Moritz Plassnig, Codeship / TechStars

"I love the personal aspect to being a Krasher. We all work so hard that having the support and social fun at our finger tips is an amazing asset."

Sandra Richter, MIT Media Lab

"Krash is awesome - it is like coworking but for living - sharing space with inspiring people without having to take care of things like buying milk for my coffee."

Laura D'Asaro, Harvard iLab

"Krash is a community of some of the most helpful and passionate people I've ever met. Launching a start-up would have been so much harder without Krash. I'm going to be a Krasher forever!"

Emil Lee, AppAcademy

"I'm a VC turned ROR student and love being surrounded by incredible people; innovators going through the same process/journey as I am. I'll be Krashing for life for sure."

The Cities


Life when you Krash

Krashpads are not just convenient places to stay in awesome cities. We bring the local innovation community right through your front door (or elevator!) for weekly events and introductions. We understand the rigorous schedules our Members uphold and we've designed a unique, turn-key housing solution to match it. Krash guarantees an opportunity to collaborate with like-minded peers and to immerse oneself into the startup economy all while maintaining a high quality of life... We're not afraid of a little fun on the side to keep things light either.

Find the Epicenter

Krashpads are strategically located at the cross section of the local start-up, innovation and investment communities. We love locating next to transportation hubs to ensure ease of access to all the major venues and players in a city. Stay tuned as new cities come online very soon.

What is included in my rent?

Krashpads are turn-key living solutions that come fully-furnished and include everything you need to hit the ground running. Access to first class events, 3 meals a week, business class internet, projectors, sound systems, extensive kitchenware, coffee, tea, an apple a day, olive oil, spices, shampoo, soap and full linen service. Just bring clothes (please). We got the rest.

How long can I stay?

If you're new to a city and not sure where to live, or who to live with to control expenses, Krash offers an ideal solution to get you initiated.

If you're looking to quickly accelerate your core network within a city, Krash is well suited to meet your needs as well.

Our parameters are that the stay should be between two (2) and six (6) months in duration. Optimal stays tend to be three (3) or four (4) months, giving residents enough time to develop lasting relationships and to transition on to their next stop.

Does a reference from a Krasher help my application’s chances?

Yes. Sometimes it takes one to know one and we weigh references from fellow Krashers very highly. Please make a note of who will serve as a reference in your application.(Make sure they know we’ll be calling.)

Other business and peer references may also bolster your application.
