Betahouse Is Closed—For Now

9/8/10

Betahouse, the Cambridge, MA-based co-working community and events space for tech startups in Central Square, has closed its doors as of August 31, says founder Jon Pierce. The group’s planned expansion to a new space in Cambridge fell through last month, a few weeks before its current lease ended. Pierce told Mass High Tech that he is putting the moving plans “on the back burner,” and that “the Betahouse community will live on virtually, and in some cases physically.” The group’s 20 or so entrepreneur tenants have moved on for now. Betahouse started in 2007, and was the first co-working space for entrepreneurs in the Boston area.

    I feel that betahouse will live on, and be reborn again before too long. Like any good friends, a little time apart won’t hurt us. Maybe like l0pht, it will become almost mythic.
