If you travel often, work remotely or need a place to hang your coats while your team works away from their office, you’ll be used to the idea of co-working spaces. As the world becomes more digital, co-working spaces and the communities that they build are becoming more of a thing and some of them offer bigger benefits than just a desk to work at.
In the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Beverly Hills and Culver City, dots SPACE is one co-working space with all the bells and whistles that every entrepreneur, professional and small business needs to take it to the next level.

The like-minded individuals and teams that work at dots SPACE welcome new members and they’re all there to learn, build and grow.
Why Dots Space Was Created
The founder of dots SPACE, Yoann Bohbot, had the vision to create a space that was warm, welcoming and friendly while maintaining a professional atmosphere. The motto of the space is “Learn. Work. Meet. Grow.” A concept that was crafted to support startups set up, grow and diversify their business from California to around the world.
Dots SPACE offers a service beyond the majority of co-working spaces. They have a support infrastructure with dedicated entrepreneurs, mentors and advisors to help the entire community with any problems. The key element to dots SPACE is helping the community become the best they can be.

Private desks for teams and private offices that are isolated by floor to ceiling glass partitions. The well-lit, creative design of the offices ensures that productivity is at its peak, at all locations.
Dots SPACE doesn’t do regular phone booths, they have mixed it up and created a brainstorming room to help creativity and productivity flow. This room has acoustical panels and whiteboards to allow members to make calls and write down all their noteworthy ideas.
The Additional Benefits
Co-working spaces are often limited to hot desks and offices, but dots SPACE is just what every budding entrepreneur and small business needs.
