The K Haus Is Home To Buffalo’s Big Thinkers And Doers
From New York State’s original seat of invention and industry, the next generation of entrepreneurs is putting the wheels in motion that will change the world.
The K Haus provides a collective home for these visionaries and serves to bridge the gap between entrepreneurial minds and the resources they need to succeed.
This unique, fully-equipped coworking destination gives members access to legal and capital advice as well as professional connections to accelerate success.

Our Mission

The K Haus’ mission is to create a community, design and art-focused space for free thinking, creative driven individuals.
We’re facilitating work in a progressive and network-driven environment, and giving founders and start-ups support and resources to help them achieve their goals.

Our Location

The K Haus was renovated by The K Team and opened in December 2020. The redeveloped brownstone is located in the Allentown historic district of downtown Buffalo, NY.
It is home to the unique gallery, K Art, with its programming focusing on Contemporary Native American works.

Our Facilities

Members access a stunning, functional and fully equipped office space.
Our refurbished brownstone’s welcoming outdoor terrace, collaborative indoor spaces, coffee bar & lounge make it the ideal business home base.
Our Founder + Team
The K Haus is founded by Dave Kimelberg, a venture capital and start-up attorney and advisor. Dave is the former General Counsel of SoftBank and was the founding CEO of Seneca Holdings, the economic development arm of the Seneca Nation, which he led from a start-up concept to a multi-national corporate and investment enterprise.
Dave was inspired to create the K Haus as a purpose-driven space for Buffalo’s emerging entrepreneurial community, and to support this community with the legal and investment resources they need to turn big dreams into reality.
Joining Dave, ‘The K Team’ is focused on creating and operating spaces that promote, help, develop and engage entrepreneurs, early-stage companies and other professionals.
