Brad Feld

Cities and towns around the world know that fertile locations for innovation help attract creative people and enable vibrant civic life. Brad Feld's new book, Startup Communities: Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City, examines how to kick-start and nurture a startup scene. An entrepreneur and high profile venture capitalist, Feld details the ingredients necessary to catalyze locations where high growth ventures can flourish. Building great startup communities is not a quick flip, rather, it is a 20 year process. Feld's view explains why entrepreneurs are best able to lead efforts concerning entrepreneurial infrastructure needed to build great innovation scenes.
