Introducing Hacker House

The startup space is filled with stories about how a couple of guys in their 20’s built their first product in their apartment. I believe that this is the best way to build a startup with limited resources. It’s been almost two years since I got back from Boost VC in Silicon Valley and I really missed the place. For those who’s never heard of Boost VC, it’s an accelerator in Silicon Valley with more focus on blockchain and VR. They provide you with funding, office space, and housing to allow you to focus like no other place in the world. Just imagine a place where the smartest and most passionate people work together, all trying to make the world a better place in their own ways.

Boost VC was that place.

Welcome to Boost VC Unlimited Ramen and Red Bull

I’d like to try to recreate this environment by turning an apartment into a coworking + coliving space. The apartment has 2 bedrooms, 1 flex room, and 1 den. They all have their own doors so everyone has their own privacy. Each room will be converted into a bedroom with their own closets. The living room will be turned into an open office space with 6 desks. We’ll have 4 people living in the apartment but there will be extra desks to accomodate guests. One bathroom is an ensuite so the other bathroom will need to be shared by 3 people. To maintain the cleanliness of the shared space, we’ll have a weekly or bi-weekly professional cleaning.
