An inside look at StartupHouse

We love to celebrate local start-up heroes when they strike gold in Silicon Valley but it takes a lot of work to hit paydirt.

We love celebrating the success of local tech start-ups once they have hit the big time but pay scant attention to all the toil leading up to that process. It takes a lot of effort to build an Atlassian or a 99designs and the road to striking gold in Silicon Valley is an arduous one.  

To get an idea of the process and the level of commitment needed by aspiring start-ups I spent a week in San Francisco's Startup House, a 3,344 metres squared warehouse located in the SoMa (South of Market) district of North San Francisco.
