Dogpatch Labs at Union Square

Polaris Ventures are launching the New York branch of their Dogpatch Labs initiative; an eco-system that houses start-ups for 3-6 months.  Providing them with a free place to live, wi-fi, coffee and snacks, they’re also equipped with an opportunity to develop their business in the space until they can acquire investors to continue their business or project. Central to the function of the space is what General Partner, Peter Flint, coins as ‘open source entrepreneurism; basically collaboration’.  Besides accommodation in an environment that breeds connectivity, Flint and his team host strategic meet-ups or dinners discussing subjects which can further nurture their development.
