Running your business at Hive13
THE BELOW IS UNDER REVIEW, current announced policy is no significant for-profit usage of Hive13 facilities till we can get further clarification on what may or may not constitute significant personal benefit which could jeopardize our tax-exempt status - Planned topic for Board Meeting - September 12th, 2022
- In general, Hive13 has no objection to you running a business that leverages Hive13 resources.
- However, there are few recommendations for those Hive13 members who choose to do so.
- Be an Excellent Member of the Community – Be a Maker, Not a Taker.
- Clean up after yourself. Leave the workspace in better condition than you found it.
- Avoid hogging equipment. Let other members playthrough if possible or give a realistic estimation of when you'll be done and try to honor that time.
- Choose inactive times a day to do your work.
- Don't use up Hive13 consumables. Please consider replenishing anything that you use. If you use it a lot, please provide it for yourself.
- Offer Hive13, members the ability to get in on large material orders and to get good prices and share shipping costs.
- Equipment breaks. As a person who uses Hive13 as a business, please be the first to raise your hand to help Fix the equipment. Equipment remains broken for a while. Be careful making a business plan based on volunteer-maintained equipment.
- Your looming deadline does not constitute an emergency for Hive13 members, so please plan your time accordingly.
- Do not abuse open work areas or the member storage and parking pass system. Consider renting your own studio space from 2701 SG and just using Hive13 equipment.
- Don't compromise Hive13’s outstanding relationship with our landlord.
- In summary, be extra excellent and everything will go smoothly.
