From incubator to ‘coup: Wiggio has settled in the Innovation District

Wiggio’s been sort of a vagrant for the past year: We started out working in a house in Cambridge, then we moved into the new MassChallange offices, and now we’ve settled into the BoCoup Loft on Congress Street.
We call our first location in Cambridge an “office”, but it was actually the first floor of one of our angel investor’s houses. Then, MassChallange gave us an offer we couldn’t refuse: to work in their offices in Boston’s Innovation District. We worked alongside 50 other start-ups, which like us, were also working through early-stage development. There were events with guest speakers, and best of all, an office ping-pong table. The atmosphere was young and collaborative, and the perfect place for a start-up to be inspired and to develop.
After a brief residency, we needed to move on and find our own space, which we found at the BoCoup Loft. It’s safe to say that we’ve settled nicely into our cozy new home. Our conference rooms have big comfy couches and we have fresh fruit delivered daily to the office. We’re sharing our space with other companies, and as a small company, it’s great that we can still feel that start-up energy every day.
It’s been a whirlwind of a year. As we’ve been moving around, our user base has been growing, and so has our team. At this rate, who knows? We might be looking for an even bigger space within the Innovation District sometime in the near future.
