GroundFloorSV Leaving 2030 Duane Location Nov-30-2012

Written by Sean Murphy. Posted in First Office

Following closely on the heels of Monday’s announcement of Hacker Dojo relocating we received the following notice this afternoon from Ground Floor Silicon Valley

Special Announcement
We are writing to members of the Ground Floor community to let everyone know that the building at 2030 Duane Avenue has been sold. The last day that Ground Floor will occupy the building is November 30, 2012. All events and meetups listed on the events calendar and planned for the rest of October and the month of November will take place as scheduled.

Members of the Ground Floor community are welcome to continue their memberships through November 30. If any member wishes to discontinue membership at the end of this month, please notify us and return your RFID fob by October 31 and you will not be charged for the month of November.

We are still in the process of deciding whether or not to continue Ground Floor at another location. The process of selling the building has taken place very quickly, and we are giving everyone as much advance notice as possible. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause.

Please contact Peter (650-291-6707; peter@groundfloorsv.com) or Max (408-466-4310; max@groundfloorsv.com) if you have questions.

Thank you for your understanding.

As I mentioned in the Monday post, we have been very happy with GroundFloorSV and the Pacific Business Centers in Cupertino and Sunnyvale for the majority of our meetings. The Silicon Valley startup ecosystem will definitely benefit from Hacker Dojo’s continued operation and even from a few more co-working facilities in the South Bay. My sincere hope is that GroundFloorSV finds a new location in the South Bay.

Having spaces that can foster technical entrepreneurial communities with flexible short term commitments for co-working, meeting room, and classrooms seems to me to be one of the elements necessary for a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem. It’s the equivalent to cloud computing as a computing infrastructure for early stage startups.
