Driving Innovation In Chester County and Southeastern, PA
Cowork With Us
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.
Get Inspired By Our 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!
Learn About Our Innovation 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.
3D Print With Us
Walnut St. Labs recently embarked on a sprint down the path of 3D printing. It started off with a tour of NextFab in February 2015. Recently, we held our own workshop!

King’s Hall co-founder Devon Perry shares, “We’re striving to be the Dr. Pepper or A&W root beer rather than Coke or Pepsi. If it’s only the space that you need, and not community, there are other alternatives. We’re a true mom and pop shop because of how we’re invested in the community.”read more
SETVI co-founder Joshua David is a fan of charging for a product, even in beta. “We started selling SETVI in beta. I think you should always charge for your product, because if they’re not buying it, you can identify the problem and fix it.”read more
Serial CEO Lucinda Duncalfe finds that her martial arts training has a lot in common with running a company. “You have to be willing to be vulnerable, the same way as when you come to full speed in an attack in martial arts. Women in particular are terrible at this. We ask for less money, we worry about what people will think. Just GO.”read more
