Hero City Difference

In a sea of co-working spaces, Hero City stands out.  Hero City was designed by legendary Venture Capitalist, Tim Draper.  Tim Draper envisioned not just a space but an ecosystem that inspires and supports the next generation of world changing entrepreneurs.

VC Network

At Hero City we know what entrepreneurs really need: access to our global network of VC’s and funds.  Hero City members can sign up for meetings with the VC's.  These meetings are a chance to get expert feedback on your business. 


Hero City members have access to exclusive events, speakers, and content from Draper University.  These events showcase both established and emergent leaders in the startup space.  Learn the best practices from today’s most innovative entrepreneurs.


Hero City is much more than a co-working space.  It is a community of world changing entrepreneurs located in the heart of San Mateo.  With weekly snacks and monthly lunches, our members share ideas and build community.  The Hero City campus is filled with the buzz of aspiring entrepreneurs and corporate innovators from around the world.  Hero City is the place to build, launch and scale your company.

Professional Expertise

Access to capital only represents one part of the entrepreneurial journey.  At Hero City our members are granted free monthly consultations with our lawyers and accountants.  These services help early stage companies save on vital services and accelerate their growth.  

Other Amenities

At Hero City, our members have access to executive-level conference rooms, unlimited printer and scanner use, free coffee and tea and an amphitheater that members can rent out for half the price of the normal rate.
