WHAT IS #1DOLLAROFFICESPACE?
We are offering some of our office space in the Holsum Design Center in downtown Las Vegas to a tech startup for $1 a month (for up to 12 months).
HOW DO YOU GET CONSIDERED?
To be considered, just submit a video application via Instagram tagged with #1DollarOfficeSpace and mention @TheGlennGroup any time throughout August 2013.
WHAT SHOULD THE VIDEO BE ABOUT?
The content of the video application is totally up to you. Tell us about your business. Tell us about the idea behind your business. Tell us how you’re going to change the world, or how having you in our building will change our world. Tell us why you do, or want to do, business in downtown Las Vegas. Tell us why you love Nevada like we do. Tell us something that will let us know we’d be a good fit. Fun, sincere, insane, serious, odd, rude, weird, clever, epic, simple—your method is entirely up to you. But we’re only allowing one video entry per company.
HOW DO YOU GET CHOSEN?
The process will include review of the video applications and then in-person interviews. The ultimate selection will be up to us, but we will call upon a panel of tech gurus and downtown Las Vegas stakeholders to help us make the decision that’s best for downtown, the tech start-up chosen and The Glenn Group.
We’re not huge fans of social media voting, so social platforms won’t play an official role in our decision, but “likes” and supportive comments and tweets are bound to make your video stand out and make us pay more attention to your company. We feel like doing it this way will make the decision more genuine and authentic in the end. That’s important to us.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS NOW?
We’re launching #1DollarOfficeSpace in August 2013 in honor of Las Vegas Startup Weekend and the inaugural year of SXSW V2V, as well as in celebration of our one-year anniversary in downtown Las Vegas.
THE VISION BEHIND #1DOLLAROFFICESPACE
We believe in pioneers. We believe in dreamers and visionaries who dig in. We believe Nevada is a frontier for big ideas and burgeoning businesses. We believe in the possibilities and potential of downtown Las Vegas. And we believe we should do our part to help reach that potential. We believe that’s our duty as a Nevada business that’s dedicated to the growth of enterprise and imagination throughout our state.
So, since we have extra space available right now, instead of turning it into a one-legged hopscotch-basketball court, or renting it out for big dollars, we decided to do what we can to help downtown Las Vegas, and the Nevada tech industry, grow some big ideas.
The $1 a month lease will be good for up to 12 months.
The official start date of the lease will be decided upon by the chosen tech startup and The Glenn Group.
We will provide up to 1,000 square feet of space.
References will ultimately be required.
