How To

Hi. I’m Andy Soell, co-founder of The Salt Mines. First, welcome to our community! We’re working hard to build The Salt Mines into the sort of collaborative community of highly-involved entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups, artists, and students that Columbus deserves, and we’re honored that you have decided to join with us.

I’ll be honest; When I started up The Salt Mines I was primarily looking at it as a cheap way to share office space. I learned quickly, though, that there is so much more potential here for something amazing. Since opening our doors in November of 2012, dozens of incredibly smart and talented people have crossed through our doors, and we’re excited to see how this community can contribute to Columbus.

The Guide

Most people who join us are already at least loosely aware of how coworking works, but there are inevitably some questions. This guide isn’t meant to be definitive, but it should be a good place to start when you’re looking to get hooked into The Salt Mines community. If you have any questions that aren’t addressed here, please feel free to ask me, another community member, or shoot me an email at
