If Starbucks has become the de facto headquarters for the office-less entrepreneurial startup set, then Krash is quickly becoming their residence. The co-housing spaces, founded by Phil Freemont-Smith and his wife Jennifer in 2012, take communal living out of the post-hippie era and into the modern world of business. Krash has properties in Boston, New York, and Washington, D.C., with more coming as they push their model westward. While each property is unique, they all offer clean, minimal sleeping spaces paired with comfy common areas, fresh linens, a fully stocked fridge, and the company of other up-and-comers who seek a deeper networking experience than a mere lunch or cup of coffee. Typical stays range from 3 to 6 months, although a “K2” membership gets you the keys to all the Krash pads for as long as you like. Weekly family-style meals and regular presentations from various business leaders add a warm and inspirational vibe. Learn more at Krash.io.
