mission*social, a unique workspace for social enterprises, small businesses and entrepreneurs in San Francisco, has new space available for rent. mission*social is more than affordable office space and shared resources – it provides the opportunity for informal dialogue and collaboration among the organizations.

mission*social is conveniently located in the heart of the SOMA district at 972 Mission Street. It features an open loft layout with hardwood floors, full access to video conference rooms, high-speed Internet, a freight elevator, pool table, and a full kitchen, along with the bevy of other amenities no coworking space should be without. We are currently upgrading mission*social with booths for private phone and internet conferencing, an additional conference room, and new/updated AV equipment in all conference rooms.

So what are you waiting for? Join innovative organizations like Catapult Design, Digital Divide Data, Inveneo, and Meedan to share ideas, tips, and advice in person. As Google confirms:

Information is shared most easily and effectively among office neighbors, even at an Internet company where instant messaging and e-mail are generally preferred to face-to-face discussion.

Testing Unifi: mission*social gets a WiFi Upgrade

At Inveneo, we like to test new technologies thoroughly before we deploy them in the field, including installing and using them in our offices. In Silicon Valley, this is called “eating your own dog food” and it is a time-honored way to drive innovation that is actually practical and useful.

Recently, we heard about Ubiquiti UniFi, which is a WiFi system combining carrier class performance, unlimited scalability, and a virtual management controller all at disruptively low pricing. To test it out, we’ve installed 4 Ubiquiti UniFi access points throughout mission*social, the shared workspace for social enterprises organized by Inveneo.

UniFi solves many local WiFi issues

There are six social enterprises and countless visitors who work out of mission*social, and Inveneo manages 3 local wifi networks to support them: 1 for Inveneo staff, 1 for mission*social staff, and 1 for visitors. Each of these networks has different bandwidth and security requirements.

Previously, we had consumer grade access points where one access point was its own independent wireless network – we had to manage each access point separately and users had to manually switch between networks. With Unifi, each of the four new access points we installed will serve the three wireless networks seamlessly.

Users will be able to freely roam from one AP’s coverage area to another, and the UniFi “virtual controller” will make sure the user is always connected to the access point with the strongest coverage. We are still working through a learning curve with the UniFi controller management platform, but the interface is nice, and it allows us to show access point status and coverage overlaid on a floorplan of our office.

As an added bonus, installation of the access points was pretty painless, and once installed, they look much more professional than installations we’ve seen done with consumer gear. Best of all, UniFi gives us enterprise-level WiFi at consumer prices.

mission*social is proud to welcome JustGood.tv and Green WiFi to the premier collaborative workspace for social enterprises in San Francisco. They join Samasource, Catapult Design and Inveneo on the 5th floor of 972 Mission Street.

mission*social features an open loft layout with hardwood floors and a freight elevator combined with access to video conference rooms and high-speed Internet and a number of other shared servces. But the major benefit of mission*social is the ability to work alongside cutting-edge social enterprises, sharing ideas, tips, and advice in person.

mission*social collaboration

One example of cross-organization collaboration is a recent Inveneo-Samasource partnership to expand Mission 4636.

Samasource is translating text messages from earthquake victims in Haiti so relief workers can better understand the conditions there. In an effort to expand their 4636 program so Haitians can do the translations, they needed to ship computers to their Haitian workers, but found the logistical challenge of shipping to a disaster zone daunting.

Enter Inveneo, which has its own own Haiti Response. They added Samasoure’s equipment to their own resupply shipment, and arranged for express delivery to Port-au-Prince. This quick collaboration saved Samasource valuable time and much headache.
