Cool Tech Incubator Space in Palo Alto

By September 18, 2012Fashion & Design, Start-Ups

After my morning workout today, I walked by TalentHouse – a nifty incubator space in downtown Palo Alto. It had a vibe that made me feel like I’d want to work there:

  • Open and airy
  • Big-ass espresso machine
  • Clean and crisp
  • Local art on the wall
  • and a white drum set and a Gibson Les Paul

I’m also guessing that there are wicked-smart peeps in there working on cool things.

It got me thinking that work surroundings are important to attracting good talent. It’s not the only thing – probably not one of the top 3 – but given the choice to work in a dark, dingy, run down office vs. a clean office that looks like someone gives a shit, the latter is going to win.

Looking for comments: What makes for an awesome work environment for you?
