Welcome to the Everything Coworking Podcast Episode #20!
This week my guest is Hasan Mirjan, Founder of Spheremail and Spherepad. He started both about the same time. As he shares during the interview, he started Spherepad, a coworking space, in 2008 in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood and at the time, friends and family warned him of a low chance of success given the bad economy and an unproven location. So to hedge his bet, he started Spheremail, a virtual mail management platform, to diversify his revenue streams. It turns out that both ventures were successful. Spheremail is now being used by shared workspaces across the country and around the world.
