What to do when someone steals your ideas and your intellectual property

Posted by Devin Henderson on Mar 27, 2018 11:01:50 AM

We recently had a member blatantly copy our website, pricing, and our HUBZone template then open a coworking space in Leesburg. While we are incredibly flattered that they liked our space so much and our website that they copied it, we are more than disappointed in the way it was done. It’s more than just underhanded to take documents and represent to others that you are the original author. It’s the lack of candor and integrity that went into secretly copying all of our content.

So we move on and make sure to put our members at the forefront of our thoughts. We had an internal discussion and we intend to double our efforts to keep our existing members happy. Competition is good, and honestly, Leesburg needs more office space. Leesburg has less than 3% vacancy and much less than that is available in the HUBZone. We are confident that our membership provides a lot of value. We recently updated our conference room software, and just added 8,000 sqft of office space. Additionally, we added a reception area so we can greet your visitors and a larger conference room. With our modern look and meticulous attention to detail, we believe we have the best offices to meet your needs. We also have an exceptionally well-trained staff that can assist you when choosing the best space for your HUBZone needs.

The HUBZone certification process can feel challenging. It’s honestly not that difficult, but regardless we created a template of our HUBZone application.  Now our XCYTE members would have an edge when it comes to getting their certification! Yep, we even kept every SBA correspondence so we can walk you through the process and timeline. And… We kept all the emails and screenshots of the recertification process. You’ve got questions we’ve got answers and examples!
