Dogpatch Labs was created by Polaris Venture Partners to connect entrepreneurs and help founders conceive, launch and grow startups.
Dogpatch Labs has four locations:
- Cambridge, MA (1 Cambridge Center, 6th Floor)
- Palo Alto, CA (151 Lytton Avenue)
- New York, NY (36 East 12th Street) Mailing List
- Europe (The Warehouse, 35 Barrow Street, Dublin)
We offer desk space, bandwidth, coffee and snacks to aspiring entrepreneurs. Our locations are wide-open, fun spaces that we respectively share with local startups (Social Media in San Francisco, and Techstars in Cambridge). They are sorta like frat houses for geeks.
But we are much more than a physical space — we are a community of like minded entrepreneurs who share a spirit of “open source entrepreneurship,” the idea that, particularly at the very earliest of stages, we all benefit by fostering connection points between and amongst entrepreneurs and startups. Whether it is sharing space, sharing ideas, sharing referrals, networking, or just hanging out, we all thrive on the flow of ideas, people and relationships. So, in addition to a workspace, we also use the lab frequently as a meeting place — for dinner events, brown bag lunch talks, workshops, conferences, symposia and good ole’ pizza and beer nights.
