Known as the “City of Innovation’’, Irvine is on its way to becoming a major tech hub in California. With stunning resources, including a talented workforce and a renowned university (UC Irvine) that boasts a quality computer-science program, venture funding has been flowing into the city. Paired with attractive business incentives, the city has seen a surge of startups growing from strength to strength in recent years, particularly in the biotech and medical technology sectors. Along the way, coworking spaces in Irvine have provided the amenities and environment that has helped these startups get off the ground. This has allowed like-minded individuals to meet, network, and work together to transform ideas into reality.
As well as the considerable benefits in terms of business, there are plenty more reasons to consider coworking in Irvine. The cost of living in comparable Californian tech hubs, like Silicon Beach or Silicon Valley, is much higher than in Irvine. On top of being more affordable, Irvine is also less crowded and regularly tops the charts in terms of America’s safest cities. There’s also a lot to see and do; the ocean is never far away, while the city itself boasts an array of green spaces, attractions, and world-class restaurants. Being a master-planned city, Irvine also enjoys good infrastructure. With enviable year-round weather, it’s possible to cycle pretty much anywhere, while public transit keeps you connected to the major hubs. Indeed, the bulk of coworking spaces in Irvine are clustered around the Irvine Business Complex and the Irvine Spectrum Center. Both can be accessed by public transport.
