How to Launch a Startup Ecosystem

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

For those who want to launch a startup ecosystem, follow these steps:

  • Start with a group interested in startups and meet regularly.
  • Encourage startups to share their projects and invite others to support through coaching and making introductions.
  • Set up a blog and publish a newsletter each week on startup activities in the area.
  • Interview startups and investors.
  • Build a resource list for all startups to use.
  • Recruit lawyers, accountants, and other professionals to join the meetings and provide support to the early-stage companies.
  • Set up events such as pitch sessions and happy hours to expand the network and recruit more people into the community.
  • Put the group on website lists for startup communities to generate awareness.
  • Set up a coworking space to give startups a place to work.
  • Recruit startup programs to your area, such as the 3-Day Startup, to provide additional programming.

Start small and grow your startup community through regular meetings and consistent newsletter mailings.
