We Build Communities
for Creative People
with Big Ideas.

How we live, learn and work has changed. Today’s students, entrepreneurs and workforce are seeking one thing: Relevance. That’s why we built Collective, to help them achieve relevance.

It's all about

And not just ours.

Listen to the Collective Good Podcast as we talk to the Place Makers, the professionals who are in the business of making college campuses places where people want to be. Each week we explore the future of the college campus in a very uncertain world.

The Engine.

Creating the future, together.

Collective has created a unique end-to-end learning, content and experiential platform that plugs right into existing and future student housing. Tenants and non-residents get access to live and virtual experiences they won’t receive anywhere else.

Health & Wellness

We all know a healthy lifestyle is critical to productivity and well being. Easier said than done, right? With student’s busy lives, it’s easy to skip proper nutrition, sleep and mindfulness. So what to do? Collective’s Health & Wellness program was designed specifically for students at this stage of life. Here they’ll find yoga, workouts, recipes and mindfulness techniques that are customizable and available 24/7. They’ll feel better, be more productive and maybe even smile a whole lot more.


Coffee shops are for plugging in your laptop. At Co.Work we’ve built a unique, co-working community where you can access more than just a desk. You also get access to business events, speakers and networking opportunities, like-minded entrepreneurs and yes, damn fine coffee too. It’s more than co-working, it’s an opportunity for growth. A creative environment filled with energy and enthusiasm. Membership levels vary from floating desks to conference rooms access, stage, studio and Peloton use all in our 24-hour, contemporary work spaces.

Collective X

X really does mark the spot. The spot where the campus experience has been reimagined. Introducing Collective X. Our digital-first model for lifelong learning and skills development. We partner with student housing developers, higher-ed institutions, and other community stakeholders to create an ecosystem that enhances learning outside the classroom. We are leading the shift in higher education to a more flexible hybrid model, merging experiential remote learning with face-to-face instruction.

New Venture Labs

A conscious approach to growing startups with the mentorship, resources, network and environment they need to launch, fund and grow. Here you’ll receive access to an investor syndicate, customized curriculum and coaching, tailored mentorship pairings and full-service innovation services.

Embarq Studios

You’ve got great ideas to build your brand and, you not only know that content is king, but you need lots of it. You also know that you lack the tools and solutions to capitalize and grow your audience network. That’s where we come in. Embarq produces high-quality content quickly and easily so you’ll have a consistent stream of ongoing content at your fingertips. We’ll also help you target and promote it. First, you tell us your goals. Then you can either provide us with raw footage that we will edit and maximize or, we’ll handle the production turnkey. Embarq is aimed at churning out relevant, dynamic content faster than anyone that not only looks and sounds great but effectively connects with your audience so you can maximize your revenue.


We bring our community to yours. What do we mean? Our team of dedicated leaders, entrepreneurs, marketers and technologists don’t just make camp in one location, we’re mobile and always available to you virtually and face to face. The Collective Community is more than just a label; it's our commitment that we are building something bigger than ourselves; helping local students with huge ideas and dreams find guidance so they can share them with the world. Yup, that’s what we mean.
