Plus, each campaign is different. However, there are 5 things we at Slick Chicks believe will help you regardless of what business or campaign you run. So here they are: our top 5 tips on how to make your Kickstarter a success!

How big will your team grow, and is it healthy—or even humane?—to cram all of the new employees into that small, florescent-lit office space? All of those question marks can tie your stomach into knots.

11 Incredible Coworking Space Statistics

Happy Friday!  Considering joining a coworking space?  Here are just 11 reasons why that's a great idea.  

Collaboration 164, Steve Jobs 51, Bill Gates 92. You need to collaborate!

I’m just about done with Walter Isaacson’s “The Innovators”, which is a beautiful and sweeping survey of the players and how we got where we are today in technology.  As a cofounder of Grind, one of the original collaborative and coworking workspaces, I was struck by the theme of collaboration that runs through the book. In fact I just searched "The Innovators" on my Kindle for the word “collaborate”. It returned 164 results. To put that in perspective, “internet” got 212 results and “Steve Jobs” 51. Of course I got a little carried away, below are some of the other search results of the book which helps show the power of collaboration in the development of technology.

  • Internet 212
  • Collaborate 164
  • Steve Jobs 51
  • Bill Gates 92
  • Gordon Moore 29
  • Microprocessor 38
  • Ada Lovelace 50
  • Xerox Parc 29
  • ENIAC 139
