thINC Community Guidelines

Thanks for being a part of the thINCubator as we work to grow a connected community of entrepreneurs in the Mohawk Valley. We’re glad you’re here. Whether you’re an incubated company or one of our co-workers, we wanted to lay out some best practices and policies that will allow us to maintain a culture of community, professionalism and coolness.

Communication:

In a big shared space such as thINC communication is key. If you need something, say something (or Slack something). You can utilize our Slack community to ask questions, DM staff or other members, post questions, talk about events and much more. Need a tutorial? We’re happy to help. Just ask Stacey or Ryan and we’ll get you set up.

Feel free to change the thermostat or the music selection to whatever will make you most comfortable but please be aware of others in the space and their needs when it comes to volume, genre and core temperature. Be a good neighbor!

Hosting Meetings and Clients:

Co-Workers and Incubated Companies can (and are encouraged to)
have meetings with clients here at thINC. Feel free to book a conference room if that’s needed, but you can certainly meet in the open space. We do ask that you be respectful of others in the space while hosting your meetings or conference calls. If you’re a co-worker and need to have additional staff working/meeting out of the space, we do need you to purchase additional co-working memberships.

Internal and External Events:

thINC will occasionally rent our facility to some external organizations/ events throughout 2018. These rental fees help us keep the lights on and keep our co-working fees low. We’ll do our absolute best to minimize disruption to you all and inform everyone when larger events are taking place. You can check our shared Google Calendar for a real- time list of events, or check the White Board at the entrance where we’ll post announcements and updates weekly.

Hosting Your Events at thINC (if you’re already a member)

You’ll need to fill out an Event Request Form on this page and we’ll send approval within 48 hours.
If you’re running a FREE event/workshop that’s open to our community and/or the public – we’ll waive the facility rental fee for the thINCubator. These are a great way to demonstrate thought leadership and bring awareness to your business.
If you’re running a PAID event/workshop – you’ll have two options. You can opt to rent our space at a discount (pricing will be available online shortly), or enter into a revenue sharing agreement with thINC where the house will take 25% of gross sales in lieu of a rental fee.
