To help facilitate connections, MANP has launched this Shared Workspace Finder in collaboration with Elmina B. Sewall Foundation, Maine Initiatives, and Maine Philanthropy Center. 

This tool is intended to help connect organizations seeking office space with those who have space available (and to connect organizations interested in grouping up to find space on the commercial market together).

This tool should not be used by brokers to market commercial real estate, and is not intended for personal use in finding shared housing. 

How it Works

  1. Complete the form below.
  2. After completing the questionnaire, you will receive an email with a link to the spreadsheet showing all responses. The spreadsheet will be updated in real time as new responses are received.
  3. Using the list, you are encouraged to reach out to other organizations directly if you are interested in making a space-sharing connection. MANP and our partners do not facilitate conversations, suggest matches/partnerships, or offer real estate services/advice.
