Jamie and David Orr come from science education and business development backgrounds respectfully, and they decided to make the move to Lake Tahoe to pursue their own business. Lake Tahoe was a frequent vacationing spot for them, and they fell in love with the small yet diverse community there. Jamie and David noticed a lack of cohesiveness in the professional community of South Lake Tahoe and thus set out to find a solution. Having experience working from home, they wanted to create an environment where business professionals of all sectors could come together and collaborate. Tahoe Mountain Lab was their solution: an office space for individuals wanting to rent out just a desk or private office to work in with amenities such as a conference room, internet, printer, scanner, snacks, and refreshments. Being a shared workspace, people can interact with other professionals and bounce ideas off one another. Tahoe Mountain Lab was founded in February of 2014 and boasts an 80-100% occupancy rate year round.
