Complete Office Environment

The differences between a FlexTable Membership, Workstation Membership and Private Office Membership are mostly based on the size of desks and exclusivity of work space.

All Members have the same access and benefits to a Complete Office Environment, nothing is a la carte, as everything is included.

1 Gbps Internet Connection Increases Productivity, Provides Competitive Advantage

All Members have access to our 1 Gbps high speed Internet connection (Yes thats right, 1 gigabit per second!).

Private Office Members have additional access to a dedicated Ethernet connection, but ALL Members have access to these high speeds through our enterprise grade Wi-Fi access points spread throughout the office. Most medium sized corporations, especially small startup companies, don’t/can’t spend the thousands of dollars per month to have access to these high bandwidth speeds. Our 1 Gbps Internet connection is a tremendous asset and advantage to our Member companies and really allows Members to work in different ways that were never possible before.

What are some of the benefits? They are endless, but for starters you can increase team productivity and collaboration by using more video conferencing such as Google Hangouts and Skype as part of your team’s daily communication. If you have not already, run your entire business using web service applications (such as Google Apps, MS Office Online, Dropbox, Evernote,…etc.) with confidence knowing bandwidth is available with virtually no latency. Or use light weight laptops with virtual desktops like Google Chromebooks or Amazon AWS Workspaces allowing you to save short term cash by moving upfront fixed costs to variable monthly costs.

A faster Internet connection can speed up development time, shortening software ship cycles and allowing your company to iterate product enhancements faster. Ultimately this makes your company more responsive to customer needs, market changes and more competitive.

Ken Olson, President of Digital Equipment Corporation was famously quoted in 1977 as saying, “There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in their home.” History has shown the inability for even the brightest people to anticipate what the future brings with the fundamental changes brought on by technology.

So as a Founders Floor startup Member with this asset now at your advantage, the question really becomes “What can your company build or innovate upon now that bandwidth is no longer a restraint?”

Flexible to the Way You Work

New ideas, innovative thinking and problem solving doesn’t always come by sitting at a desk all day. So we provide an environment that allows you to work the way that you like to work, by providing shared use of standing tables, walking treadmill desk or work comfortably from our lounge chairs and couches.

Sometimes though productivity slides and you really need a break. We provide different ways to relax and “recharge your inner batteries” by providing a pool table, foosball table, Razor scooters, or relaxing on couches in the lounge area gazing through our panoramic view of downtown San Jose. Or get some fresh air by walking or taking a scooter to Saint James Park just a block away or visit any of the hundreds of downtown restaurants, all while still being connected to the Internet with San Jose’s free downtown Wi-Fi.

Conveniently Located

Founders Floor is located in downtown San Jose in the center of Silicon Valley. With panoramic views from our 5th floor commercial building, Founders Floor is conveniently located for all business needs and social amenities. Commuting to Founders Floor is quick and easy. VTA Light Rail station is right outside our doors and connects to the CalTrain Diridon Station just a few blocks away. If you are driving, Highway 87 and Interstate 280 conveniently intersect at downtown, which we provide free* parking just blocks away.

*free parking will be available in November, initially on a limited basis.
