The MakeInnovation idea was my initial step in trying to bootstrap a
coworking space focused on innovation and incubation. I have some
ideas for some digital tools that could facilitate that process but
they are in the conversation stage right now.
Apart from looking for work myself I'm also keen on the idea of
finding ways the concept of coworking/maker spaces can help provide
support and help to people who are at risk, long term unemployed, or
people who want to change jobs learn new technologies and about
Thanks for the advice, the work you've done with IndyHall is inspiring,

Kristian von Bengtson looks at me with a piercing gaze. He is the man who, together with inventor Peter Madsen, is building a spaceship and a rocket from scratch. I have just asked him what he thinks about today’s focus on the experience economy, innovation and similar ideas, expressed in a business world with many plans for progress and growth. The answer is direct:“It’s nothing but post-it notes on whiteboards with arrows in between. If you take a closer look, nothing gets done.”
He pauses briefly and elucidates:
“Yesterday I visited the old Carlsberg Bottling Halls, where one of my good friends sits and works. He is a designer, and we sometimes sit together working on our different things. Yesterday, we started talking about how tired we are of all the bullshit we hear about. You know, from people writing and talking about ‘innovation-driven design’ and that sort of stuff. They belong to a bullshit industry with offices filled with CAD drawings, projects, paper and 360-degree design solutions. But I keep thinking: Make something, produce something, do something! If not, you don’t get anywhere.”
