Mark Dowds has done a fantastic job building a co-working space for Toronto entrepreneurs, change agents, designers and developers.

These community owned ventures are vital for the health and development of the pioneers in the for-profit, not-for-profit, and charitable sectors. We want to see the lines blurred between these sectors and to see more like minds connecting and helping one another.
