A workspace for alumni- and student-led ventures

Build your company at Northeastern in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley.

Startup Space @ Silicon Valley is a co-working space for selected ventures led by Northeastern alumni or students. Startups that are chosen by application will be invited to use the space free of charge.

Housed in the same campus as our graduate programs in downtown San Jose, CA, the site is newly-renovated and fully-equipped office space. Along with desk space, you’ll share access to conference rooms, breakout spaces, a reservable event space, and other building amenities.

Northeastern University in San Jose will accept applications on a yearly basis for qualifying startups, with the inaugural cohort to be welcomed in September, 2022 for an initial lease period of six months until March 1, 2023.

Applications are open now.
