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!

Matt Monihan of RJMetrics rejects the characterization of entrepreneurship as a roller coaster ride. “It’s more that YOU are the roller coaster, and it’s a matter of taming yourself being that rollercoaster.”read more
Walnut St. Labs initial run of the 3D Printer Boot Camp was a complete success. We’ve been updating with our progress along the way, and everyone’s hard work paid off. 5 local innovators walked in last Friday 6/26 and all of them walked out with a 3D printer they each built themselves with the help and support of one another and the resident Maker Technicians at WSL.read more
Frank Coates of Wheelhouse Analytics believes, “It’s all about finding small pockets of need in these big financial organizations that other IT companies find underworthy of their investment. A small company like ours can do that.”read more
I was looking for a phone number to call Printrbot today. No luck, but I did find specs for the Z Axis Rod Ends. Ok, not exciting to you, but it was bitter-sweet to me. You see, fitting the rod into this end required a few well-placed taps by a hammer, followed by several full-body swings of Mjölnir (aka Thor’s hammer).read more
Wilhem, Andrew and I cracked open the box looking for a fun couple of hours of build time with the Printrbot “Play Kit” 3D printer. We had our tools in hand, a nice wide desk and a GoPro ready to document our afternoon conquest in preparation for the Walnut St 3D Printer Bootcamp.read more
