Here are some of the top questions
people ask us.
WHAT IS COWORKING?
It's the gym membership for the business person, remote employee, student, freelance, etc. One place with all of the amenities that are usually the biggest hurdle, struggle, and cost for businesses.
WHAT IS THE FELLOW?
It's a coworking space. 3,000 sq ft of open office space, private space, cafe space, and meeting rooms. Within, we are a network, a community, or remote employees, artists, small business owners, and more who get work done at The Fellow. The Fellow is a platform for events to happen, business to grow, people to have a place full of resources they may not feel like they have anywhere else.
WHO IS THE TYPICAL FELLOW MEMBER?
All 30+ of us have chosen to work alongside and connect with each other—in and out of our Fellow office—to improve ourselves, our businesses, our city, and our world. Beyond that, we represent all ages, backgrounds, and industries.
WHAT EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES WILL THERE BE?
We believe that everyone has something that they have learned in life that is valuable. Do you have a class you want to teach? Let us know and we will promote it to the community. We have an array of members who host talks at The Fellow pertaining to what they are knowledgable about. We have a business financial literacy course that happens here, monthly 1 Million Cups presentations, wwekly Marketing Monday dicussions, and more.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS IF I WORK SOMEWHERE FROM 8-5?
Have a side business but nowhere to operate it on a professional level? Need new business connections? Are you on the go and need a place to land that's not on the opposite side of town? You're not the only one. We can serve you.
WHO SHOULD JOIN THE FELLOW?
About 80% of our members join for one of the following reasons. They desire a rich community of local professionals to be a part of. They want to participate in all of the included education and programming at The Fellow. They want to have the most affordable office space in town. Everyone has their more specific reason for joining. Grab a Day Pass, come down to The Fellow, and start asking our members why they are really here. They will tell you.
HOW DO I SCHEDULE A TOUR?
If you want a tour just give us a call before hand and come on down. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up something in the future. Also, by getting a Day Pass you can come spend the day with us for free which would give you the best feel for the space.
CAN CLIENTS MEET ME AT THE FELLOW?
Yes, of course! This is your office now.
HOW MUCH IS COFFEE?
FREE. And it's roasted fresh weekly from Kansas City, and delivered by Arrow Coffee Co.

Access to our wifi is included in all memberships. We brag about our 200mb/s download, 25 mb/s upload – the fastest currently offered in Manhattan. Our network is secured, managed, and monitored.
WILL IT BE TOO PACKED TO FIND A SEAT?
No. 3,000 sq ft.. plenty of seats. We can hold about 50 people at one time working.

Yes. We are all in for classes and educational events that are open to all of our members. Still not sure if your event fits the space? Shoot us a email at email@example.com and tell us what you want to host and we'll work alongside you.
AS A MEMBER, CAN I HAVE GUESTS STOP BY?
They can. If your guest is a client, they are more than welcome. This is your office and we don’t want you to feel like you can’t have people over. However, if your guest is coming to work for a big chunk of the day, they should purchase a Day Pass or officially join the community with a membership – giving them all the sweet perks associated with doing so. Memberships are what keep The Fellow alive and thriving.
I WANT TO PURCHASE A MEMBERSHIP FOR MY TEAM. ARE THERE GROUP MEMBERSHIPS?
Yes! We customize plans according to the number of people in your group and if you need conference room time. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

We've designed and built the most innovative, custom, phone booths around. And they're in our space!
WHAT PERKS AND BENEFITS DOES MY MEMBERSHIP INCLUDE?
Many! Check them on the membership page.
WHO'S ART IS HANGING ON THE WALLS?
The art in our space is by members of The Fellow and various artists from the Midwest. Most pieces are for sale. The Fellow takes 15% of the sale and puts it towards holding gallery nights for artists. If you're interested in hanging your work in the space, send our curator Caleb an email at email@example.com.
DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER LOCATIONS?
1125 Westport Drive is where we call home, but you should check out our friends who are on The Rail. This is something we built with the owners of these other coworking spaces in the Midwest, where if you have a membership here, you have a free pass there too.
CAN I BRING FOOD?
Yes, of course. And bring us some, too! We have a shared refrigerator, microwave, and bottomless coffee. Many members bring their own lunch, or supplies and leave them here.
