D: How has working in a coworking space like DeskHub worked for Wyndelts?
T: Working here really gets us out of our heads because being in this profession has us attached to our computers all day. Honestly, I don’t think we would’ve had a chance to meet as many people in such an array of fields if we didn’t work here at Deskhub.
D: What has been your most memorable moment here at Deskhub?
T: The happy hour – I met some incredibly gifted entrepreneurs and people. The happy hour gave me a chance to meet and talk to other people because I’m fairly new to arizona.
D: What has been your experience working with startups or new business ventures, whether here at Deskhub or elsewhere?
R: They’re a lot of fun! I enjoy the energy of the startup entrepreneurs.
T: Desk hub has been really fun. Everyone is moving towards the same general goal, which is to better the community or better themselves. It’s been really great.
D: Bob, you were Deskhub’s very first member. Can you provide any insight with regards to where Deskhub was when you first moved in, versus where it is now?
R: Easy question. They were quiet, now they’re jamming.
D: Very cool. You’ve worked with a lot of startups here in Arizona. Where do you think the startup ecosystem here in AZ is in terms of growth?
R: It’s in its early stages, growing, becoming more sophisticated. The startup community, like Arizona, is warm and receptive.

R: Hire a quality CPA, hire a quality attorney.
