CoLab is a coworking space, event venue and resource hub for innovation in the Roanoke and New River Valley. We are located in Grandin Village and in Downtown Roanoke. 

“The CoLab is an amazing resource for entrepreneurs. Every day I find new opportunities that arise from interactions with other CoLab'ers, and they are always happy to share ideas, and lend expertise. So glad we have this here in Roanoke!” Philip Tompkins - CEO of We Evolve Us

Who Works at CoLab?

“Having the CoLab here in Grandin Village has taken one of Southwest Virginia’s most vibrant neighborhoods and made it even more relevant for our region.  The CoLab is rapidly rising to the forefront of our community’s progressive movement, and is managed, leased-by, and visited by a growing number of entrepreneurs, movers and shakers, and change agents that are at the forefront of Roanoke’s positive growth curve.  Whether you are a neighbor, a member, or a visitor, you will always find the most stimulating individuals and ideas being hatched, shared, or manifested inside the CoLab’s walls.

As a proud member, the Grandin Theatre Foundation seeks to continually take advantage of the wonderful opportunities and benefits the CoLab offers.  We use the space for our board meetings, committee meetings, and impromptu gatherings if we need to pop-in and workshop an idea.  We look forward to an even more formalized relationship in the future as we focus on utilizing the space for teenage education in the cinematic arts.   This facility and the people who manage it are truly at the edge of great things happening in Roanoke.” 

- Ian Fortier, Executive Director, Grandin Theatre Foundation
