Our story

Makeshifters are freelancers, independent business owners, and small teams; they make with their heads and think with their hands. We were founded in San Francisco in 2012 and the second location in Brooklyn followed in 2014.

Our members are influencers in their field, including copywriters, photographers, bloggers, social media experts, accountants, PR consultants, brand consultants, retailers, community managers, event planners, web designers, as well as makers of all stripes. They enjoy the amenities of a coworking space to get work done, but also support each other’s projects and find reprieve from the isolation many experience outside the bounds of a traditional workplace.

Makeshift places a great deal of emphasis on peer education and mentoring as well as connecting subject-matter experts to bolster each others’ businesses. Our innovative programming is designed to encourage cross-disciplinary learning. The resulting environment is perfect for organically growing business and discovering opportunities for collaboration.
