A city in the northern Snohomish County of Washington, Arlington is a part of the Seattle metropolitan area sitting on the Stillaguamish River at the feet of the Cascade Range. With a population of only around the 17,926 mark, you will probably get to meet the locals in one of the pubs having after-work beverages. Its economy historically was based on timber and agriculture, but the city has transitioned to a service economy with some aviation jobs up for grabs. Coworking venues are playing their part in further transforming Arlington into a hot bed of entrepreneurial activity and a center of innovation.
Arlington is home to a community of entrepreneurs intent on proving that successful startups do not have to be born in Silicon Valley. The Arlington Economic Development launched "Startup Arlington" in a bid to attract fledgling companies to the area. The county actually has 23 companies on America's fastest growing private company list. Arlington is the perfect place to set up shop as you are close to big-city resources but without the big-city traffic, think a 15-30 minute metro ride to the big smoke. It has a diverse pool of startups happening and a robust customer base making it the perfect home for startups.
With a population of 71% of its residents being 25 years or older with bachelor degrees or higher, there is plenty of talent hanging around the city. Coworking venues are flourishing with the need outstripping supply; so many shared workspace providers are invading Arlington with a passion that is only equaled by its intrepid coworkers.
