I am saddened to share the news that Pier 38, our west coast hub for the last 2.5+ years, will no longer be the home to Dogpatch Labs San Francisco. The Port Authority of San Francisco notified all Pier 38 tenants today that they must vacate the building by the end of September. Pier 38 was home to Dogpatch Labs and many others: True Ventures, 99 Designs, Automattic, etc. Pier 38 really has been a magical home to Bay Area entrepreneurship. It's a truly unique location and atmosphere that encapsulates the founders and their endless energy that called it home. When entrepreneurs, friends, partners, etc walked into Dogpatch and the Pier for the first time, they almost always were taken aback by the space and its vibe.
I am remarkably proud of what Dogpatch Labs did here at Pier 38 and am excited about its future:
- Dogpatch hosted over 250 entrepreneurs and 100+ companies like Instagram, Formspring, TaskRabbit, Recurly, Yardsellr, LOLapps, Appjet, etc.
- In total, these companies have raised over $100m in seed and venture funding.
- And we sat alongside a slew of other great companies and friends: Automattic, Twilio, 99 Designs, Jambool, Social Media, etc.
We are actively working on finding a great new Dogpatch Labs home and hope to be settled and taking applications by end of Q3. More to come!
