Yes, it’s quiet around here

by Marc ~ November 29, 2009

It has been a long time between updates… once again!

The reason is that nothing much has changed. I am still passionate about seeing my vision become a reality, and I have no doubt that we could make a great coworking space in the inner-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. However, without one or two equally passionate people to help me establish the space be ready to step up if something was to happen to me, I’m not willing to take money from investors… the risk, I believe, is too great.

If there is one thing in common between all of the successful spaces I have seen and read about, it seems that a couple of passionate founders is almost a prerequisite.

I’ve also been busy with my “day job”, which means it has been a little to easy to put this on the backburner until things change.

So what does this mean? It means if you are keen to see a coworking space established in or around Richmond, and you like what you read here about my vision for such a space, then please get in touch. I love meeting new people and discussing coworking, or small business in general.

I have had several people contact me over the last few months, but most are interested in the idea of being members if/when we get this off the ground and don’t have the time or passion required to help establish the space. I can understand that.

So that’s where we are at, and where we will stay until further notice. All it will take is the right one or two people to get in touch so we can spend some time together sharing our visions and making sure we’d make good partners, and we could get things rolling pretty quickly. Until then, if you are interested in is membership then keep registering your interest and we’ll be sure to keep you updated when things change.

    Have you heard anymore from the owner of the original site pegged for coworking? Have they started construction?

    Hi Bret,

    No, there’s nothing happening at that place. I drive by regularly and they haven’t done any work that I can see.

    Hi Mark,

    I came across your site as I’m doing some research about establishing a co-working space on a inner-western Melbourne suburb. Just wondering if the project is still on your mind and maybe we could grab a coffee and have a chat some time.

    btw, you’ve got pretty useful information in here.

    cheers,
    Arturo

    Hi Arturo,

    There have been a few things happening in the background recently. I’ll be posting more to the site in the next few weeks. In the meantime, I’ll email you directly… a coffee sounds great.

    Marc.
