Why Partner with Draper Startup House
What We Look For
Our Ideal Property
Fun & Quirky: Draper Startup House is built for creative minds, thinking outside the box, and changing the status quo. We look for unique spaces that fit that bill. We do not want to be inside of a larger corporate building, but instead give our innovators space to experiment and create collisions.
Turnkey: The best fit would be an existing boutique hotel, hostel, or large residential property. We will never turn down an opportunity to get creative, so if you have a unique space, we are open to getting creative with it.
Layout: For the Common Areas we are seeking properties that have a large open space indoors and outdoors that can be used for entrepreneurial events, such as pitch competitions and fireside chats. Common areas are also important to generate collisions intended for connection and collaboration. For the residential piece, we are looking for parceled out spaces that we can use as bedrooms with a hint of privacy.
High Foot Traffic & Destination Locations: Draper Startup House is looking for high foot traffic areas close to downtown or city center so that the entrepreneurs can access the local startup community and ecosystem with ease. We also love attractive destination locations for our digital nomads who want to work remotely with other entrepreneurs in a beautiful destination escape.
