Really interesting Jalle - I recently published a book about the same after interviewing some founders. Check it out - www.DisruptorsBook.com

Thanks Jalle. You make some thought-provoking points.

Did you try out coworking spaces? My impression from brief exposures to several is that they lack a meaningful community. One space was starting to build such a community, but then the owner closed it to focus on his other business.

I'm curious to hear other people's opinions about coworking spaces.

Thanks Mark.

Our team meets in co-working spaces when we need a meeting room. Because most of our team is part-time for now we mostly work remotely. But we've met at the HUB SF and Oakland, as well as Workshop Cafe in the FIDI and had a great experience.

I think co-working spaces are really helpful if you need a place to meet. They are also great places to meet other entrepreneurs. In regards to community, I think it depends on the specific co-working space.

Here's my startup experience to share: http://women2.com/2012/10/29/realities-of-running-an-early-stage-startup/. I wrote this during the early startup stage so it may not apply to others who may be further along in their journey. Hopefully, it's helpful!
