Business incubator helping FOSS start-ups

Upstarta Labs provides the space and people can rent desks there; the costs are low and Lentz also provides mentoring.

“There are quite a few incubators and co-working spaces sprouting all over the place,” Lentz told iTWire. “Depending on their model, some disappear rapidly (possibly lack of solid budget), some are very expensive ($500-600/desk/month) and, just like with a share-house, the question is whether you will jive at all with the others there.”
