We get it. Every dollar matters, especially when you’re building your dream.

 

We want to provide every founder, maker, and creator in Fort Lauderdale with a home to connect, grow, and build.  To do that, we’ve launched our Community membership for $100 per month, offering all of the club perks of General Provision when a daily workspace is not needed. We like to think of GP as a gym for founders and makers–You have a gym membership for physical health, but are you investing in something to accelerate your creative and professional health? Here’s how to join GP, and come out way ahead at the end of the month:

 

1. Skip Starbucks, and fuel up in our member-only coffee shop instead.

 

Come to the club for FREE unlimited Well’s Coffee (yes, really!), and never think about the lifetime value of your coffee habit again. Espresso, Lattes, and a magical menu of specialty coffee drinks await you, all presented by our skilled, member-dedicated Baristas.

 

Value: $25 to $125 per month (we might have a problem). 

 

 

2. Grab a FREE Member lunch, and break bread with your people.

 

We feed our members all the time, but mark your calendars for the 2nd Thursday of every month, as we hand pick Fort Lauderdale’s best local restaurants for an epic meal together. Collaborate and cut a deal with a fellow club member, and the ROI is a lot more than a full belly.

 

Value: $20 for lunch plus Next Month’s Revenue in Deal Flow

 

 

3. Work out some tension with a FREE massage.

 

The third Wednesday of every month is your time to cash in on our member massage time from local miracle workers, Flexation Body Work and Massage. I am not sure how much you typically pay your masseuse, but I know that you will not be paying ours a single dollar. It’s included in your membership for FREE.

 

Value: $75 per hour

 

 

4. Pitch your dream client from a meeting room.

 

We know that you have that big opportunity around the corner, and we know that you are a little nervous about how you are going to pull this presentation off from a busy coffee shop. Come to one of our club locations, our community team will treat your client like royalty, and you can focus on planning your next vacation from the windfall.

 

Value: What’s the value of a first impression?

 

 

5. Find Your Co-Founder at happy hour.

 

Did we mention that we have FREE craft beer on tap? We also schedule regular happy hours to make sure that you can mingle with some pretty amazing humans. Invite a guest, or have a beer by yourself. We’re not judging, and you’re not paying.

 

Value: $35 to $85 per bar tab

 

 

6. Get your flow on with a FREE Yoga Session.

 

We know that to do your best work you have to take care of your body and mind. We have a monthly wellness program, and have invited Lululemon and other local yoga stars to lead member-only flows on the last Friday of every month–no charge to our members.

 

Value: $30 per class

 

 

7. Ask a best selling author an honest question.

 

We’ve held over 250 events in our club since our launch, and we work hard to bring thought-leading events exclusively to our members. Best selling authors, entrepreneurs that have scaled global brands, politicians, and local heroes have all told their stories to our community. Don’t miss our monthly events if you are going to squeeze all of the value out of your club membership.

 

Value: Once in a lifetime encounter

 

 

Did we mention that you can show up to hunker down and get some work done at either one of our club locations? You will not find an office with more soul and authenticity than GP. If you are seeing the light, and are ready to walk in the door, click below to join as a Commuter for $100 per month.

Cocktails for Humanity featured in Sun Sentinel

On September 29th, Cocktails for Humanity, a member driven pop-up bar for a good cause at General Provision, partnered with the Broward Public Library Foundation for the third year in a row. Over 400 guests were able to enjoy a variety of alcoholic beverages and raised a total of $4,000! All proceeds went to programs like Books ‘N’ Bears which helps out disadvantaged preschool children during the holidays. We love seeing our community get some exposure, so here is the Sun Sentinel’s article covering the event.

GP Featured in National Geographic!

General Provision made National Geographic as one of the best places to visit while in Fort Lauderdale that goes above and beyond the typical spring break destinations. Putting the popular beautiful beaches on the sidelines, they highlight amazing places to check out. Whether you’re into historic sites, the late night bar scene, or just people watching, this article gives you wonderful recommendations for things to do in Fort Lauderdale, and we’re thrilled to have made the cut.

 

General Provision’s “sleek” and “saloon-inspired” space for co-working was featured in their list as a great place to stop by in the four blocks of FATVillage. Make sure to check us out in their article “Discover the Best of Fort Lauderdale“!

GP x Prism: Featured Culture Crusaders

Prism Creative Group’s Culture Crusaders headed to Fort Lauderdale to explore the city’s most fascinating small businesses and created a list of the best places to eat, drink, and hang out.

 

General Provision was featured in this article as the first and “arguably [the] coolest” co-working space in the Fort Lauderdale. As we welcomed our friends from the 305, they were able to take a look at our incredible atmosphere along with our private and public collaboration spaces.

 

We, here at General Provision, would like to give a big thank you to Prism for stopping by and checking out our space during their trip around the Fort Lauderdale area! Check us out under “A Burgeoning Arts District” and “Hangs & Things to Do” at

Coding Courses Added to Membership Offering

It’s been our mission at General Provision to build a tech ecosystem right here in our city of Fort Lauderdale. Accessing technical talent and filling technical jobs is a critical part of building an innovation economy, so GP worked to establish Broward County’s first independent coding academy at our coworking space in 2015. Since then, we have watched nearly 100 new software developers change their lives by learning how to code. Broward County continues to lead Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties in open tech jobs, and we are excited to announce that we are now fully integrating an on-demand coding curriculum as a part of our Membership offering .
