From The Center Square Journal comes an interesting story about local Web-related businesses that are finding a comfortable and affordable home in Ravenswood, North Center and nearby.
The startup atmosphere is part of why the EveryBlock team chose the Ravenswood corridor.
“There’s a lot of startup activity around here,” said EveryBlock founder Adrian Holovaty. “It just seems like a really vibrant area.”
His colleague, Dan O’Neil, agreed. “There’s a lot of tech firms in the area … We don’t get together and hold hands, but we’re aware of each other.”
Other fast-growing companies based in Ravenswood include crowd-sourcing T-shirt designer Threadless, nationally known Web designers Weightshift, the creators of Gapers Block and specialty food company Urban Accents.
