Our Story

StartMart began with the mission to support Cleveland’s entrepreneurial community.

Back in 2015, the startup accelerator and micro-VC firm, Flashstarts, opened StartMart to provide flexible space solutions for early-stage startups. As Flashstarts’ portfolio companies grew and their need for space increased, it became clear that a coworking space was needed in downtown Cleveland.

Since its beginning, StartMart has been located in the iconic Terminal Tower and has grown to serve small businesses, freelancers, students, and entrepreneurs. The relationship between StartMart and Flashstarts remains strong, making us the only coworking space in Cleveland with an in-house accelerator.
