One of the most common questions I see on this list and in private inquiries, other than “how do we market our new space”, is “how do we fund the opening of our coworking space”?
Sometimes the question is indirect, in the form of business planning questions, that are clearly aimed to fulfill investor questions.
Almost every time, the person asking the question about how to fund the space hasn’t done any of the legwork to find members yet. I believe that this isn’t only a mistake for the community and the business, but it’s an active attempt at delaying the inevitable work of having to find members until you don’t have a choice - a dangerous place to be making any kind of decisions.
I’d like to propose an alternative path and its benefits, based on our experiences launching and continuing to run Indy Hall.
