Multi Space Chains in Park City See coworking companies with multiple locations in Park City
Well known to ski bums and film buffs, this small mountain town (less than 8,000 permanent inhabitants) is home to multi-million dollar startups where freelancing professionals, wandering nomads and savvy entrepreneurs can create fast-growing businesses. Park City is known for its annual Sundance Film Festival, apart from being nicknamed "Silicon Slopes". The inhabitants get to live their lives communing with nature in one form or another - think white snow blankets in the winter and adventure sports in the summer months.
With its proximity to the tech hubs of Provo and Salt Lake City and being home to a large number of local angel investors with extremely deep pockets, it is no wonder that Park City has become a startup hot spot. Cuddled by the rugged Wasatch Range and bordered by Park City Mountain and Deer Valley Resorts, the city hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics. Cloaked in 19th Century buildings from its silver mining heritage, the city is a magnet for professional executives from Silicon Valley where coworking is the viable alternative to setting up their own individual offices.
Coworking spaces are springing up everywhere around town to cater to the office needs of laptop totting adventurous souls and those professionals needing somewhere to conduct their business from. Many of the startups get their inspiration from the environment surrounding them, such as Skullcandy that makes designer headphones for snowboarders, surfers and skaters.
If you are looking for work in Park City there are plenty of opportunities happening where you will even be given a season's pass to one of the local ski resorts so that coffee and lunch breaks take on a whole new meaning. From one CEO of a tech company in Park City: "We've got a powder rule — 6 inches of fresh powder in the morning, we expect you to go carve some turns," he said.
