Startup offers bare-bones office space [Startup Roundup]

Plus: RedBerrry starts its stint at a Philadelphia accelerator, and Allovue debuts a website redesign.

One desk, one chair. A new startup keeps office space simple.


Who’s making moves?

McKeever Conwell started last week at a Philadelphia accelerator with his new venture, the social shopping app RedBerrry.
ZeniMax Online Studios, with offices in Hunt Valley, laid off an unspecified number of employees on its “Elder Scrolls Online” team, gaming blog Joystiq reported.
Kinglet launched this week. The Baltimore-based service lets entrepreneurs rent the most basic office space there is: a desk and a chair, the Baltimore Business Journal reports.

Who’s getting funded?

The Japanese government is offering to put up $5 billion toward a maglev line connecting Baltimore and Washington, D.C., The Baltimore Sun reported. State law currently prevents Maryland officials from spending any money assisting in any such high-speed rail project, which could cost upwards of $10 billion.

Who’s getting buzz?

The Mid-Town Belvedere edtech startup Allovue redesigned its website last week.

Companies: RedBerrry / Allovue
