Community Rules

  1. Cooperative Workspace Rental Critera

    Welcome to the Urban Matrix Project!

    Criteria must be met in order to become and maintain a cooperative workspace rental. Please contact us now to schedule a brief telephone interview at 408.916.1609 if you have not already done so. Read Privacy/Security, Terms of Service, NO Smoking, Cell Phone...and all other rules before submitting your project materials for consideration. We safeguard the privacy of undocumented citizens to the best of our promise.

    Designated Space

    You may place your project identifiers in your personal area; and we will have other signage areas at the premises.

    Renters whom elect designated desk/chair rates are required to commit to at minimum 6-months but payments can be made monthly rather than lump sum if you prefer this arrangement. Rent payment date can be adjusted to meet your needs; and can be temporarily negotiated if you have financial need based on CEO approval; rather than cancel your space with us if this can be avoided. Be sure to elect a cost you can afford. Rental termination must be submitted in writing by either party in a 30-day period; however, we are willing to adjust terms via telephone if necessary per urgent circumstances. We are glad to provide a positive "good standing" reference for you upon your departure; and you may return at any time under the same rental terms p/availability which means we won't charge a higher rate within a 12-month duration unless you upgrade/downgrade space capacity.

    Workspace is both reserved by renters and offered as first-come walk-in basis. And we maintain consistent pricing based on fair market value. We invite only 3 business services trade positions per year (partial time) by written MOU. If you possess keen technology, publishing, social media, marketing, or other professional talent to promote our amazing gig... let us know!

    Other Expectations & Requirements

    [1] Please provide a copy of business license, photo identification, current contact information for notifications; sign hold-harmless and damage agreements as requested by the CEO. You will be required to also sign a mutual non-disclosure agreement if you are elected by the CEO to have access to the member content, database, or control permissions. [2] Park in designated areas only and do not sleep overnight or use our facility to cook as a home kitchen or groom. [3] Do not use or store overt chemical-based materials (obviously dry paint such as artistic works is an exception), large containment of water or earthen matter on the premises. [4] Do not engage in sexual activity, harassment, or volatile behavior toward any individual; nor be federally convicted of sexual assault or a weapons charge within 5 years of becoming a workspace renter; nor have an active criminal warrant for your arrest; nor be a fugitive. [5] Kindly engage at our monthly Urban Matrix Project "speak-up" to keep it real in authentic communications.

  3. Workspace & Project Benefits

    Check out perks and benefits below and review our primary website!

    We know you have free public library access, and other workspace and incubator choices and options:

    Visionary Advising

    The very best perk of renting Cooperative Workspace at the Urban Matrix Project is that you receive the amazing Intuitive Business Analysis and transformational leadership expertise of CEO, Violet Kashewa...1x monthly for 15-minutes at no cost while you are here.

    Project Mentoring

    We support your mentor search with the user-friendly, award-winning global Micromentor platform so you can customize exactly the type of project support relationships you require at any given project stage at your scheduling convenience.

    Designated Webpage & Social Media Networking

    Urban Matrix Project wants our cooperative workspace tenants to enjoy a designated "urban impact" customized, functionality-integrated webpage for your project: Grassroots organizing, public campaigner, volunteerism, and other apps are available. Although we monitor all webpages and administer general support we are neither technicians nor in the website business. Also...we do NOT manage your social media accounts...but we do kindly request that you integrate your mailing lists so to widely support the benefit of all. When you decide to move on you take your lists with you.

    Please submit only high-quality profile/portfolio exhibits with 3 maximum articles, videos, prototypes, etc. Contact us with any questions or requests.

    Events Showcase

    Host your events here (additional requirements apply) and gain visibility even if another project is hosting an event here. We also showcase our projects at our annual expos, public training, and via other marketing opportunities, materials, etc. You pay either no cost or minimal cost to attend these events.

    Project Award

    We offer a specified project award each year to as many projects as possible that can be freely allocated to support your good in the world.

  4. No Tobacco Smoking

    NO Tobacco Smoking... on Urban Matrix Project premises or parking lot. Cooperative Workspace was established specifically to control exposure to tobacco smoke, chemicals, phylate-perfumes, and designated vaping (for medical cannabis only) because the CEO is a documented MCS disabled individual. Sorry, but we won't rent workspace to you if are a tobacco consumer. We are much less concerned about medical cannabis use in an agreed upon location per patient rights verification. PLEASE ask your team or regular visitors to avoid tobacco before arriving and to respect this critical rule that applies also to excessive personal vanity products.

  5. Fragrance Free Workspace

    Please go extremely easy if not altogether eliminate personal vanity products: Shaving cologne, hair products, laundry soaps, etc. Try using quality unscented natural care, essential, and coconut oil products instead, etc.

    Urban Matrix Project Cooperative Workspace was created specifically to avoid ADA disability triggers... The CEO will "call you out" if she has headaches from anything on your person that is obtrusive or invasive that might cause chemical reactions...See No Smoking rule. Thank you!

  6. Religious & Project Solicitation

    Faith is a part of urban life and society. We are an interfaith safe space and allow prayer and general conversation about faith in the Urban Matrix Project. Solicitation of your "urban impact" project materials is allowed in your designated desk area and in other designated cooperative workspace signage areas if you are a renter. But your friend's stuff is not. Regular guests and members listed in our Partner Network may also post material at our physical premises p/available space and CEO approval.

  7. Walk-in Guests

    Walk-in guests may purchase an all day-pass for $15. Coffee and treats are extra...but the internet is free. And membership linkage via our Partner Network resource area is at no obligation. You are required to acknowledge our community rules. And sign-in so we can remind you to call your mother...and confidently call you by the wonderful name she likely gave you. Although we will not designate a member webpage for your 'day-use status' or allow you to utilize designated desk/chair areas intended for our renters you can find a comfortable spot. But if you do intend to be at the Urban Matrix Project more than 2X p/week, pay the Openspace rate to receive project mentoring and a designated webpage.

  8. Dispute & Conflict Resolution

    Urban Matrix Project is an intellectual property of New Definition Leadership LLC., Violet Kashewa. NDL has a registered trademark with the USPTO; and is incorporated in Washington State USA. Disputes regarding member webpage usage, content, etc., are managed via Nation Builder so be sure to read Privacy, Terms of Service, etc., before submitting a formal grievance.

    In case of member incident please contact us in writing with specific information so we can work to quickly resolve disputes in a consistent legal and ethical manner. Contact Us: Or 408.916.1609.
