In their weekend article "San Francisco sees influx of tech incubators", The San Francisco Chronicle's Carlyn Said visited Pier 38 (home of Dogpatch Labs San Francisco) to study these emerging workspaces and communities. In her exploration of San Francisco workspaces and incubators, Said arrives at a premise similar to our core tenet of open source entrepreneurship: "[Entrepreneurs] do it for the cross-fertilization with other entrepreneurs."
Now with three locations (San Francisco, New York and Cambridge), Dogpatch has roughly 150 active residents (and an even larger list of graduates). We believe that 'cross fertilization' is important both within each space and across the three locations. And as we host events and have new residents join the lab, the key ingredient with search for is collaboration.
