Walnut St. Labs is a co-working and events space and a startup incubator located on Walnut St. It was founded by Chris Dima in November of 2013, and built by a strong community of innovators from the region.

Founder Spotlight

Chriscd Dima is a graduate of West Chester University and a resident of the borough of West Chester, PA. 10 years ago, he threw his city commute out the window and decided he’d find a way to work within walking distance of his home. He found a career at Economy.com — now Moody’s Analytics — which is located right by the YMCA in town. During his tenure, he developed a broad skill set that allowed him to start making his own internet-based products and startup ideas. Chris leads strategic development and overall operations at Walnut St. Labs.
