This is a bit crazy, but hear me out:

? ? ? ?If the meetup charged $15 a month, it could actually generate 100k a year.

? ? ? ?With 100k/yr, it could rnet about 3500sq feet of raw office space in lower manhattan at an average $30sq/ft lease price -- which could probably be improved on.

? ? ? ?The space could then be rented to other meetups to cover utilities & insurance costs to keep it operational, and cover light admin overhead + projectors and buying a few hundred cheap ikea chairs.

? ? ? ?It could even be rented out to people during the day to co-work.

Spoken like a true entrepreneur :)
