Rockville is no tech hub per se, but it does sit in the United States where it’s becoming increasingly harder to break into the tech scene with a fledgling startup. The slowing down of new tech businesses is being attributed to numerous factors, such as an aging population and fewer technologies and ideas to exploit. The tech titans such as Facebook, Apple and Amazon are dominating the playing field, leaving less room for innovators to break in.
With a mature ecosystem, the fledgling startups of the United States today need to dream bigger, get craftier and widen their imaginations to capture a new market space. Coworking venues are providing the space for collaboration for the tech savvy souls who have the hope and the will to succeed, or simply the space to work for remote workers.
