In 1999, “coworking” wasn’t a household term, let alone a standard office option. That year, Cambridge Innovation Center became the first provider of shared office space in Cambridge’s Kendall Square (now known as the most innovative square mile on the planet) and one of the original players in the market for shared office space anywhere.

The mission was the same then as it is now: to support entrepreneurs in fixing the world through innovation.

As of 2018, over 5,000 companies had chosen CIC as their platform for growth. See CIC’s Global Impact Report for more information.

Countless innovations developed at CIC simultaneously solve problems, improve lives, and hold significant economic value. In 2018 alone, CIC client companies attracted a cumulative $1.3B in venture capital investment. Meanwhile, firms located within CIC buildings currently manage over $8.3B in VC funds.

 

Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.
