Why did you join Outlet? Describe your experience here so far.
bel Reyes has history with the building in its previous role as one of Sacramento’s only gallery with twenty plus passionately diverse studio artists. In the transition from gallery to coworking space, it was without a doubt that Innovation Bridge wanted to make the Outlet its home. Carly, Travis, and Harrison have created a unique coworking space that cannot be found anywhere else in Sacramento with their leadership, dedication to its members, service in ensuring the Outlet is a place you love to work, and constant replenishing of coffee that one may argue is the lifeline of the Outlet.
