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
