We are starting a coworking space

In my previous post, I mentioned an idea/project for 2015, was launching coworking space in Maryland for diaspora startups, and we were able to secure a space, about 3200 sq/ft in Silver Spring… so far we have been working on building our initial coworking community within Silver spring, Maryland.

Its usually said starting a business is no easy feat, more so in the real estate business versus software, mostly because most capital expenses are tangible and pressing, e.g rent is due when its due, free trials don’t exist in leases.

So I’ve been brainstorming and we have a couple ideas of the direction we are thinking of going in regards to services, membership, and stuff at I/O spaces, this is still very rough, and most importantly we need your feedback because this is about you.
