Orange Studios was built with the needs of the independent entrepreneur in mind. The former envelope factory was reshaped into a space that inspires innovation. Members have the ability to collaborate with and contribute to the creativity of the Eastside entrepreneurial landscape. The Redmond coworking space offers members an open workspace with private nooks and conference rooms, a kitchen with complimentary drinks, and a bar for social events. Orange Studios connects members with funding resources and hosts networking events, though with members who work in tech, sales, marketing, and many other industries, networking is built right in.
