An Innovation Lab In West Chester, PA


We Offer Cozy Coworking…

Walnut St. Labs offers an intimate, small-scale, cozy office to inhabit while you’re crushing tasks or growing your business. We’re right in downtown West Chester, PA. We’re three floors. We’re conference rooms. We’re laid back. We drink a lot of coffee. We become friends. Sometimes we bring our kids here — dogs sometimes too.

Most importantly, you’ll get to know lots of people and build a great network.

And Free, Inspiring Weekly Events…

WSL does events. Two of them. Every. Single. Week. Last year we did at least 104 events. We scratch our heads when we think about it actually. One weekly event is called the Startup Meetup — it’s goal is to highlight a local innovator in a TED style way.

The other weekly event is called Night Owls — it’s at night, of course, and offers locals a chance to rock out projects and chat and create new projects and… No agenda clearly. Then there’s Indie Film Night, too!

And A Pioneering Technology Incubator

We run a different type of incubator. We look for amazing innovation and then bring together everything it needs to get it to market and profitable or acquired. We’re intense and focused. We’re partners with our innovators. We’ve got good instincts.

Check out our portfolio: MongoSluice, Areshay, Rentalist, Open Office Hours and Qio.

Here’s what he had to say about the experience:
