We are running a series of posts showing “candid shots” of startup life. Do you have an interesting office or workspace? Send us a picture: info <at> foundersuite <dot com>Techstars
What is it: a top incubator with locations in Austin, Boulder (shown), Boston, Chicago, London NYC and Seattle
Why it's interesting: it's a peek inside one of the most prolific accelerators on the market today. Plus everyone loves a good ping pong game.
Atlanta Tech Village
What is it: a new (2013) startup co-working space in a huge (103,000 sq. ft.) building in Atlanta.
Why it's interesting: it's living proof that vibrant startup communities are springing up everywhere-- not just in Silicon Valley and New York. Also, they have onsite Car Wash Wednesdays.
What is it: a top startup educational provider and co-working space
Why it's interesting: founded just two years ago in NY as a shared office space, GA has quickly exploded to a network of 9 global facilities (Sydney, Berlin, etc.) and a sh*tload of great short- and long-form classes.
What is it: a co-working / community events / collaboration collective (any more c-words that apply?)
Why it's interesting: apparently it's free (?) -- try pulling that business model off in SF or NY -- and it's based in Tucson, AZ (thus, another great example that startup life is sprouting up everywhere).
Cruizioworks / TechRaising
What is it: a co-working and online / offline tech community events in Santa Cruz, CA
Why it's interesting: it's a neat space with cool natural light, and the proximity to the beach / vacation homes along the California coast means they can get mega-star guest speakers like Steve Blank, who owns a ranch near there.
What is it: a co-working space with offices sprouting all over the place (12 in NYC, 3 in SF, plus Chicago, Seattle, DC, LA, etc.)
Why it's interesting: WeWork generally has done a very nice job of converting raw spaces into creative startup offices; this relatively crowded one, in the SOMA / 2nd Street Corridor area of SF, shows how white-hot the office market is around here.
Thanks for reading.
