#StartupChats | Choosing a Location for Your Startup

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]If you decided to move your startup out of garage, picking the right office location is a big signal that your biz is ready to engage more with the others – customers, investors, partners, etc. And locations come with their own culture, communities, and costs, just like starting up in your own garage gives certain atmosphere to biz. In this episode, we will talk about some key considerations entrepreneurs should make when finding right location for their startups.
