There has been a recent shift in this Web 2.0 world that has seen a move from garage startups to cafe startups. Could it be the price of renting office, or garage space vs. hanging out in cafes? Recent reports have garages renting out at $100/month in the valley.
Compare that to three lattes, two coffee’s, a few biscuits a day at Starbucks and obviously price cant be the main determining factor can it? So what has stemmed this move? The biggest factor might be associating with like minded individuals, and the opportunities that lye within.
Cafe’s are a great place to not only work comfortably, and a little cheaper, but a place to strike up conversations with individuals that could quite potentially have complementing products or services, or lead you in the right directions to improve, or sell your offerings.
What are your views on this new shift. Do you see this as a good move by entrepreneur’s to hang out in coffee shops building their businesses? Maybe you use a local cafe as your office to make deals and do business? How is it working out for you?
