Second week in, I’ve been trying to get a sense for the SF start up community at large.
Here are some links to some of the more interesting spaces I visited this week;
A) If I wrote about all of these places, this would be a very LONG post – check out the websites if you’re interested in visiting SF, they’re worth your time.
B) This is by no means an exhaustive list, far more to come.
C) ALL of them are within walking distance.
Co working space on 11th st (We’re on 5th) – Spent a day here on the ground floor, nice crowd.
2- Rocket Space
A “Tech + New-Media Only” shared space, a lot of activity going on here.
3 – NextSpace
These guys are popping up all over the country, looking forward to finding out more when I visit next week.
4 – The Hattery
These guys are a little bit different, in that they’re more product-focused. Check the (very pretty) site.
5 – The Hub
Another co-working space that seems to be sprouting up across the country, these guys tend to have a more ‘social entrepreneurship’ angle in terms of what kind of startups they house.
One thing that becomes quickly apparent is people’s general open-ness to sharing, so remember to bring your own ideas if you’re going to be attending meetings at different places, and be willing to share your thoughts and opinions on others as well.
Next week: An information diet for the busy entrepreneur.
