When it comes to which U.S. startup hub is the hottest of the hottest, guess which city comes out on top? Our very own hometown of Austin, TX.
At some point in the past few decades, Austin transformed into a glossy city grappling with the growing weight of a litany of shiny titles and rankings: next big boomtown, next privileged home of Google Fiber and top vegan-friendly city of 2013 (despite its robust reputation as a barbecue haven), to name a few.
We won! We won! We won!
It’s a Tuesday night and you’re eating a TV dinner alone. It’s been a long time since you’ve gone out into that world, and you’re a little worried your skills have gotten rusty over the months. What will people think of me? What do I wear? What do I talk about? You can’t stop thinking about the networking get-together your friend told you about days ago. You know the one: the meetup that the startup you’ve been crushing on is going to be at.
Throughout the SpareFoot office, there are whispers of wild creatures known as LDRs–no one knows what they stand for, what they do or when they feed, but their presence is felt and their name feared. We see them fly by with headsets askew on their heads and half-eaten squirrels hanging out of their mouths, and we can’t help but wonder–who are these mysterious beasts?
When we’re not eating Tacodeli every Monday, hungry SpareFeet can be found preparing tuna sandwiches, munching on pistachios, or waxing poetic to the coffee pot in the glorious SpareFoot kitchen. According to a survey by Staples Advantage, 73% of office workers said that a well-stocked kitchen would make them happier at work. It just so happens that 100% of SpareFeet are made happier and fuller by the SpareFoot kitchen, which surpasses “well-stocked” and more closely resembles a treasure trove of food. Welcome to paradise.
