The city originally had an influx of immigrants mostly from Ireland, Italy and Germany and then during the early 20th Century it became a prime destination for African Americans plus Puerto Ricans. Between the years of 1890 and 1950, its population doubled from 1 million to 2 million. With an expanding skyline and home to 5 Fortune 1000 companies, the city is dressed up in more outdoor sculptures and murals than any other American City. Known for its arts, culture and colonial history, Philadelphia now has coworking venues opening their doors on its streets to cater to its emerging biotechnology enclave plus inventive locals. The coworking scene of Philadelphia is being fueled by its digital economy, the fact that funding options are becoming more available and that its top talent are demanding alternative work cultures and office structures. Its tech scene is becoming more diverse and mature with its tech savvy souls forming dynamic communities. Philadelphia, affectionately known as "The City of Brotherly Love", is becoming a hot destination for entrepreneurs and was recently named as one of the top 20 emerging startup hubs.
