Christina is passionate about providing space for othersto grow mentally, physically and professionally.

Who Is VanCubers Co-Working & Shared Office Spaces?
VanCubers is a division of MobiBlossom Solutions Inc. A local software development start up company.

Our goal at VanCubers is to provide a class A co-working space as a greatly reduced price.
The current rental rate for the downtown core is sitting at $42.76 per square foot. This means if you require a 200 sq foot office, your monthly rent would be $8552 per month. Our office is laid out in a way that our private offices can comfortably hold 5 employees in just 96 square feet. Since the rest of the office is shared, your private space is what you are paying for.
But not to worry, no need to pay that hefty downtown square footage price. Check out our prices and come see the place for yourself. VanCubers is a very affordable place to rent a room for your office. Did we also mention, the furniture is included too?

VanCubers does not sell anything. In fact we rent. We rent desks, phones, offices and even our address. VanCubers is known to be a co-working and shared office space. One of our very popular products is our hot desk.
A hot desk is a desk that does not have an owner and its tenant is constantly changing. We rent desks in our hot desk room by the day, week or month. The more you work with us the cheaper the desks become.
We also offer dedicated desks, for people who what a permanent place to sit, throw up a few monitors and have a place to lock up some personal work material and other company items.
