Why Startup Communities are Essential

Marketing Podcast with Brad Feld

The Startup Community WayIn this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Brad Feld, c0-author of a new book The Startup Community Way: Evolving an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem.

Brad has been an early-stage investor and entrepreneur since 1987. Prior to co-founding Foundry Group, he co-founded Mobius Venture Capital and, prior to that, founded Intensity Ventures. Brad is also a co-founder of Techstars.

Brad is a writer and speaker on the topics of venture capital investing and entrepreneurship. He’s written a number of books as part of the Startup Revolution series and writes the blogs Feld Thoughts and Venture Deals.

Questions I ask Brad Feld:

  • Have we evolved in the last few years in regards to startups?
  • What makes a startup community?
  • Can you copy successful startup communities?
  • What part does distributed work play in creating startup communities?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • What makes a startup community
  • Why every city with over 100,000 people needs a startup community
  • Why it’s so hard to predict where we are going in 2020
  • If geography still plays a role in terms of creating community

Do More FasterOne of the best ways to get your new business up and going fast is to learn from those that have been there, done that.

For this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast I visit with venture capitalist and entrepreneur Brad Feld, cofounder of TechStars, managing director of Foundry Group,  and coauthor of the new book Do More Faster: TechStars Lessons to Accelerate Your Startup.

TechStars is a mentorship-driven startup accelerator with operations in four U.S. cities. Once a year in each city, it funds about ten Internet startups with a small amount of capital and surrounds them with around fifty top Internet entrepreneurs and investors. Historically, about seventy-five percent of the companies that go through TechStars raise a meaningful amount of angel or venture capital.

The book, Do More Faster, is organized into seven themes: Idea and Vision, People, Execution, Product, Fundraising, Legal and Structure, and Work and Life Balance. A great deal of the content is contributed by TechStars participants and mentors.
