Testimonials: "As an outstanding startup community and facility, I just held a seminar there for 40 startup founders and business attorneys and could not have been more pleased with how conducive the environment was for learning, networking and socializing.

We would really prefer not to write down any rules. But we need to remind everyone that you need to book all of the time including when your arrive and start to set up and until the very end when clean up has been completed. Enjoy our space and share photos with your associates! Ideally, you leave the space nice and tidy.
Seaton is the Host every renter wants and needs. He is genuinely interested in making sure your needs are met and you are well set up in your space to make your event perfect. I found him very accessible and easy to contact with any questions. We of course also LOVED the space and hopefully will have an excuse to use it again!
The space is great and the host is even greater! Everything you need to host any kind of event is there. The space is designed and laid out well, plus well tended by Seaton. Grateful we found it! Thank you!
SURF has a really great space in this area. It's easy to get in, setup, and use. The amenities (chairs, chair types, projector, screen, and of course the views) are great too. We'll be back for more of our meetups here in the future!
We are so appreciative for Seaton and all at SURF for sharing their space with us and our guests! The modular design and layout of the space, the views, and the audio-visual support all aided in the success of our event! The timely responses to all of our questions was also so greatly appreciated! We would love to work again with SURF! Thank you, SURF!
This place is so cool! Seaton was super accommodating and overall awesome. We had a couple of technical hiccups but we figured them out in no time. The place may be a bit hard to find but not with detailed instructions. THANK YOU AGAIN, Seaton! :)
When working with Architecture and Engineering firms, aesthetics matter. For our recent client event, the SURF Incubator (specifically the SURF Cafe) offered the perfect space full of natural light, a lovely view of the Sound, and living plants in every corner tenderly cared for by the owners. The space accommodated our group of 35 comfortably with room to spare for a hands-on workshop. Access to the kitchen was ideal for our catering team and made the meals throughout the day feel seamless. Seaton and his team were easy to work with, responsive, and helpful both before, during, and after the event. We always ask our attendees to share their "kudos" during the event wrap up; the first one shared was about how lovely the venue was this year. I'm so glad to have found this forward-thinking event space and would book again in a heartbeat.
