Community support and interest has been amazing at the Atlanta Tech Village. As expected, startups and service providers have enthusiastically wanted to join. One of the items we’ve been trying to figure out is the right balance between startups and service providers renting desks in the coworking space.
We already have five categories of full-time members:
- Tech companies (headquartered in a different city or another part of Atlanta)
- Tech startups
- Independent freelancers (software engineers, graphic designers, consultants, etc)
- Investors including venture capitalists
- Tech-related service providers
The current thinking is to have 80% of the members in the first four categories and 20% of the members in the tech-related service provider category. Looking ahead, we’re excited to continue learning and figuring things out.
What else? What are your thoughts on the balance between startups and service providers in a coworking space?
