Do You Have a Collaboration Space?

Since moving to New York one of my greatest frustrations has been finding a core community of innovators to engage with face to face.  I know the city is packed with them, but between my travel and working from home I just have not been able to find a place to consistently connect in the city.  I tried several co-working spots, but the truth is that I don't need a co-working space as I have a very effective and efficient space at home to be productive.  The cost of a co-working space to just drop in and meet people just didn't work for me.  

This past week I became a member of LMHQ in New York City.  LMHQ is a Collaboration Space for creators and creatives in Lower Manhattan with the goal of coming together to collaborate, activate, and accelerate their growth. When I heard about the space I was immediately fascinated by the vision and loved that they communicated over and over that they are NOT a coworking space.  You can read more about it  here in an article that Forbes did on the space.

What do you think about a collaboration space?  Is this the future or is this excessive?

If you're ever in New York and want to meet up, I've got the perfect place for you to meet me!  Guests are more than welcome!
