Larry Nelson with Brad Feld, Author, Startup Communities and 
    Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Startup Communities and Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem
enclosure-voice 1666_ 1/26/15 - [Reprint 10/1/12] What does a Startup Community Ecosystem look like? Ask our prolific author and Colorado based VC Brad Feld. Ok, you don't have to, we did. Now you can listen to him. Then you have to read this book. And after digesting all his great advice, one last step, or maybe the first step... "Do it !
Don't wait for permission. Don't wait to talk to someone. Do go to startup events, meetups, tech talks everything you can find and commit to that for at least six months." We began, that is w3w3® Media, 14+ years ago on terrestrial radio and one of our earliest interviews was Brad Feld, a relative newcomer to the Boulder area - already making a name for himself. We've watched him and his wife Amy build their home here, making this community - that's the entrepreneurial, technology (even the arts, the university) and VC communities better and stronger. He's been a champion for the community as a whole and now he's working on the young emerging entrepreneurs, his newest book, "Startup Communities - Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City". Brad said he's used a lot of the ideas that he's been involved in and participated in, in Boulder, since he moved here in the mid-90s, to form the framework for the book, which we called the "Boulder Thesis". They worked hard on defining on what any city in the world should do if they want to create a long-term, healthy entrepreneurial ecosystem. The key parts of the Boulder Thesis are these four components. The first is the startup community has to be lead by entrepreneurs. We separate the world into leaders and feeders. They're both important, but they're different. In the context of startup communities, the only people that can be effective leaders are the entrepreneurs. If you have the other people involved in the startup community, the feeders playing the role of leader, it doesn't work. So government can't be the leader, university can't be the leader, investors, venture capitalists, big business, those can't be the leaders. The Second is those entrepreneurs have to take a long-term view. Brad likes to say, "It's generational, at least 20 years. You can't start and build a sustainable startup community in two or three years." We're in a cycle where startups are exciting, a lot of people get involved in startups, and that's fine. But if you really want to build, in your city, a long term startup community, you have to be in it for a long time. The Third part of the Boulder Thesis is, you have to be inclusive of anyone who wants to engage at any level. This is leaders and feeders, individuals who want to get involved - it's anyone new, who moves to town, anyone who wants to be involved can and should be - Then you're way ahead of the game. The last part is you have to have a series of activities and events that have a regular cadence and rhythm to them. Things like TechStars an accelerator for 90 days, you're doing something that engages the entire entrepreneurial stack. The essence of it is this idea that... Well, listen to Brad he will tell you so much more - read his book and you'll learn so much more. Get started now!

Ryan McIntyre, Managing Director, Foundry Group Venture Investments at Highest Level Since the Internet Bubble
enclosure-voice 1663_ 1/26/15 - Larry is talking with our friend Ryan McIntyre, Managing Director at the Foundry Group, and Larry wanted to get Ryan's take on the economic future. But Ryan tells us as a venture capitalist who works in the technology industry and specifically in the very early stage startups, they don't spend much time at all focusing on the macroeconomic environment. Ryan's involvement in a company comes when it's a couple of people and an idea through hopefully an acquisition or an IPO, a success case. But, he says, "We are by no means public market investors, we are not macro economists, we don't spend a lot of time focusing on what the current state of the economy is. Partially because that is not our area of expertise and we've found over the past number of years that the venture business, particularly very early stage is pretty uncorrelated with the macroeconomic environment..."

Building business from Boulder to Australia
Jana Matthews, International Professor, Consultant and Advisorenclosure-voice 1665_ 1/26/15 - It's been a few years, but we're catching up with Jana Matthews, the roving professor/consultant, advisor to high level powerful business leaders. We first met Jana in Boulder, "You did, I had moved back to Boulder after spending ten years at the Kauffman Foundation doing some of the original work on what entrepreneurs needed to know to grow companies, how do they learn it and how do we package that in the most efficient way for them to learn it quicker." Larry remembered that was where Jana met Brad Feld. "Yes, Brad worked with me at Kauffman and we've been friends quite a long time. Of course he's here in Boulder and I've been in Boulder doing quite a lot of work but, as you say, international as well." Now Jana is spending most of her time in Adelaide, Australia where she is helping them understand how to grow companies. Jana said, "I've just accepted...

Nicole Glaros, Managing Director, TechStars Boulder

Helping entrepreneurs become more successful in their endeavors
enclosure-voice 1656_ 1/12/15 - Nicole Glaros, Managing Director, TechStars - Boulder, gives Larry an overview of the company, which is a seed accelerator. What that means is we take a little bit of capital and we fund early stage companies - and we put them through a 13 week intensive boot camp. In that boot camp, we surround them with mentors, and at the end of that boot camp we hope that the companies are much more successful. Turns out that the formula works, we're running about a 90% success rate since 2007. That means either they've been acquired or still in business, only 10% of them have shut down. TechStars has expanded all over the country with about 15 programs running in the U.S. as well as internationally. Nicole's personal focus is here in Boulder where she runs the local program. But when she's looking at investing in a company, she tells Larry, "I'm looking at anything across the board in the web and Internet software space.
