We've all read about Steve Jobs (and Bill Gates), starting companies in garages. It's a classic way to start as an entrepreneur. In this economy, there are lots of entrepreneurs, some because they've lost their jobs, some because there are always good, new ideas out there. And, at some point, they outgrow the garage and look for space.
That may be why the type of space most in demand now is small industrial or flex space. It appeals to entrepreneurs--it's affordable, easy to use in a variety of ways, and readily available. So, if you own that kind of space, think about leasing it to the next Steve Jobs. You could become famous!
