In a little over a decade, co-working spaces have become the preferred place for entrepreneurs to get their startups going. Instead of being alone in their home/apartment/garage/friend’s garage, they are surrounded by like minded people pursuing their own dreams and feeling the same pain they are- and sharing successes with others is also great. In Chicago, you’ve got 1871, Catapult, Inspire and a host of others. St. Louis has T-Rex, Lab1500, Claim, Nebula and TechArtista, Nashville has the Entrepreneurial Center and Washington D.C. has 1776.
