...into town. Even homegrown coworking spot Benjamin’s Desk had only its flagship location at 1701 Walnut St.

    The life and times of the now-shuttered Venturef0rth - Technical.ly Philly
    Callowhill coworking space Venturef0rth , home to a cadre of well-known Philly tech startups since its inception in 2012, closed its doors for good last Friday. Executive director Gary Smith, who officially took over the space alongside partner Joshua Matthias in 2016, sent an email to members on September saying the competitiveness of the coworking industry and a lack of a profitable model left them no choice but to shutter the space.
