As we went further into the research for our startup business–POP SPACE, we inevitably found some similar ideas and realized that we are stepping into an competitive market.
At very first we were interested in three ideas, non-permanence, quantified-self and self-reflection. Later we agreed on the first idea and decided to design a startup with it. After many disappointing “oh, this has already been done,” we chose to develop a platform. The platform will help leaseholders from financial pressure by subletting commercial space with people who want to test their products or hold a meeting etc. As we surprisingly confirmed the availability of our expected name, POPSPACE, we sadly found Storefront shortly after. Storefront is an existing website not only shares our idea but also thrives in San Francisco. Which means we are in trouble. Mayday, mayday！
