In December, only one month after its official opening, Pipeline Brickell, a high-design shared workspace, reached 70 percent occupancy and is now home to dozens of startups, established companies and professionals.
Now open at 1101 Brickell Ave., Pipeline, the first-of-its-kind, uses workspace to integrate startups, professionals and global companies into the Miami business community.
Pipeline’s growing membership includes: The Founder’s Institute, the world’s largest startup accelerator with over 650 graduate companies; Pininfarina, an Italian-based design firm with clients including Ferrari and Maserati; Virgin Unite, a non-profit foundation founded by Richard Branson for the venture capital conglomerate Virgin Group; Rent Jiffy, a Washington, DC-based online business for property license filing and preparation services; LearnerNation, a cutting-edge provider of interactive learning tools specializing in organizational training; SkyBank Financial, a leader in electronic payment processing for small and mid-sized companies in the U.S., and GuestBooker, a New Yorkbased firm that specializes in booking highprofile talent on national TV networks, among many others.
Digital media companies including The Real Deal-South Florida and Nap Dog Media also have joined the space to take advantage of the Brickell address, connectivity between members and proximity to their clients.
“The success that the Pipeline concept is having in Miami only weeks after opening is indicative of the palpable demand for today’s working professionals and creatives to be in a beautiful environment that fosters collaborative partnerships in the heart of the business community,” said Pipeline co-founder Todd Oretsky.
“Every day, we see members at Pipeline interacting, organizing meetings, establishing connections and collaborating on projects. As an operator and professional investor in small businesses, I know that this is imperative for success in today’s market.”
Pipeline offers 14,000 square feet of flexible workspace with spectacular 360-degree city and bay views and a membership program that range from flexible spaces, dedicated desks, and private and virtual offices. The creatively designed shared workspace features modern office furniture, spacious conference rooms, communal lounges and cafes, as well as private offices and workspaces for individuals and teams.
With member-only programs and community and business events taking place on a weekly basis, including “hackathons,” chamber panels and industry seminars, Pipeline is fostering the integration of Miami’s business, civic and tech communities in its bustling urban core.
Among events recently hosted at Pipeline are Refresh Miami’s Windows 8 Hackathon sponsored by Microsoft; a Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce panel on mobile devices; a digital marketing seminar for real estate professionals hosted by One Sothebys International Realty, Constant Contact and Esolist, and Entrepreneurs’ Organization Forum meetings.
“We are finding that members are not only engaging and collaborating with their neighbors, but are also informally networking through the many seminars, special programs and events we host each week here at Pipeline,” said Pipeline co-founder Philippe Houdard. “There is a value that you simply can’t get from working at home or in a private office. Our members get that and are already taking full advantage.”
Every day, members are benefitting from the communal environment, working sideby- side with professionals in industries such as technology, communications, e-commerce and online services, real estate and law.
Membership benefits include community access, receptionist services, extremely highspeed fiber-based Internet access (wired and wifi), conference rooms and video conferencing, office machines, 24-hour access, abundant parking and company signage in Pipeline’s lobby, plus more.
Membership starts at $99 per month for virtual offices and $1,000 per month for private offices. Located at the center of Miami’s Brickell Financial District, Pipeline members enjoy being within walking distance to investors and clients, dozens of restaurants, cafes, the Shops at Mary Brickell Village and high-end hotels. The space also offers easy access to public transportation, including the Metrorail, Airport Link, Metromover and Downtown Miami Trolley.
