Bayshore, 5700 N. Bayshore Dr., will go to a new level of offerings with The Collective Marketplace and The Collective Workspace, operated by the SSGN Group Entrepreneurs Society. 

The grand openings of both new businesses will take place in early April, with special events in February and March.

The Collective Marketplace is a retail destination aimed at local entrepreneurs, business owners and authors to potential customers. The Collective Workspace, located on the upper level of The Collective Marketplace, is a shared workspace with meeting spaces, training areas, focus rooms, creative workspaces and a travel hub for independent travel agency owners. The Collective Workspace will be available to members only.

“We’re thrilled to offer our guests a new, unique and diverse shopping and experiential destination which showcases local entrepreneurs and authors, and supports workspace needs for our communities,” said Kirk Williams, Managing Director, Cypress Equities.

The Collective Marketplace has two upcoming events scheduled at Bayshore. 

"The Collective Marketplace: For the Love of Entrepreneurs Fest" will showcase local entrepreneurs' products and services on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. through March 26. There will also be a pitch contest for a chance to be featured as a resident at The Collective Marketplace. 

"The Collective Marketplace: Author’s Lounge Launch" invites local authors to the onsite Collective Author’s Lounge bookstore on Sunday, Feb. 27 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Authors will be able to promote their books and find out about special readings and events. Go here to register.  Both events are free and open to the public. For more information, visit and click on the events page.
