About Us

CoLab is a shared office, or coworking, space in Pawtuxet Village (Cranston, Rhode Island) for people to connect and develop their careers and their lives. The CoLab community is intended to provide an uplifting and professional atmosphere for remote workers, start-ups and small businesses. 

CoLab is especially tailored for people looking to get out of their house and have a beautiful inspiring environment to get work done. CoLab provides that sweet spot at the intersection of an office space, a coffee shop, and a neighborhood central hub. Members aren’t just gaining entrance to the physical space when they join. They are gaining entrance into a community of like-minded self starters, as well as tapping into a wellspring of resources to help them improve themselves and their business. With our friendly staff on hand, there is always someone to greet you when you come in, to say hi and ask how your day is going, and get you a cup for some fresh coffee.

Our Team
Our Founder, Dave Counts (pictured above), is an entrepreneur and remote worker himself. Having been a member of coworking spaces in the past, as a contract programmer and app developer, he has always seen the value of having a community around you while you work.

CoLab Community Manager Jake Heffern is a digital marketing consultant with over 15 years of professional experience in the real estate, sports, retail, restaurant, entertainment and legal industries. In that role, Jake helps small businesses to increase their public profile and/or business prospects, and he looks forward to helping many others achieve their professional goals in the future.

At CoLab, Jake is focused on increasing our profile throughout the state, building a strong member community, and planning events in our amazing waterfront event room. When he’s not in front of a computer, you’ll probably find Jake on a local basketball court playing, coaching or training.

Elizabeth Fournier has been a nanny for many years, specializing in tutoring and helping with schooling for homeschool families and is now excited to be working at CoLab, helping to make it a great place for clients to work and network together. She loves traveling, meeting new people and making new friends. When she is not spending time with friends and family, she is an avid Ultimate Frisbee enthusiast and reader.
