      Anderson Start-up Meet-up 2017 Every Other Wednesday

      Building an Entreprenurial Community Together!Every Other Wednesday from 5:30pm to 8:00pm an evolving and growing group of people are gathering to informally discuss the future of Anderson / Madison County. We are a group of People that have started or been apart of a Start-Up Business or Made dramatic impact on Anderson / Madison County. We are following the Boulder Thesis as detailed by Brad Feld: Four key principles of entrepreneurial communities– led by entrepreneurs– 20 year view from today– engage the entire entrepreneurial stack– continually get fresh blood into the system briefly focus on the first – entrepreneurial communities have to be led by entrepreneurs entrepreneurial communities have leaders and feeders feeders include everyone that does things that are inputs into the entrepreneurial community– lawyers– accountants– angel investors– venture capitalists– government leaders are the entrepreneurs– you don’t need a lot to make a huge difference– a half a dozen is a great starting point– but they have to commit for 20 years from today all of the feeders have a role– some feeders try to be leaders – this never works– rhythm is wrong: 20 years vs. 4 of government– personality is wrong: lead vs. support– incentives are wrong: job vs. creative act if the leadership of an entrepreneurial community is co-opted by local government– there might be short term activity– but it will fail over the long term to become sustainable remember: the entrepreneurs need to be leaders if you are a feeder:– identify them– encourage them– support them but let the entrepreneurs be the leaders
