Start a makerspace in Tampa?

I have been trying to turn a 3bedroom house with a big yard into a makerspace but the only 2 interested groups wanted an exclusive agreement, despite FREE rent, and didn't seem to want to do much except collect fees from other people. How can I get creative people who want to collaborate, innovate, and learn and DO? It could certainly be an incubation for sustainable business that need a place to experiment, or a lab or anything, I just don't want it to be a constant power struggle with no plan, and no results.
