How can Osborn370 accelerate innovation?

Innovators come in all businesses. Whether you’re in technology, engineering, law, finance, communications or any other field, Osborn370 is intentionally building a community that will support you.

Community: Our community offers gathering, meeting and training space that encourages conversation and collaboration. We are the home to small business accelerators that generate energy and ideas that pulse through the community. We partner with organizations such as The Center for Economic Inclusion, Twin Cities Start Up Week, and Blacks in Technology to bring important conversations to our building.

Density: Be surrounded by businesses that are working for growth and see community as a business value. The demand for space in Osborn370 reflects the attributes of this building: innovative, connected, and primed for growth.

Flexibility: Osborn370 offers its tenants flexible options. Got a vision for your work space? We’ll help you build it. Need additional conference and training space? Our community floor has it for you. Are you a small start-up planning to get bigger? Our Flex Floor offers leasing terms that that allow for business growth.

Osborn370 is “Innovation Central” for Saint Paul and the East Metro.

On average, we spend two-thirds of our lives at work. But the definition of “work” has evolved from the 9-to-5 desk job into one that seamlessly blends professional, personal, and social life. Today’s innovative growth companies value connection over hierarchy, searching for purpose rather than grabbing the next rung on the ladder. That’s why our vision at Osborn370 was to create an open environment for companies, individuals, and organizations to create, innovate and collaborate. Because when great ideas have the space to come together—that’s when lightbulb moments turn into motion.
