The "edge city" suburb of Philadelphia, Mount Laurel has a population of about 41,221 people meandering its streets. This is home to NFL Films, so put on your big smile and flash those white teeth if you want a job as an "extra" on a film set. Known for its Veterans' Memorial and great playground for the kids to get up to mischief or for the adults that haven't grown up, Mount Laurel has an awesome mammoth grassy hill used for concerts in the summer and sledding in the winter. This is your typical urban city with everything you could possibly need at your fingertips including coworking venues for creative souls who like to work within a dynamic community space.
Sitting in the United States where fewer people are taking the plunge into the startup realm compared to previous years, Mount Laurel is like many other small cities where high-tech businesses need to regroup, rethink and rehash to come up with new ideas that haven't been exploited by the tech giants. This 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 acting as the space where remote workers can get busy.
