In just a few years, Troy Innovation Garage has become an integral part of the startup ecosystem in Upstate New York. The mix of amenities that the coworking community offers businesses, combined with a healthy mix of programs, connections, and incubator services is a perfect complement to many other activities happening in Downtown Troy, around the Capital Region, and the State. The first-class approach to service and programming is a huge benefit to members and guests. In our travels and visits to over 75 coworking spaces, incubators and accelerators around the country and world, what Aurelius Coworks has built in Troy is in the same class as places in the country’s most celebrated startup communities.
This venture started with one massive building in the middle of Downtown Troy built in 1872, which had most famously housed an automobile dealership and garage for Pierce-Arrow automobiles, begging to be revitalized. In Troy, NY our flagship location, Aurelius can experiment and work out concepts and critical operations. The team has fine-tuned our desire to go beyond real estate project and first and foremost do things that will lead to the success of our members. We’ve developed an “ecosystem model,” where we invest time and energy into participating and connecting to surrounding startup endeavors and economic development initiatives. We directly support growing business sectors and industries.
Troy Innovation Garage
Creativity. Community. Collaboration. Troy Innovation Garage offers members access to a hospitality-oriented, hyper-charged coworking ecosystem featuring open work spaces bustling with energy, private office suites, group meeting and conference rooms. We serve the Capital Region’s creative class, including startup companies and organizations, solopreneurs, and remote workers in our meticulously renovated 14,000 square foot historic building in Downtown Troy, NY close to restaurants, shops and the Hudson River waterfront.
Over $350 million has been invested by the private sector in the small (0.25 square mile) downtown, including nearly 1,000 new residential units. The Garage was built to support the region’s growing creative economy and Troy’s blossoming startup software and digital gaming cluster.
Bull Moose Club
Changemakers wanted. Bull Moose Club is a hyper-charged, hospitality-oriented work environment built to serve New York State’s political and government economy, as well as support startup activity in Downtown Albany. This 10,000 square foot space was leased and built out by our development team and construction partners directly across the street from the New York State Capitol on historic State Street.
Bull Moose Club’s member companies have raised $6 million in venture capital and excel in their respective industries, from politics to startups. Our space hosts special events open to the public and free for our club members, including presentations by top elected officials and political insiders, public policy debates and roundtable discussions moderated by trusted journalists.
