We are a community coworking and creative events space based in Edinburgh. To be more precise, we are based in the community of Portobello, Edinburgh’s seaside. We are a collection of social entrepreneurs, freelancers, charities, SMEs and enterprises. From photographers to translators, graphic designers to environmental consultants, we have over 140 members and provide office, studios, permanent desk and hot desking. Tribe is big on building community and believes that a nurturing environment which sparks creativity and collaboration is good for business, individuals and communities. At Tribe, you will also find a strong community of female run enterprises through our partner, Keystone, as well as The Edinburgh Tool Library, Velow Bikeworks, Portobello Natural Health, Sodak, The Pilates Studio Edinburgh and more. Tribe Porty is proudly a social enterprise.
Tribe Talks are a free monthly event hosted by a member of Tribe Porty. All are welcome.

If you are wanting more from your working life, starting or growing a new enterprise, or finally ready to do that thing you have been thinking about for so long, Keystone is for you. Through group coaching and a thoughtful programme of business and personal development, you will find a better working life.
What do you like about Tribe the most?
The space is beautifully designed, with a host of lovely people working here, a welcoming atmosphere and is only a short lunchtime meander from the sea.
What makes you smile and what do you do here?
Bike rides, climbing adventures, playing guitar, time spent with family and friends, bad jokes, and designing and making things! I am working on an urban design PhD at University of Edinburgh using service design, UX design and design thinking approaches to overcome barriers to design and delivery of greener, more people-friendly public spaces in practice.
We want to warm you all up with an extra social, hot lunch, once a month. Alice is keen to whip up some vegan delights and we are going to try it out for the winter months. There will be some homemade vegan soup, BYOB(read)!
