OK this is it … this is your opportunity to help create a vibrant startup community.
As mentioned in my last email, I have started the search for a permanent home for SURF Incubator and a way to more concretely support the two Meetup groups, which I manage.
Already, I have found one perfect location:
5,700 square feet
15+ nice offices with doors
Large common area for group meeting
2 medium-sized conference rooms
Kitchen area with a stunning view of Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains.
First floor with its very own access – making it a
Perfect place for night owls
My vision is to secure this space as soon as possible and then immediately begin holding meetings almost every night of the week. Initially, we will hold open house events combined with networking meetings. Then, based on membership input, we will start holding specific topic meetings such as:
Forming a Team
Creating a Wireframe
Building a Prototype
Intellectual Property Issues
Forming the Company
Many more topics – fill in the blank.
This location is perfect for a 24-hour 7-days-per-week operation. We will pay the various location/operation bills from the following revenues sources:
Individual office rentals – one to four people
Day-use desk rentals – 20 to 30 desks
Sponsorships – host special events promoting their offering to the members
Event registration fees – room for 40 people seated
There will be multiple levels of membership. Benefits will be extensive and include:
Introductions to people who can help you launch/advance your product/company
Discounts for events
Access to a custom tech library
Drop-in for day-use desks
Reserved use of meeting rooms
Enjoy a cup of coffee while looking over puget sound
Now, I need to hear from you. If we get strong enough commitment from the group, we can make this happen very quickly. Otherwise, I will have to pass on this ideal location.
For those who respond to this email by phone or email, I will add you to a special list and then keep you fully informed of our plans as well as early invitation-only tour of the facility. Respectfully, I do not want to blast email to the entire group until I have secured a permanent location.
Thanks for reading all of this. I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.
