45 Successful Startups That Began In A Coworking Space In NYC

A coworking space in NYC is where the next great startup will be created. Starting in a garage in Silicon Valley used to be the path to creating the next great company. This is how Hewlett-Packard, Harley-Davidson, Google, Disney, Apple & Amazon all began.

The flexibility that comes with coworking is ideal for startups that need to add desks quickly and can network with their peers in a friendly and competitive environment.
