Our work

The Grove

At Groundworks, we have a history of supporting entrepreneurs by providing them with access to quality workspace, coaching and mentoring, a shared knowledge network, peer-to-peer training, and a collaborative ecology. Our collaborative workspaces, known as the Grove, have the potential to launch initiatives that will benefit communities and cities and will drive economic development.


Story Lab

Story Lab is a facilitated weekend event to help you author the story you want to live. At Story Lab, we help you discover how to create a vocation that is less about what you do, and more about who you are. Our vocation should be about creating a life - not just earning a living. Living with great intentionality creates vision. This workshop will help you begin to live your story and author your personal mission.
