Beta Collective was instrumental in spearheading the coworking movement South of the Fraser / Fraser Valley region which now has no less than 5 coworking spaces from Surrey to Chilliwack. Opened in 2014, Beta has since quadrupled in size to 8,000sf and has solidified its mission of being a Hub for Community Impact in the heart of Downtown Surrey. Its membership of nearly 150 active members is comprised of approximately 20% non-profits, and that number continues to climb — with the goal of doubling by 2022.
While community impact is at the very core of its business, Beta Collective’s mission goes far beyond profits. Cofounder Jason Wong was one of the founding members of the CoworkingBC Society which bands many of the coworking spaces across the province to advocate for greater engagement and policies around the startup community and the sharing economy as a whole.
Not only can small businesses have a launchpad to grow, but they’re also surrounded by like-minded people.
