Gangplank is a collaborative workspace that provides resources and infrastructure to creatives building the new economy. We believe that Phoenix can be a fantastic center for innovation—once committed. We believe that web professionals should focus on collaboration over competition, and that ideas should be shared freely. We believe that small businesses, micro-businesses, and freelancers, bridged together in common cause, will be the core of economic development in Arizona.
As an Arizona nonprofit awaiting our 501(c)3 designation, we rely on our partners to keep our work sustainable and innovative. In exchange, you have the opportunity to tie your brand to our creative and cutting-edge community, associating your company with the startup and entrepreneur scene.
Gangplank HQ attracts more than 1,000 individuals a month into our space to work, play and create. Since our space is open to the public, many local companies utilize our rooms for meetings and events in addition to our regular drop-in community. Our events range from professional development workshops to youth activities, ensuring a diversity of exposure for your brand or product. Additionally, our affiliate program is currently building Gangplank’s in other areas of Arizona, as well as globally, providing the opportunity for international exposure.
Our population is a mix of permanent companies, known as Anchors, and drop-in freelancers, contractors, and startups. More than 75% of Gangplank participants and Anchors work in tech-related industries, such as web/app development, design/marketing, general IT and SEO. 55% of Gangplank participants are between the ages of 26-35.
We have several options to contribute to Gangplank on the individual affiliate level.
