How We Work

We work together. We connect, share, create, and help others do the same. Factory Campus was built on the idea that many minds are better than one, we believe in people who love what they do and want to create something great while surrounded by like-minded people in an innovative and creative space. After 6 years of being the Coworking Space GarageBilk, we have evolved to now being Factory Campus, in a new space, but with the same ideals. From freelancers, entrepreneurs, business nomads, corporate innovators, and startups, to well-established companies, teams, and international creatives, we believe in cultivating a community surrounded by innovators, makers, and visionaries.
