After announcing $4.75 million in funding from Madrona Capital Group earlier this year, The Riveter is gearing up for its Los Angeles debut this June at 2236 South Barrington Ave in West LA. This will be the first of three planned locations, scheduled to roll out between now and the end of the year.

The Riveter is an exciting new addition to LA's coworking scene, which seems to have something for everyone – tech bros, beauty/fashion bloggers, Hollywood socialites – oh, except everyday women in business. With its two locations in Seattle, The Riveter has demonstrated that they truly do put women first, without being an exclusive girls' club. Their diverse programming emphasizes women in business, with events that cover a broad range of business-related topics from raising venture capital to learning Asian business etiquette.

But perhaps the largest gap The Riveter is ready to fill in a city of creatives like LA, is flexible memberships, that have historically deterred early stage entrepreneurs from committing to any of the many coworking spaces popping up around LA. In addition to their full-time and part-time options, flexible plans include a $99 events-only membership, a $40 Day Pass, and $150 for 10 flexible hours a month.

The Riveter has already begun scheduling events and selling memberships ahead of its planned opening on June 3rd, including Yes She Can's June Monthly Meetup. Organizations interested in partnering with The Riveter can email baily.hancock@theriveter.co.
