If you are coming to PeopleSpace, double check your address and make sure you’re going to 1691 Kettering St.. Here is why…
PeopleSpace Inc, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization has been in operation in Irvine Ca. since 2013. We are currently fighting for our trademark since another PeopleSpace Inc (registered in Delaware) decided to move in the same zip code (less than a mile away) in 2019!
So you must be asking… How is this possible?
Our mission has been to serve entrepreneurs with community and a place to work since 2013. For the past 9 years, we have evolved from helping local entrepreneurs to hosting an AI Program with International Exchange Students. Applied education has always been the forefront of our purpose.
In 2019, another PeopleSpace Inc opened up in Irvine under the same zip code, less than one mile away from us using capital P and S… just like us. I tried to contact the secretary of state inquiring about their registration in California but apparently, nobody cares. I also email the city since they should not have been granted a DBA in California… again no one responded.
Luckily, Knobbe Martens is so amazing to take us on as a client and has been fighting for us diligently and tirelessly the past 2 years! It’s unresolved at the moment due to their ample amount of funds and their ability to stall progress.
We are registered in California while they are registered in Delaware. It appears that they are doing business as Interior Office Solutions (IOS) in California but use the branding of PeopleSpace. Trademark law considered them as a different category since they “sell furniture” and we rent out workspace.
What a coincidence that they are able to ride on my trade mark and SEO to redirect traffic! They SELL furniture to workspace and we ARE a workspace. Clever right?
There’s so much confusion…
We currently receive multiple calls from their vendors, clients and potential employees daily.
I also get their mail as well!
Even Google at one point got us confused and did not understand why there’s two of us. Our listing and information got crossed!
This is so frustrating and they are just trying to stall until I disappear! They have underestimated the power of small businesses and our community!
Help support us and spread the word! Any advice on this is welcomed as well! Can they actually operate here in California when I’ve registered here since 2013? Contact me @ email@example.com if you have any suggestions!
Hope to see you all soon.

Melinda Kim: Select Your Founding Team For Your Business Like You Would A Marriage. Only when your Values are Aligned Will it Stop the Breakup!
Founders need to build the cultural foundation before building the product! Building the right team is more important than just any team.
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” ― Helen Keller
- The importance of taking the time to select the right team
- Recognizing the team challenges
- How to set the right foundation for building a great team
Challenges we see with teams:
- What you really need in a team…Taking anyone is not the right thing to do
- Hiring anyone or for skills dramatically increases the likelihood of failure.
- Founder need to develop their muscles to make smart hiring decisions
- The foundation- transparency & culture
- Purpose- What’s in it for me?
- How and who makes decisions?
- Most importantly, How does the team solve problems?
- Develop the EQ to have the difficult conversations
Framework for Building the Right Team from the Beginning:
- Establish mission, vision & values (as a team)
- Communication standards
- Foster transparency
- Business Model Canvas (product driven)
- Establish process
- Define who you are BEFORE you make your first hire
- Only hire people who mirror your core values and align with your vision
- Great things often come out of conflict
- Culture first
- Hire people who will take you where you want to go

Science of Serendipity
So what is the science of serendipity? It’s definitely NOT networking…
Don’t come to PeopleSpace because you want to network, come get shit done and possibly meet people smarter than you who also feel the same about you.
Through the last 5 years, PeopleSpace has been a space for many and for multiple of reasons. It’s a place where I’ve met like-minded individuals and people who think differently and bigger than me. Learning, growing and building to level up your own standard while challenging others. The serendipity here is being at the right place to have the chance to do the right things at the right time with the right people. It happens here! It happened for me! So I know it can happen to you.
So… Serendipity to us looks a lot like hard work + timing + right tools + right place. PeopleSpace can provide the place and some tools, but hard work is all you and timing is with the universe.
The Science of Serendipity turns out to be an actual topic for innovation… check out more here:
