By Brad Feld and Ian Hathaway
STARTUP COMMUNITIES: Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City (Wiley; 2nd Edition, July 28, 2020) by Brad Feld reveals how startup communities continue to pop up across the U.S. and around the world, prompting fresh revelations and stories about what has happened over the last decade, and what makes a startup community first click, then hum, and in time, excel.
First published in 2012, Startup Communities originated Feld’s now classic Boulder Thesis, which revealed how his hometown of Boulder, Colorado became a hotbed of startup activity (even as a city of only 100,000 people), and quickly became a blueprint for what it takes to build a supportive entrepreneurial ecosystem. The Financial Times called the book “a framework for startup communities” and “also an insight into why the US is such an entrepreneurial nation.”
