Venture Café

Venture Café was created to provide a resource for the Boston entrepreneurial and innovation communities. VC's mission is to enable fresh and useful conversations by bringing together CEOs, investors, and new entrepreneurs. The Venture Café, through its physical space and online communities, can provide the framework upon which numerous experimental “applications” can be nurtured and launched. Currently, the Venture Café is located on the 4th floor of CIC.

Artisan’s Asylum

Artisan’s Asylum is a local non-profit “maker” community and craft studio offering a 31,000 square foot facility with an extensive array of shop equipment. Under our partnership, C3 clients have free use of Artisan Asylum’s basic equipment. Basic tool training classes taught by experienced instructors are also included in your C3 membership, though to use some of the more advanced equipment, you may be required to take one of their paid courses. Facilities include a wood shop, a metal shop, a welding shop, an electronics lab, a sewing area and 3D printers.
