Current state of startup culture.


CO-WORKING

KNOWLEDGE

FUNDING

Existing co-working
spaces are mostly
focused on technology.
No home for founders in
other industries to
innovate, launch & grow.

Exposure and
knowledge gap to
the innovation,
entrepreneurship
and investment
ecosystem.

Lack of capital for startups


and early stage companies.
Lack of access to angels
and aspiring angels.
General public has been
restricted from investing due
to SEC rules.

CAPITAL FORMATION

We created a space and culture


for innovative consumer
products, consumer web, food,
film/TV, tech & service based
startups to work, learn, grow
and scale. With your
investment, we will expand to a
second location.

Via office hours, classes


and mentor access, well
teach the innovation,

investment ecosystem.
Well mentor new angels
and micro-angels on how
to invest in startups.

With your investment, were


launching an accelerator to

Trends

COWORKING CONTINUES UPWARD TREND


Seven out of ten coworking facilitators report that the availability of desk space in coworking
spaces cant keep up with the publics demand in general. Growing at a rate that nearly doubles
every year, coworking has expanded to over 1,000 locations in the U.S. and over 5,000 globally.
According to Deskmag, an online magazine about coworking, 60% of existing coworking offices
are planning new space acquisitions this year. Deskmag published their findings in their report,
The Coworking Forecast 2014. Their report is based on a survey of 2,706 coworkers between
Nov 6 and Dec 31, 2013.
Trending higher this year: Workspace switching. Last year, 80% of coworking professionals were
still at their first coworking space; this time around, that number dropped to just under 70%.
WeWork has a $1.5B valuation as of November 2014. Raised $150M from JP Morgan Chase.
