Yr1 Reimbursement Fund


Cloud85 is northern Berkshire County’s first co-working space.  Founded by Lever, a North Adams-based center for entrepreneurship and social innovation, Cloud85 was designed to provide an opportunity to create a sense of community and spark entrepreneurial synergies. The integration of spouses and partners creates professional connections in a shared work environment. Being a member of a dynamic group provides personal and professional fulfillment through the opportunity to connect, share and collaborate.

Cloud85 provides a down-to-earth, roll-up-your-sleeves environment with all the necessary business amenities at affordable rates for independent professionals who seek their own dynamic community.  Cloud85 provides access to dedicated office space, common workspace, conference rooms, uninterrupted wifi, office equipment, and COFFEE.

Cloud85 is in downtown North Adams at 85 Main Street, second floor.

Cloud85 was established in North Adams to be part of the spirit of revitalization and development of a creative culture. The city is focused on organically creating a vibrant enclave within the northern Berkshires. MASS MOCA and Mass College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) are key partners and have created exciting initiatives fostering a culturally diverse and creative community.
