Food Loft is founded out of The Harvard Common Press office space, and offers coworking space, networking, events and resources for entrepreneurs in the food arena. It builds on the work the company has been doing with startup companies to help them build and expand their businesses through strategic partnership and investment. I’m excited to see what a resource such as The Food Loft can do for entrepreneurs, and also to see what interest we get after the announcement. So far, we’ve seen great enthusiasm from The Boston Globe and Boston Innovation, among others and hopefully will see more over time.

While the model for food-related coworking space that we are pioneering is a new idea as it relates to aiding startups, the notion of a vertically-oriented coworking space or incubator isn’t, and the same has been seen in the health and cleantech space. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see more of these kinds of niche-focused opportunities, especially because they allow entrepreneurs and their resource providers to harness the power of synergistic relationships that come from working on similar problems. My hope is that this is the beginning of something bigger for the food space.
