“It’s not about having a Silicon Valley attitude — it’s about having an entrepreneurial attitude. It’s about partnering with other organisations in and around your area. It’s about collaborating with tech gurus, social media wizards and community leaders at cool business events. It’s the people that make a community an entrepreneurial one — not the location.”


Brad Feld
