• About Us

    Platform 53 is on a mission to revolutionize the way we work and engage with others. Join our diverse community of independent professionals, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and mobile workers. We provide not only work and meeting space, but a platform for you to share ideas, connect with others, get inspired, learn, support each other, and collaborate. The industry calls this ‘coworking’ (Check out this video). We call it awesome.
