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. 

this is how all great startup ideas are born

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.

southern-fried startups

General Assembly 

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.

General Assembly NY 

Gangplank
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).

startups, desert-style

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.

Santa Cruz startups? Why yes, I'll take 3 

WeWork
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.

where fledgling startups are hatched-- the communal desk
