Mentors and leadership at Co:Lab are here to share their experiences and guide you through unique challenges that are often overlooked. Co:Lab is founded by a program of Florida West, in partnership with Pensacola State College.
From office space and equipment, to meeting clients, making connections, attending workshops, entertaining and more, we are set to make running a business easier.
We’re located right in downtown Pensacola. A perfect location for restaurants, brainstorming strolls and be fueled by the promise of a city in the midst of a renaissance.

Rates begin at $12/sq. ft.
We have 22,500 sq. ft., on three floors – enough space for your business to grow and succeed.
We want early stage high-growth companies. Our mission is to help these companies become more successful by providing affordable, private office space, mentors, business services and serendipitous opportunities. Our goal further expands to develop companies that will employ more people from our area; companies that will benefit our community.
Co:Lab launched in 2008 as the Gulf Coast Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) partnering with Pensacola State College and the Greater Pensacola Chamber of Commerce as part of their economic development effort.
Our modest beginnings of two flagship tenants grew quickly and in 2011 we expanded to 15,000 sq. ft. and two floors in PSC’s downtown campus. Through the years we’ve maintained an occupancy of more than 80% helping more than 26 unique businesses, each in varying stages of growth and development.
Our six graduate businesses are the Analyst Group, Engineering and Planning Resources (EPR), Robotics Unlimited, Pay Sell, Clearstream and ReVera Services.
Currently we have 12 member companies who, along with our graduates, have employed hundreds of people while growing their businesses within our friendly confines.
