SOMO Club & Lounge - Membership Pledge Form
Notman House’s popularity, and especially the OSMO cafe, has arisen because of the way in which it has managed to establish itself as the place to go for those who want to connect with Montreal’s startup community, and because it has remained a place that is inviting and open to all.
This popularity has meant that access to the space has become harder, you can’t guarantee that you can find a spot to meet and chat with others. And so we have decided to launch a new type of space for founders to use to meet with friends, business contacts and other founders. This space is the members only, SOMO Lounge.
SOMO Lounge, on the top floor of the Notman campus, is the centre piece of the new SOMO Club membership. Other membership benefits include, guest passes to lounge, free access to Notman’s programming and special events, discount on commodity and services, private Slack and use of other hubs around the world.
The SOMO Lounge is the first new members lounge to be launched in Montreal in 20 years. Its design and ambiance will be reflective of Notman House’s heritage and the startup community’s spirit. The lounge will be a place that will provide an ambiance for people to talk and exchange.
By filling out this form, you pledge to become a member of the SOMO Club and to pay the annual fees corresponding to your membership level. You understand that due to space limitations a selection committee will review your application and your membership request may not be accepted even if it meets the eligibility criteria.
Pricing for “patron members” is significantly higher than for other members, with a large part of the membership being recognized as a sponsorship of sorts for the ongoing support of Notman House and the mission of its not-for-profit owner, OSMO.

Community Members ($1,500/y)
