TechShop Los Angeles

Thank you for pledging your help to open TechShop Los Angeles!

We will contact you to help you complete your pledge.

Please be sure to ask all your friends to help TechShop come to Los Angeles.
 

 

Update

TechShop LA will not be opening at The Reef as originally planned. The Reef decided the terms of the original LOI were no longer acceptable and has withdrawn its offer. TechShop is committed to the LA market and continues to work with the City of Los Angeles and other partners to identify and explore new locations that meet the needs of the maker community in LA.

 


WE NEED YOUR HELP TO OPEN
TECHSHOP LOS ANGELES!

All of our TechShop locations nationwide were funded directly by individuals just like you in the local community. We need you and everyone else who wants TechShop to come to Los Angeles to pitch in and help.

You can help by pledging your support in several ways:

  1. Pledge to Become a TechShop Los Angeles Lender with $25,000 or more (you'll earn 8% annual interest, and you'll get a TechShop VIP Lifetime Membership for you and your entire immediate family).

  2. Pledge to Become a TechShop Investor by purchasing $25,000 or more of TechShop preferred stock, and you'll get a TechShop VIP Lifetime Membership for you and your entire immediate family).

  3. Pledge to Purchase a TechShop Lifetime Membership for $10,000, a TechShop Lifetime Partner Membership for you and your spouse or domestic partner for $12,500, or a TechShop Lifetime Family Membership for your immediate family (spouse or partner, and kids under 21) for $13,000. You'll enjoy access to all current and future TechShop locations in the US including TechShop Los Angeles.

  4. Pledge to Become a Monthly TechShop Member at the discounted 2-year lock-in price of $125 per month (with automatic credit card charge each month, but charges don't start until TechShop Los Angeles opens, and there is a 3-month minimum -- that's a savings of $25 per month).

  5. Pledge to Make a Donation to help build TechShop Los Angeles ($25 to $1,000 or more, every dollar helps).
Please fill out the form below and indicate how you would like to pledge to help open TechShop Los Angeles. Please include your name, address, phone number, and email address. Then, we will contact you and help to arrange your payment for your pledge.

Everyone who pledges their support in some way will have their name included in the Founding Members display at TechShop Los Angeles, as long as we reach our goals for pledges.

Everyone who pledges to become a TechShop member (either by becoming a lender or buying a lifetime or monthly membership) and follows through with their pledge will also be granted early VIP pre-opening access to the various areas of the TechShop Los Angeles workshop as they are made available. You'll be able to work on your projects before the general public has access.

Please tell EVERYONE you know about TechShop and let them know that we are calling for support to open TechShop Los Angeles, and enlist their help. Send them the link to this page (http://www.techshop.com/ts_los_angeles.html), and encourage them to sign up on this page and help however they can.

Without the active help of you and everyone else who wants TechShop to come to Los Angeles, we just can't make it happen. So please don't wait...we need your help today. The opening of TechShop Los Angeles depends on you.

Thank you from the entire TechShop team.
