The Mayor of Pasadena, Bill Bogaard, joined the co-founders of Cross Campus, the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, and Rising Realty Partners for a ceremonial ribbon cutting to signal the opening of Cross Campus, a collaborative, on-demand work space and business event venue, expansion into Pasadena.

Dubbed “the nerve center of Silicon Beach,” the flagship Cross Campus Santa Monica location is Los Angeles’ largest co-working space and business event venue, and has served as a hub for Los Angeles’ recent entrepreneurship boom. The facility famously hosted President Obama’s town hall with the technology community in October. Other events have included luminaries such as Elon Musk, Brad Feld of the Foundry Group, and David Cohen of TechStars.

As a business event venue, Cross Campus Old Pasadena is set up to host speaking engagements, launch events, hackathons, and workshops with a capacity of around 250 attendees. The building complex was recently purchased by Rising Realty Partners and technology entrepreneur David Sacks, who immediately launched a rebrand and technological upgrade of the complex together with 5×5 Telecom.

Pasadena is a hotbed of economically important tech activity. The area is already home to world-class institutions such as Caltech, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, and Art Center College of Design. The area contains great public transit and a density of food, retail and entertainment options, Pasadena has the raw materials to grow and we’re excited to help catalyze this growth.

Cross Campus Pasadena is located at 87 N. Raymond Avenue. For more information contact (310) 395-3500 or email info@crosscamp.us.
