How to Attract Startups to Your Startup Ecosystem 

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

In building your startup ecosystem, recruit startups to move to your area.

Here are some best practices to attract them:

It takes technical and business talent to build and grow startups.

Highlight the talent available in the area, both experienced and those fresh out of university.

Set up programs to foster virtual access to developers and others as work increasingly goes online.

It takes someone building the business as well as someone selling it to create a complete founder team. 

Foster founder and co-founder connections through special events. 

Attract venture capital to the area and foster a local angel network to fund the startups.

Set up coworking spaces to give the startups a place to work and connect with others.

Set up events to celebrate startup successes such as companies raising funding or going public.

Connect your startup ecosystem to the larger startup ecosystems around the country to foster an exchange of ideas.

Create a branding and promote it to the rest of the world about the value of your startup ecosystem.

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
