EWINDOW AT THE MAKER FAIRE SACHSEN 2019Comments Off on EWINDOW AT THE MAKER FAIRE SACHSEN 2019
We are very pleased to announce that we will be attending to the Sachsen Maker Faire
In the case of the town of Chemnitz we decided to start a collaboration with a group of creative guys who are looking for a space to share for working (and living) purposes.
We first met them in November 2016 at the FABLAB Chemnitz.
The first meeting was meant to know each other, to present our metodology and what we can offer to help the group to reach his goal. The report made by one of them is pretty clear.
“Was ist Multifactory zusammengefasst? Das sind Leute, die seit einigen Jahren in ganz Europa Erfahrungen mit der Erchließung von Leerstand haben. Sie stehen beratend zur Verfügng und handeln mit dem Hausbesitzer einen Wächterhaus-Vertrag für 5 bis 10 Jahre aus. Das Multifactory-Modell richtet sich an Hausbesitzer, die nicht wissen, was sie mit ihrem Grundstück machen sollen. Der Wächter verdient durch eine monatliche Miete der Betreiber. Dabei sind die Betreiber jeweils für ihren Bereich zuständig (Kneipe, Wohnen, Fablab, Atelier etc.). Mein Eindruck war, dass hier noch interessant wäre, wie hier die bisherigen Zusammenhänge zwischen der Fablab und der Multifactory sind. Sebastian hat ja auch schon durchklingen lassen, dass das Projekt bereits bekannt ist. Allgemein war klar, dass je mehr Leute sich an so einer Multifactory beteiligen, desto besser (ob es sich für ein kleines Hausprojekt eignet, ist die Frage). Weitere Infos gibt es hier: http://www.multifactory.
Es kam auch von der Multifactory der Hinweis, dass wir uns über unsere Wünsche und dem tatsächlichen Bedarf klar werden müssen. Auch muss man sich bei der einen und anderen Sache auf eine Hauptausrichtung spezialisieren (z.B. Kneipe mit Restaurant u.ä. wäre schon zu viel auf einmal).”
One month after, we met again for a tour around the neighborhood with the help of Robert, who is working for the municipality in an urban regeneration project, to see which are the empty buildings available.
Last week we had our third meeting, this time at the Honorary Hotel in Leipzig.
What went out is that there are real possibilities to contact some owners or to find partners to buy a building. One member of the Sonnenberg Creative proposed also an interesting idea to talk to the municipality: a project of urban regeneration for an abandoned public land.
We would like to meet again the Sonnenberg Creative during the Maker Faire Sachsen. This can be a deadline to make a proposal for our support on making the business plan to be presented to the selected private and public owners.
Companies are facing new issues: Shortened lifetime of products/ideas, increased need for flexibility and the need to offer a wider range of products/solutions to their customers.
To face these issues, they would need an extremely wide range of skills and equipments.
This is impossible, as most of these skills and equipments are very expensive to get and belong to very specific fields.
A way to face these needs could be to share and exchange tools and skills
It’s difficult to exchange expensive and critical tools to others (what happens if they are broken? How can you quote a price for these?)
A – help companies to put in the B2B market their tools
B – help companies to put in the B2B market their skills
C – help companies to find in the B2B market tools they need
D – help companies to find in the B2B market skills they need
E – help startups to have a workspace AND the access to tools and skills
As we need to let people to interact and create a mutual trust and at the same time they need a way to share tools and equipments.
We are going to create a NETWORK of Companies which want to SHARE tools, equipments and skills and a NETWORK of Companies which want to USE tools, equipments and skills. A company can belong both to these two networks, as one can both share and use resources.
First step to do when you are planning to found a company with others is to align on one common direction, fix clearly in mind which is the final goal of the company.
First we think we needed to align ourself on our needs and goals.

A shared workspace based on collaborative economy

Uber? airbnb? sure not. Sharing Economy is gradually rising and become popular. It became an umbrella under to put many different new trend.
Some articles links, in German, that give the bad size about Sharing Economy:
The “good” ones are those that empower communities in giving access to tools instead of possessing them. Couchsurfing can be recognize as one of the first platforms shaping Sharing Economy with this meaning.
In the last year both academic and independent institutions are looking for someone making some order in this mess.
What characterizes the organization and the management of ‘postgrowth organizations’ (PGOs)? Is it possible to turn traditional organizations into PGOs? What are the limits and prospects of PGOs in the transformation of capitalism? If you are working on one of these (or various other) questions, you should read this call for papers for a special issue of “Management Revue”.
