Benefits. Shared workspaces, incubators, and accelerators form a wide range of organizations, all offering tons of benefits – relevant new industry contacts, mentorship, access to investors, & innumerable spontaneous creative opportunities (as well as a physical place to work). It’s this fundamental underlying process of creating & exporting value (in an open, sharing-economy-positive way) that these below communities facilitate, encourage, foster & grow.
Three Bay Areas were targeted, so we’ve created 3 un-ordered lists of Incubators in San Francisco, Silicon Valley, & the East Bay. The Bay Area is a uniquely amazing place in this world to be an independent professional (freelancer and/or entrepreneur), so you can keep a finger on the pulse of what’s happening in Earth’s Tech Mecca.
