Art, Technology & Entrepreneurship: Mindshare finds a permanent new home at Cross Campus
Cross Campus, which has emerged as a prominent player in the Los Angeles shared workspace arena, has officially hired Mindshare LA Founder Dougie Campbell (2nd to the Presidents left) as its full time “Experience Director”. As part of his role, Dougie will continue to host events across a growing network of Cross Campus locations as well as spearheading the launch of its brand new campus in Old Pasadena slated to open in early 2015.
And it’s a fortuitous partnership. Since 2006, Mindshare LA has become a mecca for intellectuals, artists, scientists and other forward thinking characters who are looking for inspiration and connection across this vast city. Meanwhile, Cross Campus was founded in 2012 with a goal of reinventing the workplace which it achieves by building technology-equipped locations that are designed to inspire, connect and empower its diverse roster of members.
Even President Barack Obama, pictured above when he visited Cross Campus back in October 2014, sees the huge impact of what Cross Campus is building when he addressed a packed crowd of bright eyed creative professionals:
“When I come to places like this, it inspires me and reminds me of why I am chronically optimistic about the future of America.”
– President Barack Obama
And we can’t help but feel the same way. After years of bouncing between locations Mindshare LA has now been given a homebase, a place to grow and to do what we do best: hosting unique events and connecting energized people.
