How to Create a Healthy Local Startup and Tech Community

That prediction obviously turned out pretty wrong, but it did drum up a whole lot of chatter about the right ingredients for building a startup community—about New York vs Boston on the East Coast and whether cities like Austin and Seattle would ever break through. Community isn’t organic.

A Great Example of A Professor’s Involvement With A Startup Community

Feld Thoughts

I have a chapter in Startup Communities that uses CU Boulder – and specifically Silicon Flatirons – as an example of a much better way than the traditional approach (circa 2012) for a university to engage with the startup community. Phil’s note to the Silicon Flatirons community follows. Supporting entrepreneurs in our community is a central part of our mission. He continually strives to connect the university and surrounding startup community.

Community Rot

This is going to be BIG.

Only, a weird thing happens when you don't put your time into the community--when you don't grab a booth at Techday or Uncubed. That's not a winning strategy either--but there's something to putting the facetime into the more aspirational places in your community, especially in NYC. Lists are b t. That's what you get a lot of times when you ask people about the latest "25 Startups You Should Know About" in name your tech publication.

How Community Involvement Can Help Your Startup

YoungUpstarts

When we think of giving back to the community, we often think of dramatic relief efforts like those that supported the victims of Hurricane Katrina back in 2005. But, as the old saying goes, “It is more blessed to give than to receive,” and many companies and people have discovered over the years that giving back to communities has many great side effects.

Startup Communities Are Up To The Entrepreneurs

Feld Thoughts

As I continue to talk about Startup Communities , I say over and over and over again that the leaders have to be entrepreneurs. Now – members of feeder organizations can play a leadership role, but in the absence of a critical mass of entrepreneurs, the startup community won’t ever develop into anything meaningful. For example, when he asked, “What’s the most important step an entrepreneur can take to create a startup community?”
