Russ Patterson, CEO of Spacefy speaks about the company’s online marketplace for creative spaces.
“The bulk of my career has been spent at eBay. I spent 15 years at eBay Canada. All my experiences revolved around e-commerce primarily and marketplaces specifically.
Spacefy is an online marketplace for creative spaces. The way it works is that space owners can list their spaces on Spacefy for free. Add a few photos and answer a few questions and put information about the property. We need all kinds of spaces so, they could be people who are listing their homes or their businesses warehouses.
Creatives that we’re targeting are filmmakers, photographers, in the fashion industry and fitness industry. But particularly with the film and video new content development part of the business, you need to have a huge range of breath.
We drive the creatives to our site where they can search through and find spaces that might be appropriate for the event that they have in mind. They can negotiate and pay for the space right online. We take seven and a half percent from the buyers side and 7 1/2 percent from the sellers side for total take rate of 15 percent. A very similar business model and very similar revenue model to how Air BNB works.
I feel like we want to be in the service of art and help the organizers and the creatives to do their thing and find all these alternative venues in hidden spaces that otherwise would be very hard to uncover.” – Russ Patterson, CEO of Spacefy
