When I started up altspace in 2016 I was faced with the universal challenge of a startup, to overcome a lack of awareness and interest. To counter this I split my days and weeks into segments and committed my efforts to meeting new contacts, educating myself and finding my feet in the local community. In short I had a lot of time on my hands.
If you have a similar challenge now then maybe my abridged ‘lockdown’ task list might help you find some inspiration.
|– Organising events in the space
|– Participate in virtual meetings
|– Start a dialogue with new people on social media

|– Plan future events to engage in with local community
