Affinity Lab is an entrepreneurial launch platform serving a rich community of Washington DC businesses, non-profits and start-ups. The Lab manages the shared operational needs of its member organizations, allowing them to better focus on mission and execution. Think of it as “shared office space meets incubator meets entrepreneurial club-house.”

Along with the managed business infrastructure, membership at Affinity Lab also means being a part of a community of coworkers a culture of people, a circle of friends, who are also in the process of developing their entrepreneurial businesses and organizations. When members see connections, they often partner with one another, backstopping and expanding each other’s capabilities and skills or forming entirely new ventures.

Over our 9+ years we have had more than 125 organizations pass through our doors, 85% of them still exist and are growing today. Depending on the age of the member company or organization, Affinity Lab Members are 4x to 10x+ more likely to succeed and grow than non-Affinity Lab Members.
