Science and Startups in Symbiosis

A place to experiment, build together, and transform ideas into companies. Located in the heart of Kendall Square Cambridge.

Membership Benefits

As residents at the Cambridge Innovation Center, Green Light Labs members have access to all the goodies in the heart of Kendall Square. Want to impress a client? Book a swanky conference room overlooking the city. Hungry? There's plenty of organic junk food and ice creams to eat (we're a fan of the unlimited supply of M&M's restocked every morning by the candy fairy!) Need to refresh yourself at 2am or after biking to work? Take a warm shower!

Of course, there are all the important requirements of a work space: desks, aeron chairs, printers, copiers, faxes, private phone booths, meeting rooms, rock-solid internet, and, most importantly, the bunk bed "nap area".

Green Light Labs members also have access to the "hardware room" with a 3D printer and miscellaneous equipment to play with, as well as insurance for parties, events, and classes.

But we'd say the most important benefit is the people you meet! In the end, it's all about the community. Members-only events to brainstorm, hack, and network.
