As part of the Founder Institute’s series of free online startup events for entrepreneurs practicing social distancing, on October 13th we were pleased to welcome investor and author Brad Feld for an interactive webinar event on the topic of Building Great Startup Communities.
In 2012, Brad Feld (Co-Founder / Partner of Foundry Group, Co-Founder of Techstars) released Startup Communities, a book widely regarded as the seminal text for building supportive entrepreneurial ecosystems. In his latest book, The Startup Community Way, Brad provides an updated guide and outlines seven core requirements to thriving startup ecosystems.
In this video, Jonathan Greechan (Co-Founder of the Founder Institute) discusses with Brad the most recent best practices for building thriving startup ecosystems, and take questions from the live audience. If you are an entrepreneur, investor, community leader, policy maker, educator, or startup enthusiast, watch to hear directly from one of the world's foremost experts on startup communities.
