Collectiveffort is the newest co-working space in the Capital Region. But back to that dream, nope, you are not dreaming…. CE is the latest from the Collective, a group of creatives in the Capital Region who want to encourage and help other creatives just starting out. Dreamy huh? Pictured is the podcasting booth where creators and podcasters can live-cast or record their latest episodes. Last week, a bunch of the creatives in the 518 got together to celebrate the grand opening along with the founders of the Collectiveffort at the monthly ACE event.

Conveniently located CE is on the 4th floor at 415 River Street, in Troy, NY. CE is just down the block from the River Street Market, fka the Headley Building. On your way to CE you can grab a Stacks Espresso and or Acai bowl from Maria’s and later stop by Ryan’s Wake or Brown’s Brewing Troy, for an after work brew or bite. Monthly memberships are available. Click the links to learn more about the Collectiveffort or to become a member and join. If you are interested in building community and are an early bird, you should check out the weekly meeting Tuesday at 6:30 am (locations vary) of the Power Breakfast Club a group that is open to all.
