It's Mike Vizdos (I may have not met everybody on here yet even though
it is a small group) and I am the Executive Director for Gangplank
Thanks for subscribing to this group.
Just wanted to give you an update since our first meeting last week
and going into our open meeting time this coming Tuesday.
Mark and I have been working on looking at spaces and we'll have more
information about our progress by Tuesday. Exciting things happening
there. We are also actively reaching out to local government and
NGO's to get the buzz going in town. People are interested and not
sure really what to do with us (smile).
If you have not taken a look at www.whatisgangplank.com
There are short videos at that site describing the concept that has
been around for many years in Chandler, Arizona. I am actually out
here this week working with the Executive Director and Operations
Director -- and actually doing my "real world job" from the facilities
I'd love to start a discussion on this thread to see what you (and the
others here so far) *think* what Gangplank really *is* and *should be*
for us as we move forward.
You hear a lot about collaborative workspaces. Free. Not co-working
and not an incubator. Paying it forward with social capital.
Also... let me know if you'll be able to help out on Tuesday morning
(9-12) at the Twin Hickory library. A few things will be happening
there -- from introductions to possibly even people starting to do
Hope this is helpful.
