Remember That VB&P/Craigslist Thing? Either Way, Here’s the End Result

You may recall that in December of last year, we told you that San Francisco agency Venables Bell & Partners was leasing some of its office space to a lucky few for the rather economical price of $10/year as part of its 10th anniversary celebration.

Finally, after narrowing the competition down from 60 to 14 finalists for a sit-down, four Bay Area entrepreneurs were selected by a panel that included founder/ECD Paul Venables, president/co-founder Bob Molineaux, head of strategy Lucy Farey-Jones and ECD Will McGinness. After an eight-month process, the panel has picked Kalon Gutierrez and Luis Garcia, founders of Schoolbags for Kids, Patricia Compas-Markman, a CalPoly engineer who invented the water treatment device DayOne Waterbag and Christian Amundson, an engineer-turned-filmmaker. The video above should sum things up well enough for you.
