The mix of creative workspace, events, classes (over 175 in 2011), and advisors from places like Andreesen Horowitz, Blue Run Ventures and Twilio give pariSoma members a rewarding work experience. The space features a wrap-around mezzanine with permanent desks that look over the main area, and more flexible, open space. Other cool factors: A hanging casing of a 737 jet airplane, a vintage Bell Atlantic phone booth, and a couple of Google bikes for coworkers to use. The pariSoma facility is used by more than 120 members and 60 companies, most of which are tech start-ups. PariSoma is owned and operated by faberNovel, a consulting company that helps big companies think and act like small start-ups.
