Think Tank Coworking is northern New England's largest coworking facility, with locations in downtown Portland, Yarmouth, Biddeford and a fourth location on the way in Boston.
Founder and Director, Patrick Roche started Think Tank in November of 2010 in Portland, boot-strapping the project with personal loans and a lot sweat equity. Since then, the Think Tank brand, model and community has continued to grow and evolve, adapting to the ever-evolving economic landscape.
Our vision is to build an interconnected network of coworking facilities throughout New England. We believe that coworking is the future of community engagement, startup ideation and business incubation.
As more and more people discover the power of a bottom-up approach to economic recovery and opt to pursue better work/life balance through remote working, we expect to see the coworking model flourish in satellite cities around the country. Think Tank intends to be a champion of this idea, tailoring the model to meet communities where they are.
To this end, Think Tank’s founder is actively working to influence policy makers and real estate developers around New England to improve the opportunities for collaborative workspaces. Check out LD1332, An Act to Attract Entrepreneurs to the state. Think Tank’s founder was involved in the drafting and passage of this bill in Maine.
Think Tank is currently exploring new facilities in Dover, New Hampshire, Brunswick, Maine, Burlington, VT and Brighton, MA.
