Our startup team has been a member of a co-working space in central London for a year.
Our ambition has always been to build up a team there, be a member of a community, and have a longer-term recognised place for our company.
Now, the co-working space has on-boarded a direct competitor into the community.
Their response is they will not do anything about it.
It makes our situation unmanageable:
We cannot discuss our work in the co-working space and the community anymore.
Our team cannot engage with the community (which is a perk for people joining a startup team)
Our investors and partners raise serious questions about the situation.
The current situation cannot hold and will force us to leave if nothing changes.
In our view, this situation is very unfair.
Our team has done nothing wrong and because of an error by the co-working team, we are forced out.
Does anyone have an idea how to go about this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
