Hi all,

Sorry for banging this drum once more, but we're a couple of people short of being able to make sure all this happens.

Fly The Coop is a non-profit co-operative (actually, legally established as an Independent Provident Society, regulated by the FSA and all that jazz), that several GeekUpers established some time ago. Our goal is to provide/support permanent co-working spaces in the North of England for freelancers and SMEs.

Some of you will have heard that there is a Hackspace opening up in the Northern Quarter. As part of that space, FTC hopes to commit to renting the first floor and providing a co-working space. We talked about the space a little here:


Before moving in there will be some serious re-decoration and probably the removal of a wall in order to make one of the rooms much brighter/lighter.

Basically, there is space for permanent desks, hot-desking and a meeting room. Right now we have 4 people lined up to take a permanent desk at £200/month (which is a members rate - membership costs just £1/year, and you'll be expected to help a little bit from time-to-time in running the co-op), but we need another 2 people in order to secure the space and cover all rent, rates, and electricity. The deal is spelled out here:


We have until the weekend to secure it. If we manage to, everybody benefits from a cheap meeting room, from hot-desking and the community we hope to build.

£200/month for a desk, chair, power and wifi might seem too rich for some, but it's *very* competitively priced for the Northern Quarter. Please get in touch with Ben Gibbs or myself if you're interested.

Feel free to forward this beyond the GeekUp/tech community if you think somebody will be interested.
