Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
Market information on the private club industry (such as Soho House) is unavailable on the public domain. There is also no publicly available data on the number of people in NYC taking continuing ed/technical boot camp courses. We propose going ahead with a report on 7-10 statistics on the US private club industry. This could include the total number of US individuals in these clubs, how many clubs there are in the US and in NYC, and so on.
We recommend proceeding with 5-7 additional on-demand classroom rental options & 7-9 on-demand recording studio rental options in NYC. For each, we will provide their price, address/location, amenities, and contact information. ***NOTE: It would help to know any price range, preferred size/number of seatings, and preferred location in NYC for these rental options***
