Last year we established a residency program to encourage the worlds DOER’S to succeed with their projects they would like to launch from our bay area location.
A total of 5 DOER’s or “startups” will receive free full-time resident access to a Citizen Space for three months valued at $425 per month. The Citizen-in-Residence can take advantage of both the physical spaces & the communal resources.
In exchange, they work on a project of their choosing that help the “COWORKING” community at large, documenting their progress through our social presences on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. At the end of the residency, Citizens-in-Residence do a presentation to members of the space about their project.
Accepted Applicants will be announced one week prior to the residency start date. The first residency will start March 3, 2014 and the application process begins Tuesday, January 28, 2014.
We are seeking support from your company to help us make this program a success. If your company or you personally would like to sponsor this program, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
This code camp though is not a “one day and your done” code camp. On the contrary, this FREE code camp is unique in that is it lasts ALL WEEKEND. That’s right; you have 2 days to make it out to this FREE event. The Silicon Valley Code Camp will be held this Saturday, October 3rd, 2009 and this Sunday October 4th, 2009 at Foothill College in Los Altos, CA.
There is slated to be 150 sessions at this year’s code camp covering over 75+ topics. Add to that there are already over 1,200 people registered for this year’s code camp. So if you live or will be in the Silicon Valley area and are interested in networking with other developers and learning new skills (and in this tough economy, who isn’t?), then you should make it out to the Silicon Valley Code Camp.

On August 9, 2013, Citizen Space, the world’s first coworking space, will celebrate its 7 year anniversary and the global coworking movement with “International Coworking Day 2013”.
International Coworking Day will be celebrated all over the world and will focus on freelancers, independents, & startup businesses who have chosen to “work collaboratively together”.
There already exists a global sense of community among people who have a dedication to collaborating, communicating and working together in a shared space. If you want to join in on the discussion, and get a sense of the buzz and enthusiasm that is being generated to create spaces like Citizen Space globally, please do so at http://discuss.coworking.com/.
The general concept of coworking is simple; Freelancers, startups, independent professionals, or anyone with workplace flexibility who happens to work better when collaborating, rather than alone, come together in a shared workspace. Those who get involved agree to uphold the values set out by the movement’s founders, as well as communicate and socially interact with one another. It is all about creating a better working environment for entrepreneurs to get productivity flowing.
Working alone is a nice idea on the face of it. Those who work in an office environment will readily tell you how they would love to sit at home in their dressing gown and get up and make a cup of coffee every now and then. The truth is that there are a number of distractions that can slow down your production. There is also the loneliness and solitude that comes with working home alone. There are a number of stories and testimonials that support the general idea of International Co-working Day on August 9; read some of the stories here -http://coworking.com/coworkingstories.pdf and see if coworking can transform the way you work.
History Citizen Space:
In 2006 Tara Hunt & Chris Messina along with Brad Neuberg (Hat Factory) and a few others launched Citizen Space. Citizen Space became the first stand-alone “work” only shared space using the “coworking” label to describe a new type of collaborative space.
Citizen Space was acquired by Toby & Gina Morning in 2011, and continues to operate the world’s first coworking space in the heart of San Francisco’s SOMA district at 425 Second Street, Suite 100, San Francisco, Ca, 94107.

For too long, entrepreneurs have launched new ideas with the assumption that “if you build it, they will come.” However, the Information Age has flipped that concept on its head.
Today, strategists have a world of data at their fingertips. They don’t have to just build something and hope customers respond. They can see in real time whether that market exists, as well as what they and their friends respond to most. Consequently, the successful businesses are those who pay attention to changes in customer behavior, then continually iterate their product or service to respond to those changes.
This concept formed the foundation of the Lean Startup movement – an idea popularized by famed Silicon Valley entrepreneur Eric Ries. In this video, Alistair Croll, Solve for Interesting founder and “Lean Analytics” author, explains how companies can leverage new technologies to find and use the data to support this startup process.
He suggests companies:
Pinpoint the business’s most important metric for growth (e.g. revenue)
Identify the business model’s riskiest aspect
Establish a Minimum Viable Product, or a strategy to test the risk against the growth metric
Analyze the results
Modify the business model based on the results
Repeat the process until you discover your market
Watch the video below to learn more about how companies such as Flickr, AirBnB.com and Twitter have successfully implemented this model.
