What I meant is, for our first and second membership locations (second one is opening November 1st: http://collectiveagency.co/2016/10/07/press-release-after-five-years-collective-agency-members-start-second-location-at-3050-se-division/ ) people voted on a general need and geographic area of interest, and then visited a location, and for the first location members prepaid rent (and one person who didn’t want to be a member but wanted to support, gave a donation) and I put in $35 of my own money and risked being paid (and we recouped all expenses within 5 weeks), and for the second membership location members prepaid more than 100% of what was needed to prepay the lease and furniture/equipment to start.
For our second meetings location, we’re paying base monthly rent to an art gallery and sharing a percentage of gross revenue when the base rent is exceeded, and doing a timeshare. Their artists provide the art, and we provide the meetings. (It also recouped all expenses in the first 5 weeks and total revenue was 2x total expenses after 4 months.)
In both cases, there are regular weekly meetings and members ask for and make happen what they very much want, including setting the rates (self-governance), at Collective Agency for the membership locations and at the art gallery for their artist co-op members (and here for the second meeting location, which was inspired because enough members here strongly didn’t want part of our Loft to be blocked off for a new conference room to be built).

Hi Ramon, Thanks for asking. I’m interested in this as well. Currently we are doing pre-sales led by members to open additional locations.

I would like to look at the way some spaces advertise their partnership opportunities to open a new coworking space with their brand. I’ve checked a few of the big ones but found nothing.
Can you give me some links ?
If there’s nothing public, could you please share with me privately?
