Why Startup Communities are Essential
In 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
