About Us

The Mission

The mission of The Well is to provide a diverse community with opportunities and resources to collaborate and network through education, entertainment, and culturally inspired programming.

The Vision

The Well is a high-design flexible workspace used by a diverse community of independent professionals, startups, and teams from small and large businesses. Different from coworking or executive office suites, The Well is a purpose-built environment that provides members with a variety of areas to focus, collaborate, learn and innovate at any given time. By re-imagining the traditional workspace, The Well gives our members the greatest opportunities for productivity and success.

A firm commitment to downtown development, redevelopment, historic preservation, cultural amenities, and an exceptional business-friendly environment has helped Lakeland to thrive for 130 years. Growth and progress exemplify our city all the while maintaining a sense of history and a hometown feel.
