Hello !
We got sad news and good news. 
The sad news, for the first time in 5 years since we launched, we will temporarily close I/O SPACES starting today at 5pm and postponing The 50 Years Of African Innovation Exhibit. The Governor’s emergency order closing bars, restaurants, and gyms has been extended to shopping malls and gatherings of over ten people.
Unto the good news.
These are difficult times! But we have been working triple-hard to gather resources to help our local community through this. Check these out:  
MEMBER ACCESS & BILLING QUESTIONS 
  • I do essential work, can I come in? Since we can only host 10 people at all times during this period we will permitspecial access for essential work members, 7 members to request special access, will get continued workspace access,¬† certain conditions will apply!
  • Need to come get mail/packages/or stuff from the space?Leslie will be checking every day and notifying you of incoming mail. Please sign up for a 15 minute appointment here to schedule pickup. At this time, we are doing one at a time to maintain social distancing. We may expand that based on demand.
