Since its creation in July 2014, CIC Boston has built a vibrant startup community in downtown Boston’s revitalized Financial District. With a CIC presence on ten floors we offer a dynamic range of fully furnished workspaces, a high-tech makerspace, industry-specialized communities, and premier event venues. This growing site serves as an experimental space for our team to explore how a CIC innovation campus can flourish within a centrally-located office tower.
CIC Boston is home to a number of specialized community spaces, tailored to support specific industry needs in social entrepreneurship, food innovation, design, and digital fabrication.

District Hall is the world’s first civic innovation center and a programming platform for Boston’s innovation community. It provides a collaborative, innovative event venue, public workspace, and programming hub designed to bring people together at every level. In 2016, District Hall hosted over 780 events and 80,000 people. The Venture Café Foundation was involved in the District Hall planning process and continues to manage operations and programming since District Hall’s opening in 2013. The City of Boston invited the Cambridge Innovation Center to create an active innovation hub concept that became District Hall.
