Co-working locations are popping up all over Pittsburgh. Spaces like these are helping to grow the local technology sector by providing young companies with structure and the connections needed to flourish.
StartUptown, where the Web Communications Group landed in early 2013, is an open and energetic space full of excitement and opportunity. Being in this space has helped us make contacts and build relationship that the team otherwise would have missed. But beyond that, there are tax incentives and internships that are available. Both of these benefits help us fulfill a part of our business plan’s social entrepreneur contract:
- to inject resources in an economically distressed community by locating our business within it;
- to provide a web technology education to young people in the Pittsburgh area.
It is thrilling to see the recent press on co-working locations in Pop City Media. We are excited to see how expansive the movement really is in Pittsburgh and very grateful to StartUptown for the opportunity to be a part of it.
