Signs of a Strong Tech Ecosystem

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

In building out your startup ecosystem, look for these signs to know if you are on the right track:

  • Does the ecosystem have strong clusters of founders and developers that meet up regularly?
  • Does the local community foster the startup ecosystem?
  • Is failure acceptable or not an option?
  • Is there a local university that is providing education and other resources to budding founders?
  • Are there a number of startup programs available in the form of accelerators and incubators?
  • Are there events around the startup community including weekly, monthly and annual events?
  • Are founders and developers moving to the area to participate?
  • Is there media coverage of the startup ecosystem in various forms such as news sites, topical blogs, and listicles?
  • Are there venture capital and angel investors active in the area?
  • Are there service providers available for legal, accounting, and financial services?

Look for these signs that you have a growing entrepreneur ecosystem.
