Dogpatch Labs was created by Polaris Venture Partners to connect entrepreneurs and help founders conceive and launch startups. They offer desk space, bandwidth, coffee and snacks to aspiring entrepreneurs. Dogpatch Labs has four locations: Cambridge, MA; Palo Alto, CA; New York, NY; and a European location in Dublin. In 1996, Jon Flint, Terry McGuire, and Steve Arnold founded Polaris Venture Partners. Their vision was to identify and invest in exceptional entrepreneurs and operating companies with innovative and disruptive ideas, the skills necessary to become market leaders, and a passion for success. Since its inception, Polaris has believed that diversification across company stage and across industries is the key to outstanding long-term results for the firm’s limited partners.
