San Francisco, CA, April 26, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Startup Policy Lab (startuppolicylab.org), a nonprofit that connects policymakers with the innovators changing the world through emerging technology, today published their Workspace Case Study 2015 (http://bit.ly/1T2q85M). The Workspace Case Study examined the unique characteristics of the startup communities at two leading workspaces in Silicon Valley: Runway Incubator in San Francisco and Hacker Dojo in Mountain View.
Through in-depth surveys and investigative research, Startup Policy Lab examined over 80 startups, evaluated over 200,000 data points, and pulled data from leading startup data sources Angel List and Crunchbase to learn the best methods to collect data about the dynamic startup community, surface patterns between different communities, and better understand the characteristics of startups within workspaces.
Building on the success of the Workspace Case Study, Startup Policy Lab is launching the Workspace Performance Benchmarking Index to further inform best practices by workspaces to support successful and dynamic startup communities.
“Policymakers and researchers around the world are looking at workspaces as hubs of innovation, and seeking to identify the best practices to support local startup communities,” says Charles Belle, founder and CEO of Startup Policy Lab. “Through our partnership with Runway and Hacker Dojo, we have been able to surface insights about the startups that inhabit these workspaces, informing best practices on how to nurture startups, expand opportunity, and support communities that drive innovation. Our next step is to expand our research efforts into best practices by launching the Workspace Performance Benchmarking Index (See the survey here: http://bit.ly/1TqdBfb). We look forward to working with more workspaces around the country to build this index.”
