Betaworks is opening a social club in New York in the hopes of connecting like-minded techies

John Borthwick, founder and CEO of Betaworks—the investment firm that incubated companies such as Giphy and Chartbeat—is opening a club space called Studios to help tech-oriented creatives, academics and entrepreneurs meet.

Studios has been designed to function like social club rather than a coworking office. There will be no desks and only a handful of private meeting rooms. The space will offer a flexible lounge with booths and casual seating as well as on-site concierges that will help members with shared interests connect.

The Studios business will be run by Daphne Kwon, the former CFO of Goop and Oxygen Media. Kwon will be selecting the first 10,000 founding members who are focused on the tech community, building better products and the humanization of technology.

Each member will be required to pay $225 per month to be part of what Kwon hopes to be a national network of builders. The first Studio location will be in the Meatpacking District of New York City. The company hopes to expand in future into other non-coastal U.S. cities with budding tech industries.

While Studios does have its own niche, it joins the ranks of established clubs like Soho House and community-oriented coworking spaces like WeWork.
