Re: [newtech-1] an idea for meetup space: FlexSpace,

Dear Eddie, Jonathan, and meetup colleagues, 
I saw you had interest to co-work during business hours.
NYCOfficeSuites, had designed a program called FlexSpace for today's quickly changing business office needs.  The program's philosophy is to help you manage your company's office needs with simplicity, convenience, and a cost-effective membership solution for employee office space.  Meetup members can purchase a FlexSpace card and use the office space as needed.  You do need to hire staff, put money into long-term leases, or purchase and maintain expensive equipment.  FlexSpace has over 55,000 square feet of office space.  The private offices accommodate 1-10 people.  If Meetup members are interested in prestigious office space, in the Grand Central District of New York City, I would be delighted to help you.  Our packages start at $189/month per user.  My direct dial is[masked] or [address removed]
Kind regards,
Tara Leifer

signing a prime lease usually requires both a deposit and a guarantor,
also the number of square feet you rent isnt the number of square feet
you get. Also need electric. Also furniture. And clean up. If you are
going to persue this I would look for a sublet from an existing tenant
and have them throw in chairs and pay them a little more. that might
eliminate the guarantee.

there are tons of spaces out there. times are tough. get one of those
meeting and convention books and a good real estate broker.

Please pass this on to anyone with the first name of Miles or Myles.

I have started a linked group "Miles or Myles" for those having that first name.

The Miles group will start online and then, hopefully, at some time in
the future we will have a real world in person event. A room full of
hundreds of Miles. It will be a unique experience for all Miles.
Please pass the link along.
