Not outer space. No, the point is that the space you meet in, the space you operate in, or the space you interact with people in can make you more creative. Everyone has been to a conference in a hotel ballroom, right. Mind-numbing. Plain. Boring. The space sucks the very life out of you. We at Valorem believe space matters. That’s why we have always had a devoted collaboration space–whiteboards, chairs but no table, stuff to throw at each other. An environment to make you think better.
Yesterday, Nicole and I spent the day with Matt Homann of Filament. Matt is a victim of “idea surplus disorder.” A couple of hours with Matt gives you a notebook full of things to think about, to dream about. Matt, like us, recognizes that the right space makes the event, the meeting, the brainstorming session. And he knew that such spaces are rare. So he created one. It is the best meeting space I have ever been in. My words cannot do justice to the space. Take a look.
The space is in St. Louis. Believe me it IS worth the trip if ideas matter to you.
