While crawling the questions being asked here, I saw that the question of the office space seems to be very important for many founders.
As an investor (in the most global sense), I think that real estate is a good way to invest safely my money. But I also think that investing in startups is a risky but more profitable way to do it. So I think that I can maybe find the best of the two : investing in startups but lowering the risk with real-estate.
So now, my question is the following :
Are you (you=founders of a startup) ready to give some equity to someone that will give you a comfortable office space (let's say room for 10 persons), with internet access (fiber or high-speed access), printers, meeting room (shared with a few others startups) and reception service ? This would be only for a limited time (2 or 3 years typically).
And what will be the typical percentage of equity that you will be OK to give for that ?
