Multi Space Chains in Philmont See coworking companies with multiple locations in Philmont
More a village than a city, Philmont sits in Columbia County of New York with a tiny population of 1,379 souls meandering its streets, slurping on coffee in cafes and getting creative in coworking venues with likeminded people. Once known as "Factory Hill" because of the number of wool factories in its midst, the town was incorporated in 1891. Philmont wallows serenely on the banks of the Agawamuck Creek that is a tributary of Claverack Creek, which flows into the Hudson River. It's home to Columbia County's highest waterfall that cascades 150ft into a huge pool, so the area is a wonderland for adrenalin junkies who like to splash around.
Philmont is not a tech hub per se, but it does have its tech savvy souls meandering around the village. New York has a maturing tech scene that currently boasts around 6,300 startups with tech jobs growing at a rate of 30% over the last decade. Most startups focus on the likes of finance, real estate, fashion and enterprise, which is historically what New York is known for. Apparently there are 7,500 New York based tech companies that are supported by $38.4 billion in investment funds. This has happened over the last 5 years and is underpinned by huge networks of accelerators, incubators, universities and the necessary meet-ups where creatives can mingle. With so many Fortune 500 companies within its midst, fledgling startups are thriving off their success by partnering up with or developing products that enhance what their much larger competitors have on offer.
Breaking into this scene for the most intrepid of innovative souls can be on the daunting side which is where coworking venues come into play as one of the convivial places to hang out, create and get to mingle with those in the know, especially in Philmont where it's easy to get to know the person beside you.
