Many tech companies got their start in someone’s home — often the house belonging to one of the founders, or at least their parents.
Mojiva, a New York-based mobile advertising startup, has taken a slightly different approach.
The company’s main office is a 3-level luxury apartment — furnished with beds, showers, and all — in Manhattan’s Chinatown neighbourhood.
It’s bright, airy, and even helps save on expensive NYC hotel bills when executives are visiting from out of town.
What, your company doesn’t have meetings in a bed?

BTW, Mojiva's ad network is around 100 million monthly uniques, up from about 35 million in late 2010. It's also seeing big growth from Mocean Mobile, its mobile ad server subsidiary.
