Draper Team at Our Hostels

Together, We're a Movement

What began in Singapore in March 2018 as an initial concept for digital nomads to have a relaxed, yet productive work “office” on a quest to conquer the world, soon became a movement to enable the startup of one million businesses worldwide.

In 2019, when we joined forces with the Draper Ecosystem to form Draper Startup House, the mission of making hospitality the foundation of an entrepreneurial ecosystem became a sustainable reality. Soon after, we opened the first DSH United States coworking location in Austin, TX. Draper Startup House hostels are a place where traveling startups, digital nomads, and the creative and entrepreneurial community can gather to connect, inspire, empower and learn. Through coworking startup events, networking and funding opportunities, and a unique amount of local and global connection, we continue to GO BIG, give back, and drive progress – together.

Our Mission

The Draper Startup House mission is to enable ONE MILLION entrepreneurs by 2030.

By utilizing physical hostel beds to aggregate global talent, Draper Startup House is disrupting the hospitality model by creating true value through building a larger business ecosystem.

Through the use of real human connection, inspired business travel, a diverse-minded community and access to global citizens – one is able to connect to new opportunities, inspire one another to innovate and execute, and empower one another to GO BIG, give back, and drive progress.

Thoroughly enjoyed both our stays at this interesting little place. All members of staff are really friendly, all visitors were lovely, full of info, lots of laughs. Our rooms were really clean, beds comfortable, shower/wet rooms are very high end. Would I stay again... planning to do so so as we speak!!!


Great place to have conversations, network for connections, get inspired for ideas & just chill with other entrepreneurs and innovators. This is as good as it gets in terms of a stay with purpose. Highly recommended if you like to think & operate outside the box.


The place is so cool! Very strategic, high speed connection, very good hospitality, clean, affordable, VERY garden To chill and relax. And the staffs are really nice and always helpfull... Will always comeback there



We exist to connect, inspire and empower the world’s entrepreneurs with versatile shared office spaces.
