Investor Connect Podcast

Steps to Building a Startup Ecosystem 

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

In building the startup ecosystem, the entrepreneurs drive it.

The role of the ecosystem builders is to create connections and networks.

Here are some tools for building connections in your startup ecosystem:

Robust set of meetings, happy hours and coffees, and activities that bring the founders, investors, and providers together.

Meetings foster education and awareness about the topics relevant to startups.

Happy hours and coffees foster networking and making new connections.

Activities such as hackathons attract creatives and developers who want to build new things.

Capture the history behind the startup community.

Tell the stories about entrepreneurs including their successes and failures.

Provide support through the local university and government programs.

This includes coworking spaces, coding schools, Chamber of Commerce programs, and more to support startups.

Finally, keep startups in the community dialog through blog posts, PR announcements, and economic updates.

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.
