  • Good Morning, my name is Mark Laymon. I would like to introduce you to Coworking Florida.Coworking Florida is a community driven office space that will be located in Boynton Beach, Florida.Today I need your support to make Coworking Florida a reality
  • Coworking Florida is developing a community driven office space that values collaboration, openness, community, accessibility and sustainability.What are the key points to take away about Coworking?Work in a group environment.Have the amenities of a large office. (printers, conference rooms)Collaborate with great individuals on your projects.A MasterMind team at your fingertips.
  • You can rent a desk at many locations in Palm Beach County.How often do you wish there was someone that you could bounce an idea off of?This is on of my favorite photos, it shows two points of view. One is the lone sand dollar waiting for the next wave.The other is the sand dollar held up by the years of sand that has accumulated from years of wave movement.
  • Today the new startup entrepreneur has two options.Work from homeRent an executive office suiteWhat sounds good to you?Well do you have pets? Family members? Friends?I do, and they know I am home and that means they need my attention whenever I am home.Renting is great, but how established is your company? Do you have the business credit to rent an office for three years?I hate to point this out, not everyone that starts a business is can handle the business…
  • Coworking? It’s a growing movement, WORLD WIDE!It’s not just for the startup company either.Save on the monthly rent, still have access to the amenities you use on a daily basis.How many of you can hack working from a bedroom more than 3 months?
  • We dominate the Cost factor, our competition excels in privacy.Executive offices are our competition. They do have the privacy thing going for them.As I stated earlier, working alone is not always what you need as a startup.We take the work from home employee, offer them the services and guidance they need.Then once they hit a profitable margin, they can move off to work by themselves.
  • A Core Business Model?Our business model will be always evolving, but our core business model will be split between two tracks.First is our community membership. From daily drop-ins to those looking for 24/7 access will always be important to our bottom line.Second will be our involvement in the development of our members threw our Accelerator Program.Our Accelerator Program’s income will steadily outgrow our memberships as our community grows and prospers.
  • The underlining magic to Coworking Florida is having Mark Laymon and his past 4 years of growing his social profile in the local communities.Since 1996 I have watched trends in work from home business models, startup business development and how to monetize new projects. I know the community, I know the industry and I know where an opportunity is going to develop.A couple years ago I saw Meetups beginning to go mainstream. New Tech Community was one of the companies that I developed into a strong society of like minded people.To grow these markets I did not reinvent the wheel, I just tweak them to make them what they can become.I am not alone, I have a strong well developed following that is ready to follow me forward with Coworking Florida.
  • Marketing Coworking Florida is going to be mostly threw our local social graph.Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Meetup are some of the social sites we use, but that is just scratching the surface.The ability of using old media contacts alongside new media contacts gives us a drastic advantage for Coworking to move ahead.Memberships will be a soft roll in as members see the benefits of working in a collaborative environment.
  • Driving the staffing forward at Coworking Florida is the community.Following the
  • I am not going to show some made up hockey stick for a graph. That would be completely un realistic. But what I can tell you, every executive office suite is filled in the area and there is a high demand for an entry level office space to open. It will take 90 days to build out our location from the time we sign our lease. With that in mind I am going to begin placing coworkers into positions now. This way we can have our space active from day one.
  • Coworking Florida is still in the startup stage. With our first round of funding we are forming a Florida corporation and securing the location in Boynton Beach, Florida. The location in on the North West corner of Gateway Boulevard and High Ridge Road. Just west of I-95, and directly across from the Boynton Beach Tri-Rail station.The plans for the space are currently being developed to add select social integration with our partnered companies.This will allow the partners to become integrated directly into our membership.At this point we are still accepting applications for materials to be featured in our space as well.
  • What is in it for you to sponsor Coworking Florida?In trade for your sponsorship, we are offering many benefits to you.We have teamed up with PeerBackersto handle our crowdfunding
