Please be our guest! Join fellow entrepreneurs, mentors, advisors, investors, and government representatives at our First Anniversary celebration – It’s a Party!! The celebration will be on Friday, October 21 at Station 2 Innovation, 912 7th Ave E, Bradenton, FL 34208 from 4pm – 7pm. Come and enjoy food, beverages & great company.

Who knew that from our humble beginnings on the Station 2 project – coworking, business development, entrepreneur education and special events – that we would change the place where we live and work? In the past year, the question has gone from “what’s coworking?” to “where is the next cowork center going to open?” We have served more than 4500 entrepreneur visits in the past year and a half, and have numerous examples of lives affected and business success occurring.

In a recent testimonial, author Sabine Priestley says “Station 2, where passion meets productivity. Being around people with passion always leads to creativity, and Station 2 does that for me. From a productive writing atmosphere to networking sessions that never fail to serve up intelligent, driven people, this is where I get it done!”

At Station 2, our mission is serving entrepreneurs, building community, and growing businesses in Bradenton and beyond. In our uniquely historic facility, we host weekly entrepreneur and business education events, student internship opportunities, coworking members and free, open cowork on Tuesdays, and a variety of meetup groups. All activities are centered around building a community of like-minded people who enjoy collaborating on their work and learning from each other. Coworking is a new way of working, and we’re building a better way to work as we continue adding members, features, services and events.

From Scott Carvin, an SEO Services professional: “This is an amazing coworking location that I highly recommend for anyone looking to grow their business! The resources and contacts we’ve made from their events have been invaluable. A great place for community meetups.”
