The Riveter is heading to Portland.
Today the Seattle-based co-working space announced its first location in Portland, Ore., at the Washington High School Landmark Building. Like the company’s other locations, it will have floating and dedicated desks, private offices, and space for events.
The Portland facility at 501 SE 14th Ave., the company’s tenth location, will open July 22. The Riveter has grown to 65 full-time employees since opening its first space in Seattle two years ago.
When The Riveter launched, it distinguished itself from other co-working spaces by catering to women entrepreneurs. Today, The Riveter is trying to broaden its appeal by creating a space that is inclusive to all genders, sexualities, ethnicities, ages, and abilities.
In Portland, The Riveter’s prices run from $280 a month for a floating desk to $4,500 for a nine-person office. The Portland facility will open July 22.
Earlier this year, The Riveter kicked off its national expansion plans with a facility in Austin, Texas. In late 2018, the company closed a $15 million funding round and established a new goal: 100 co-working spaces by 2022. It won Startup of the Year honors at the GeekWire Awards in May.
The Riveter CEO Amy Nelson and Kim Peltola established the company in 2017. Peltola left The Riveter shortly after the launch.
