About CityHack

Thank you for taking the time to learn about us.

Like many people, I love Vancouver, for it has so much to offer – natural beauty, diversity, food, and of course the Stanley Park. What’s not loveable is perhaps how expensive it is to live and work here.  

It is my humble opinion that lack of affordability is a function of accessibility and distribution. I hear stories of small businesses struggling to find affordable office space and freelancers having to work from home because offices are just too cost prohibitive. Then I see beautiful venues left unused all over the city because venues owners tell me they don’t see sufficient demand all day. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a matchmaker that connects the demand and supply of such spaces? This is why CityHack was born.

As our working population becomes increasingly mobile, we can connect to our work from anywhere we like. While that creates flexibility, it’s an imperfect model. Working from home can be fraught with distractions. Coffee shops don’t cut it for many professionals either. Meanwhile, venues across cities face increasing costs and must be creative in optimizing the use of their space. 

CityHack re-imagines urban spaces to fill inefficiencies in underutilized spaces. CityHackers get an alternative to their home offices and coffee shops. Venue Partners get an additional revenue stream and exposure. The city operates more effectively, and its residents thrive. 

I hope to greet you at one of our venues opening this fall. Give CityHack an opportunity to make you feel more at home in this city we love.
